Grégory Sertic, between experience and versatility30 jan 2017
A Girondin since 2005, Grégory Sertic is inevitably associated with the FCGB. He has seen it all: the primary roster, the titles, the captaincy and the injuries.
Born on August 5, 1989 in Brétigny-sur-Orge, in Essonne, the new Olympien developed with the various football clubs from his hometown before joining INF Clairefontaine, where Bordeaux discovered him in 2005 at the age of 16.
From then on, the Franco-Croat, on his paternal grandfather's side, climbed the ranks one by one and signed his first professional contract 3 years later.
His constant progression continued with the club sporting the scapular with a short stint with Lens in 2010-2011. Season after season, Grégory Sertic confirmed himself as a mainstay of the Girondin locker room. Winner of all the national trophies with the "white and marine", he regularly wears the captain's armband, an indicator of his importance with his teammates.
Capable of playing in all midfield positions, but also central defender, he stands out with his quality passes, his ability to read the play and his free kick abilities.
On the verge of making the Croation national team, his ascent is halted abruptly on August 11, 2015 against Reins, during the first day of Ligue 1. In the 25th minute of play, Sertic left on a stretcher. The verdict came a few days later: torn anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee.
A full season later, he resumed play. His strength of character and his football skills permitted him to quickly return to his spot among Jocelyn Gourvennec's top eleven players.
At the end of his contract with the Girondins in June 2017, Grégory Sertic adds a new dimension to his career by joining the OM this winter.
Welcome to Marseille, Grégory!
