Portrait of the new midfielder for Olympique de Marseille, Morgan Sanson, a sure bet for the future.

He is one of the most talented players of his generation. Humble, discreet and hardworking, Morgan Sanson follows a constantly progressing since his first steps as a soccer player in Bourges,a few kilometers from his birth place, Saint-Doulchard, a suburb of Borges, in Cher, same as 1988 world champion, Bernard Diomède.
Fragile, but already very technical in his debut, the midfielder first played defense, he then took a center position while training at Le Mans. In Sarthe, he perfects his range, brings volume , signs his first professional contract and gets very little game time in Ligue 2.
His club faces financial difficulties and Montpellier jumps at the occasion to attract him at a lower cost.
Under the leadership of Rolland Courbis, Morgan is immediately an essential element in Hérault's midfield. In a different class, he takes the place of La Mosson stars, Cabella and Belhanda. His natural qualities allows him to get used to Ligue 1 easily.
An intelligent, tireless player, in his sense placement and movement, a passer and an unparalleled center, he is known for his versatility.
He is best in the role of midfielder, where his ball protection and his ability to run forward quickly is a wonder, he can also play behind the striker, on the side and even disrupt the defense's front. A complete midfielder, whose rise was suddenly halted in Spring 2015 by a torn ligament. From his own admission, this injury allowed him to "grow and toughen up."
BPolished over the years and fervently coveted by decision makers at Olympique de Marseille, Morgan Sanson is now ready to take on his new challenge: boldly defending the Olympique de Marseille colors, with number 8 on his back.

Sanson: "I respect the shield from life until death"
