OM 2017
The Japanese international continues his Olympien adventure with an additional season.

He arrived on tip-toes in the summer of 2016, but since then, Hiroki Sakai has won over fans at Marseille. The Japanese, who was under contract with OM until June 2020, this week extended it by one season until 2021.
Having arrived at OM after four years in Bundesliga (Hanover), he managed to very quickly acclimatise to Marseille and France. His 34 titles during the 2016-17 season showcase this right back's journey, also frequently chosen by Vahid Halilhodzic.

Rudi Garcia appreciates his character, temperament and profile. Being rather at ease offensively (Hiroki is recognised for the quality of his centre kicks), he quickly seized his chance and met the requirements needed for the defensive and athletic demands of the Ligue 1
This contract extension is good news for the club which is keeping an important player in the squad over a time.
