The doubts concerning the continuation of the Mexican adventure for the Frenchman were founded. André-Pierre Gignac’s club has just announced the departure of former Marseillais Florian Thauvin. His contract, which ran until 2026, was terminated by Mexican club Tigres.

“Club Tigres informs that the decision has been taken to end the contractual relationship with the player”, indicated in a brief press release the management of the Tigres who at the start of the exercise are prancing at the head of the Mexican championship. opening. “He was a little sacrificed by the Tigers. We had to break a contract and it was him”, was indignant Sasha Beckermann in the show Europe 1 Sport.

Transferred in 2021

World champion 2018, the ex-Marseillais had joined the Tigres as a reinforcement for the 2021 opening tournament. In 18 months he took part in 39 games in the jersey of the Tigres (38 in the Mexican league and one in the League Cup , opposing Mexican clubs to those of MLS in the United States) for a meager total of eight goals and five assists. Far, very far from the level of his now ex-comrade, adored in Monterrey, André-Pierre Gignac, top scorer in the history of the club with 179 goals.

Thauvin, 29, like other Frenchmen before him, defender Timothée Kolodziejczak or striker Andy Delort, will ultimately not have left his mark in the history of the Tigers.

The separation statement, however, underlines “the efforts and professionalism shown by (Thauvin) throughout the past year and a half” to the Monterrey Tigers who wish him “much success in his future projects”. Florian Thauvin, after Bastia, Lille, Newcastle (England) and Marseille, is free to join any club that wants to take advantage of his admittedly mixed experience in South America.

No return planned at OM

The question that football fans are now asking is: where will he bounce. According to the newspaper La Provence, a return of the former OM player to the Marseille club is to be forgotten. Pablo Longoria would have quickly closed the door to this option.

“I’m afraid for him. I’m afraid that we lost this” guy “”, worried Grégory Schneider in Europe 1 Sport. The former tricolor is therefore free of any contract for the moment. Possible recruitment proposals from clubs should be revealed in the coming weeks.
