Just yesterday, we covered the French media’s reaction to Iliman Ndiaye’s recent form at Olympique Marseille.

Since his arrival from Sheffield United on a €17m deal last summer, the striker has been failing to show he’s been worth all that investment.

Today, outlet Le10 Sport features some comments made on L’Equipe which criticise Ndiaye’s latest games.

Pundit Giovanni Castaldi went heavy on the former Sheffield United player, making it clear that Marseille made a big mistake with his signing.

“The recruitment had potential, but nothing is confirmed. Correa is a ghost, Ndiaye’s best move was to do keepie-uppies in front of the Gare Saint-Charles, but on the pitch, he’s an absolute disaster,” said Castaldi.

Since his arrival at Marseille, Ndiaye had one goal and three assists in 24 appearances, and that’s indeed a very low impact for a player who arrived full of expectations around him.

The striker’s contract with the Ligue 1 side runs until 2028, so there’s plenty of time for him to recover.

Sheffield United may be in the need of goals this season, but it’s hard to imagine them regretting such a sale with him getting so much criticism for his season in France.

Marseille are now 8th in the Ligue 1 table, and that’s why their past transfer windows are getting heavily questioned.
