Djibril Sidibe gave an interview in France and talked about AEK’s matches with Marseille and everything he encountered in our country.
Djibril Sidibe gave an interview to “Equipe” on the occasion of AEK’s match with Marseille (9/11, 22:00, COSMOTE SPORT 5HD, LIVE SPORT24).
The French full-back referred to what he has encountered in our country, the reasons he chose the Union, the matches with the French team, but also the national team of his country.
About the first game between AEK and Marseille he said: “In Marseille, our tactics didn’t work well and there was a reluctance from some players. They came to the Velodrome, they saw the amazing choreo, but you had to go in and play straight away, there was no time to admire.”
Regarding his move from Monaco to Greece, he said: “When you move from Monaco to Greece, you should not have any heart problems. Fans light flares, firecrackers go off everywhere. On average, crosses in our home games start 8 minutes late as you can’t see any of the smoke. They throw flares during the match. I had never seen this before. There are restrictions in the European games and the atmosphere is more classic.”
For the reasons he chose AEK, he emphasized: “I had many contacts, but I was hoping for something better, I was playing with fire. I didn’t take the financial situation with the coronavirus seriously. I turned down offers from Wolfsburg, Fiorentina, because of the financial terms or the European perspective. It was bad for me, weeks went by and I only got knocks from second-tier teams. AEK came with a project to become number 1 in Greece and I don’t regret my choice”.
For the French national team he pointed out: “I’m doing everything to wear this shirt sooner or later”.
