Lusk striker Burak Yilmaz did not hide his indignation when Jocelyn Jorvink released him in the second half against Brest (1-1), Saturday during the eleventh day of the French Ligue 1.
Unhappy Burak Yilmaz. Less efficient than last season (3 goals in 9 matches), the Lille striker on Saturday night was poor to receive Brest (1-1) at the Pierre-Moroy stadium. While the Mastiffs were under surveillance by the British, Jocelyn Gurvink decided to leave the Turkey international in the 77th minute. A choice that did not satisfy the scorer at all.
Burak Yilmaz is already straight back to the locker room, knocking on a water bottle, very upset. He came out docked and dressed first without looking at anyone, 10-15 minutes before the other guys. “I didn’t see, I was discussing,” Jocelyn Gurvenick said at a press conference.
Jorvinik: “We just have to say things to each other”
In addition to the delicate sporting situation, coach Lusk also returned to the malaise of Yilmaz. “I took him out because he plays a lot and I don’t want to put him in the red. For our strikers, it’s a game where there was only a little space.” Is there a problem with Yilmaz? “He’s always been a striker who moves a lot and moves very well, loosening up Jorvinik. He weighs down the defences. He’s a great player with a great career and he’s less successful but always in effort, it’s not that hard for management, we just have to talk about things together. Some. And as volcanic as it is on Earth, it’s also very clear and quiet when we discuss together at the training center. And I repeat, his exit, I repeat, was to avoid putting him in the red.” A year ago against Nice, Yilmaz apologized two days after taking the same position when he was succeeded by Christoph Galtier. How about this year?
