Transferred this summer to Olympique Marseille for 15 million euros, Valentin Rongier is gradually emerging as an important element of the device of Andre Villas-Boas. Eager to register for the duration with the club, the former Nantais also implied, in an interview with the newspaper The Team, that the OM could be a good springboard to aim higher.
"I signed here for five years, not just for one or two seasons. I see myself here in the long term and I hope that we will play European competitions over the duration of my contract. A notch above FC Nantes, OM offers a very high visibility. It was the right way for me to cross a course, without grilling step "said the 24-year-old midfielder.
