With four goals and a decisive pass in the French Ligue 1, all in 22 matches including 11 titular, Clinton Njie’s record is rather mixed for his first season at Olympique Marseille.
Sometimes targeted by the critics of the OM fans, mainly because he was a former protégé of Jean-Michel Aulas at the OL and he hesitated a long time to say yes to the club of the Phoenix last summer, the Cameroonian striker is nevertheless committed to Marseille.
Indeed, according to L’Equipe, Tottenham, who had lent Clinton Njie to OM last summer with automatic purchase option, will not play the clause that allowed them to get back the young striker if they wanted to. In other words, the Spurs are letting go a player who had been recruited for for 17 Million Euros from the OL and who was eventually sidelined by Mauricio Pochettino after a few weeks. It’s now left to Clinton Njie to prove under the shirt of Olympique de Marseille that he was better than that.
