Marseille signing Cuisance revisits Leeds transfer collapse

Olympique Marseille signing Mickael Cuisance has revisited the collapse of his move to Leeds United.

Cuisance joined OM from Bayern Munich in the final days of the summer market, but only after a move to Leeds fell through after club medics identified a potential 'future injury'.

Cuisance stated: "I was not afraid to work with (Marcelo) Bielsa, but it never happened. It was not done with Leeds. I still don't know why.

"But so much the better because today it allows me to be at OM. The Champions League was an important element for me. I made the final 8 with Bayern, it made me want to play in it more. The fact that Marseille is playing it made me want to come here."
