Kaboré aims high with OM
” My goal for the team is to finish as champions and go as far as possible in the Champions League. Three years ago, when I went to the gyms, I put on the Champions League anthem to motivate me. My personal goal? Play the most matches and help the team reach the highest level “, has indicated Kabore in his first interview given to the official website of theOM. And it must be said that the Burkinabe international already had his connections to the club…
OM, a family story among the Kaboré
Indeed, he is none other than the cousin of Charles Kaboreplayer of theOM between 2008 and 2013, and he drops a funny anecdote on this subject: “ Olympique de Marseille is a very big club for me. When I was little, Uncle Charlie (Charles Kaboré) showed us photos and gave us balls to play with, so we only knew OM. It really makes me happy, it’s a dream come true. We went to cybers to watch OM matches “, continues Issa Kabore. A transmission of passion which therefore made the business of Pablo Longoria on the transfer window.
But there is no question of landing with privileged status, and the former player of Troyes displays great ambitions for its history with theOM : “ I come to bring all my knowledge, everything I’ve learned since childhood at OM so that we can reach the top level. I adapt very quickly, I give my all so that the team can obtain the best results. I think we have a very, very good team with great players and for a young person like me, it’s nice to be associated with his names to gain experience. “, noted Kabore. That is clear.
