Florian Thauvin has said that he could have earned more at Newcastle United than he is currently earning at Marseille.
He also said that Dmitri Payet also took a pay cut to return to Ligue 1 from West Ham United.
Marseille star Florian Thauvin has said that he could have earned more if he would have stuck with Premier League club Newcastle United rather than making a return to Ligue 1. He also added that the same thing goes for his teammate Dmitri Payet, who took a pay cut to return to Marseille from West Ham United.
Speaking to the media as his future at the French outfit hangs in a thread, the French ace said, “My renewal? There has never been an argument between me and the club.”
The player also added, “And about the rumours of a dissatisfaction with my salary, I can say that it is absolutely not true. And I showed it, agreeing to come back here by taking a third of what I was earning [at Newcastle]. The same for Dimitri who would have earned a lot more money by staying at West Ham.”
There has been a dilemma over the player’s future at the club but Thauvin has said that there has never been any argument of any sorts between him and Marseille.
