Ocampos, a 'miracle' of Midas Monchi that celebrates until Messi

The star of Barcelona praises the end of Seville: "His appearance has been extraordinary." Lucas has 7 goals in the last 11 games.


"The appearance of Lucas Ocampos was extraordinary for the good of the group in the Argentine national team." The words are not from anyone, but from the almighty Lionel Messi, star in Barcelona who returned during this stop to the albiceleste and who celebrated as no other another great game of the Sevilla player, who scored the 0-1 in the derby against Betis and he is confirming that 'Midas' Monchi has done it again: the Cadiz sports director turns many of the players he signs into gold.

Ocampos, who has debuted as a cyclone this season with Argentina, adds no less than seven goals in his last 11 games. Five with Sevilla from day six to thirteen of LaLiga and two in the three friendly matches he has played with the albiceleste between the October break and what he takes from November. His contest to the orders of Scaloni was fundamental to tie in Germany, to hit Ecuador and to end up winning the superclassic with Brazil of this Friday in Saudi Arabia.

In Marseille they already regret having let him go last summer for what now seem like a Pyrrhic 14 million euros. It is true that the French team set a more than interesting 2017-18 season, with 16 goals in 53 official matches and a Europa League final, lost against Atlético.

Ocampos, who had arrived in Monaco with barely 18 years of age, from River Plate, signed for the Marseille club in 2015 but was slow to convince his rectors. So much that he lived two assignments in Genoa and Milan. With 25 years, its market value is already placed by the specialized CIES Observatory of Switzerland at between 50 and 70 million euros, and its projection does not seem to stop advancing. Above all, if the one who compliments you in such a tremendous way is Lionel Messi himself.
