The Marseille coach, outclassed (3-0) in Porto on Tuesday night in the Champions League - his 12th consecutive defeat in the competition, a sad record equaled -, lamented the many mistakes made by his troops, and agreed that the the club's image was tarnished on the European scene.
Olympique de Marseille sank again Tuesday night in the Champions League.
The Phocéens have indeed been outclassed in Porto (3-0), their third defeat in as many games in the competition this year.
Above all, OM recorded their 12th consecutive defeat in the most prestigious of European competitions, the worst series in history equaled.
"We're here and we're doing shit," said coach André Villas-Boas in a press conference after the match, disappointed.
"We took goals because we give them to the opponents"
Usually so civilized, André Villas-Boas therefore cracked at the end of a trying evening. His team was below everything, and especially the event.
Three matches, three defeats, still no goal scored, and desperate executive players, like Payet, author of a monumental failure on a penalty.
If this OM is generous, it is only for his opponents, which puts the Marseille coach beside him.
"We took defeats and goals, because we give them to opponents, it's too easy for them," he complained.
"And all at the start of the match. If that is enough in Ligue 1, in the Champions League, it is not enough."
The last symbol of this nightmare that will leave traces, this pitiful record equaled.
A 12th defeat in a row in the Champions League, therefore.
OM now shares the historic European donkey cap with Anderlecht.
Before probably styling it alone in 3 weeks if it does not radically question itself.
