Beaten by PSG in the Champions Trophy, OM have been chasing a national title since 2012.
Non-existent in the first period, the Marseillais recovered after returning from the locker room.
Even if André Villas-Boas, the Olympian coach, adds a little to the performance of his team.
Enigma to 1,000 euros: How the coach of an amorphous team during a whole half-time can seriously declare that his formation was the best on the field?
Yet this is what André Villas-Boas did not hesitate to swing after the Champions Trophy lost by OM on Wednesday against PSG (2-1).
“It was a balanced game, with few chances.
We're the best team in the box, we don't deserve to lose the game.
I have nothing to say to my players, we were the best team.
The state of mind was impeccable, ”quietly released the Portuguese coach.
Yet OM did not exist or almost in the first period when PSG scored, touched the bar and were denied two offside goals.
Conversely, Marseille did not create any opportunity before waking up after returning from the locker room.
It must be said that the task was not too complicated given the nothingness displayed during the first 45 minutes.
"Of the three games I played against Paris, it was the best"
But in this very average match, Marseille will only really worried PSG at the end of the match with the reduction of the gap from Payet and one last opportunity from Thauvin.
However, to hear Villas-Boas, Marseille achieved a great match.
“The best honor that Paris has given us is their celebration.
We made the game difficult for them.
Of the three games I played against Paris, it was the best, ”insists the Marseille coach.
Two solutions: either Villas-Boas really thinks so, or he drowns the fish to avoid recalling that Marseille has always been chasing a national trophy for nine years.
A long wait which perhaps explains this slight distortion of reality.
