Di Meco confesses to 1993 coronation

The supporters of Olympique de Marseille celebrate this Friday the thirty years of the victory in the final of the Champions League against AC Milan (1-0).

Eric Di Meco

Even if the youngest did not know this famous evening of May 26, 1993 in Munich, several generations will never forget the angry head of Basile Boli catapulted into the goals of the Italian club just before half-time of this meeting, the decisive saves by Fabien Barthez in key moments then the moment when Didier Deschamps lifted the “big-eared cup” at the end of a memorable evening. Thirty years later, the memories remain intact for those who carry OM in their hearts.

The lucid observation of Di Meco

Holder in the final against the Rossoneri, Éric Di Meco is still very marked by this historic evening for French football but regrets the meager record of OM since this victory in the Champions League. “If we are talked about so much, it means that unfortunately the CV has been thin lately. Didier Deschamps won a French championship title in 2010 and League Cups”confided the former French international on RMC.

A certain “embarrassment” for the youngest

Di Meco also admits to feeling a certain uneasiness in relation to the younger generations who only ask to vibrate again in the years to come. “I also have a thought for the kids who don’t want to live by proxy. Even if it’s a football city where you pass on the club’s history to your children, when OM went to the Europa League final against Atlético, the city was set on fire because all its kids want to experience it themselves”, he continued. In the meantime, the Olympian club will try to find the Champions League next season. OM will host Brest this Saturday at the Stade Vélodrome (9 p.m.) as part of the 37e Ligue 1 day.
