Sampaoli, McCourt, Guendouzi…The wild reactions of the Olympians


The equalizer after additional time for Sang et Or against the Rocher club clearly capsized the Stade Vélodrome in an indescribable atmosphere on Saturday evening. This qualification of OM for the next C1 is necessarily a huge satisfaction for Jorge Sampaoli. “It was hard on the heart. There are a lot of emotions today. I am very happy for the group, the players had an incredible year. We must congratulate them for that, I thank them very much. I’m happy to end in this way, the way the fans were expecting, with OM who had a lot of courage (…) These are some of the most beautiful emotions. My two children were there and it was a terrible emotion, in this stadium. Since my arrival, we have had this desire to give the club back its identity (…) I understood that Lens had scored when the stadium shouted, no one warned me”dropped the Marseille coach at a press conference.

Asked by Canal+Frank McCourt also had an emotional evening. “It’s incredible. Truly unbelievable. I am so happy for the supporters. Jorge (Sampaoli) and Pablo (Longoria) worked like that all year, they worked together. And the players respected them and listened to them and that’s where we are. I’m so happy for the supporters, it’s unbelievable. They are the best supporters, they deserve that. It’s a magical end to the season. OM is back”said the owner of the Marseille club.

Midfielder Mattéo Guendouzi was completely unleashed at the final whistle. “We deserve this 2nd place, we have occupied it for a very long time this season. I think it’s the best memory you can have. The season is wonderful. Next year we will be even better,” dropped the French international before praising the work of Jorge Sampaoli.
