Villas-Boas: "We were the best team"


The Marseille coach believes that his team “did not deserve to lose” Wednesday, during the Champions Trophy against PSG.

At the Félix-Bollaert stadium

The game

: “It was a balanced game with few chances on both sides.

I think we're the best team in the box today.

We do not deserve to lose this match ... Unfortunately, the second Parisian goal comes a little against the course of the game. They made the difference in the only moment when our defensive line was not able to put (Mauro ) Icardi offside ... But I think we controlled the whole first period, the second half was good, we were good on the physical aspect, technique, intensity and tactics .

I have no complaints with my players.

We were the best team.

Unfortunately we take this second goal, without having too much time to respond (Neymar penalty in the 85th minute, editor's note).

In all cases, we came back to 2-1.

Flo (Thauvin) had a good chance at the end but it was a difficult technical move to achieve.

The state of mind was beyond reproach.

Unfortunately we lose… Congratulations to Paris.

The best honor that Paris gives us is the party they had ... We offered them a difficult game, hard for them.

They were happy. ”

(NB: at the microphone of Téléfoot, "AVB" added that PSG had celebrated this title "as if they had won the Champions League")



- Tops / Flops PSG-Marseille: Icardi is back in force, Mbappé less fierce

Steve Mandanda, released at half-time

: “We will analyze, it may be a thigh injury, we will see… There is little time before the match against Nîmes (Saturday, editor's note).

There is a doubt. ”

"It's not because we played a good game that we will necessarily be excellent afterwards"

Use the content to move forward

: “If it will be useful for the future?

Always difficult to say… We must first recover physically.

The next match is scheduled for Saturday at 5 p.m.

There may be rotations.

I have to think about this game.

It is not because we played a good game that we will necessarily be excellent afterwards.

Every game is different.

But everyone showed a good state of mind.

I really liked the performance of the players, including those who returned, like Pol (Lirola), (Morgan) Sanson… We'll see for the rest.

Of the three matches I played against Paris, it's the best. ”

Newcomer Pol Lirola

: “Very good starter.

He has qualities a little similar to Bouna (Sarr, gone to Bayern Munich, editor's note), he is a winger converted to a full back, he gives a lot of offensive projections.

It has a good quality of center.

And that's what he did.

He brought depth to the team right away to create two-on-one situations on the side.

Very happy.

It was his first entry, his first minutes, it was important to him. "

"Icardi, he's a master in the penalty area"

PSG more killer in front

: "I will not repeat myself, but there is a significant difference in investment between the two clubs ... We can not forget it.

They have the individual quality to make the difference in small details.

Icardi is a master in the penalty area.

For us, unfortunately, there is the post which gives him the ball… He had already done it against us in the 4-0 (first leg in L1 last season, note).

We started with Dimitri Payet in false 9. Nemanja (Radonjic) started the second half as a striker, and Dario (Benedetto) took his place afterwards.

The latter was well, very present.

It'll help him find confidence, it's good for us.

The little details made the difference.

Icardi had a good game today. ”



- Logical winner of OM, PSG offers a first trophy to Pochettino


: “We can be the best team and lose a game… Sometimes it's like that.

Unfortunately, it is a defeat which is synonymous with a trophy for PSG.

I don't think we deserve to lose this game.

We were very good.

Normally, with such a balanced game, we could have gone to penalties, or even more, because there were few chances. ”

Dimitri Payet

: “He was in the same role as against City.

Then, when he's at false 9, he's between the lines and he helps speed up the game. A good game.

And then he came back to the left.

He scored his goal.

It's his first 90-minute game since the start of the year.

I hope he will be fit for Nîmes.

We will see how he is physically and we will make the best decision. "

Alvaro Gonzalez tense at the entrance of Neymar

: “No, I don't think so.

OM are tough and not PSG… I spoke to the referee at the end.

Normally when you stop a counterattack with a foul, it's yellow.

We were warned and not PSG.

There is a difference in treatment.

I have nothing to add..."

"It will be financial chaos for all the clubs"

TV rights

: “The situation is so pathetic that there is nothing to say.

France is one of the largest economies in the world.

With a guy buying the rights and going out after three, four months so easily legally, it's amazing.

I don't know how we got to this point… Mr. Saada (chairman of the board of the Canal + group, editor's note) spoke (in an interview with

Le Figaro

), he is playing his game. switch.

It will be financial chaos for all clubs.

The clubs need to set up with the League.

I don't know if it's legally possible or not.

Like that, it's impossible to continue.

Except Paris of course, which operates with losses every year.

For the others.

It will be hard for the future.

(...) For one of the most important championships in Europe, it's incredible. "
