OM: the crazy joy of Marseille President Pablo Longoria after the victory against Angers


The Spaniard didn't really hold back his joy after Marseille's last goal, which gave his club a serious advantage in the Li race.

It is not because the bays of the Vélodrome are desperately empty this season that there is no show in the stands when OM are on the ground. This Sunday evening, in stoppage time, while Olympique de Marseille was held in check 2-2 against Angers, a penalty was awarded to the Phocéens for a fault by the SCO defender, Romain Thomas on Ahmadou Bamba Dieng. Arkadiusz Milik, already author of a double during this match then grabs the ball to shoot it. The Polish international opens his left foot and takes the Angevin goalkeeper Paul Bernardoni on the wrong foot. Hats off. 3-2 for OM. A success

in extremis

in the 95th minute, combined with the defeats of Rennes and Lens. Marseille holds 5th place and is getting closer to qualifying in the Europa League.

The magic of @ Ligue1UberEats 🔥⚽️ #OMSCO

It did not take more to switch literally and figuratively Pablo Longoria, the young president of Olympique de Marseille. He celebrated this goal by forgetting the half-measure in the locker room, hopping in the stand and then wallowing in his seat, his arms raised in the sky. The Spaniard, recently appointed to head the OM management board in place of Jacques-Henri Eyraud, has undoubtedly experienced one of his most beautiful emotions since he took the helm. He who said he liked "watching the matches in silence, alone, to stay focused on the game" this Sunday evening showed a whole different side of his personality, more expansive. It will probably be one of the images of this 37th day of Ligue 1, maybe even of this season.
