Beautiful or ugly", Marseille coach Gennaro Gattuso only wanted to remember the victory on Sunday against Rennes (2-0) at the end of a rather average performance. "Today, the important thing was to win, whether it's beautiful or ugly. It's the first time this season that we've won two games in a row and we shouldn't ask ourselves if the victory was good or ugly," said the Italian coach. "I'd rather be ugly and win games like that. We need to move up the rankings," he added.

The former Milan man then admitted that his team's first half had been difficult, with "not pressing properly, fatigue, fear". "It happens when you play every three days. We don't train much, we do more video than fieldwork. There's not a lot of energy and you could see that against Rennes as well," Gattuso said.
The second half was a little better, but not exceptional. It was a very difficult game overall. But at the end of the first half, I saw a team that was very preoccupied, like they were losing 3-0. I'm happy with how they reacted," said the OM coach.
