The five grew up in the Paris region and found themselves on the front lines of Ligue 1’s “classic” event. Facing Paris Saint-Germain this Sunday, William Saliba, Amin Harit, Matteo Guandouzzi, Cédric Bacambu and Pep Guay will all wear the colors of the Olympique de Marseille yet. His past should play a part in his motivation for the upcoming game. At least that’s what his teammate Valentin Rongier thinks when he is asked about it at a press conference.

“We have to ask him questions, the midfielder hesitated at first. I think we are all 200% motivated for this match, because it will be three points to take like another league match. I feel fine because it is Because they come to the Paris area that they don’t want people to think they have PSG on their mind. They want to show even more than others that they are Marseille and are proud to be Marseille.”

The meeting is clearly very important to the Folkens, who would be deprived of their supporters, banned from traveling for the meeting. Apart from the historical animosity between the two clubs, Jorge Sampaoli’s players are still fighting for a place in the Champions League. “We dropped points against teams where we could have won massively, recalled Rongier. Now we don’t feel sorry, we see what comes, and we focus on our place.”

A win for OM could also stun PSG into a French Champions Trophy victory that seems to have been achieved, even though Marseille remain 9 points behind the leaders. “It’s a big challenge, laughed Rongier, who doesn’t fully believe in it. We won’t play to delay his title, but just for his second place.”
