Despite the very poor dynamics of OM in Ligue 1, interim Olympian coach Nasser Larguet thinks his team is still able to go for the Top 5 and therefore European qualification at the end of the season.
Nasser Larguet is a calm, lucid man who knows that his time on the Olympian bench is numbered. But that does not prevent the interim coach of OM, in office until management finds a successor to André Villas-Boas, from being ambitious. Despite the very poor Marseille dynamics in the league, the technician estimated this Friday his team capable of saving the furniture by spring.
“With the two games late, if we do not mortgage these six points, I would say that we can get closer to the first five, he observed at a press conference. To be in the lead is not possible , you have to be logical, but getting closer to the Top 5 is quite feasible with this group “.
End the black series
In other words, Larguet thinks that OM can still win a qualification for the Europa League. One way to keep the troops motivated? Not only, insofar as Marseille are only five points behind 5th, Rennes, who played one more game. Monaco, 4th, however, has a 15-point lead and no longer seems to be catching up.
Unable to win any of their last six L1 games, OM will try to revive Sunday night in Bordeaux. Where he has not won since the fall of 1977. “I disregard these 43 years, slipped Larguet. But we are still in the hard when it comes to the quality of the game. We need a victory to build, this n ‘was not exceptional at Auxerre (Wednesday in the Cup, editor’s note), which caused us a lot of problems with his team 2. We must regain control of the game. ” And if Marseille succeeds, the results should follow.
