Before returning to the Europa League with a trip to Amsterdam on Thursday, OM were not reassured yesterday by conceding a sad draw against Toulouse (0-0) at the Vélodrome stadium. The Olympians' lackluster performance particularly disappointed their supporters who did not hide their dissatisfaction at the end of the match by directly calling on the players. Like the scenes seen in Lyon before the truce following the debacle suffered in front of PSG (1-4), the Marseille corners rumbled before briefly applauding Marcelino's group.
After a bronca heard at the final whistle, “Wet the jersey or get lost” were chanted while Marseille, certainly disappointing, remains undefeated 4th in Ligue 1, two points behind the Monegasque leader. “They want more. It's normal for the supporters to be demanding of us, said captain Valentin Rongier on Prime Video. They know there are important deadlines coming up. They want good results, home victories, but so do we. We have to pull in the same direction. They show their annoyance because it's been two home games where we have to do better. It's normal that they are demanding of us, because we have a quality group. But there really aren’t any cheaters in this group and I think it shows.”
Already under pressure, OM begins a crucial week with the focus on the Classic on the PSG pitch next Sunday three days after the duel against Ajax on the first day of the C3 group stage.
