Olympique de Marseille fell from above, on Wednesday, by being taken out of the Coupe de France by Annecy. The Marseillais may have opened the scoring and then snatched the penalty shootout miraculously, OM were finally eliminated on penalties (2-2, 7 pens to 6). An elimination that Igor Tudor had difficulty explaining at the end of the meeting.
“It is a great disappointment, a great sadness. We are coming out of a competition where we eliminated PSG and Rennes, it’s madness. Apart from a few details, I’m having a little trouble explaining this at the moment, he said after the meeting. There is no break, just great sadness. I don’t think the players underestimated the opponent. Annecy played a great match, at a level I never imagined for an L2 team. »
“On our side, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong, he continued. Our flaws came out. Taking two goals at home is not justifiable. And in front, we couldn’t tell the difference. They defended themselves tooth and nail, we had a post, chances, a missed penalty… They gave their all and they succeeded. Clearly, when you go out against an L2, it’s because you did badly. We believed in it, we are disappointed. »
