Former Marseille goalkeeper Pascal Olmeta pulled now punches when he discussed the club’s dismal return to the Champions’ League, with OM sitting bottom of their group on 0 points after three matches.
“It pisses me off, I turned off before the end. It is not possible! Watching these matches gives me a stomach ache. OM, we are Europe, we are not Guingamp! I feel the same as Eric Di Meco, I love this club so I criticise it. I was watching it via video with my son who is in the AS Monaco youth academy, and I felt his disappointment when Dimitri (Payet) missed the penalty. It hurt me. The worst thing is when you see the youngsters disappointed when certain players who have lost 3-0 are still smiling. It makes me want to throw punches… And then, when you are a professional, it is not normal to weigh 100kg, that is the equivalent of not loving your club.”
