Valentin Rongier plays down Marseille title talk

In the wake of Marseille’s 3-0 away win over Angers on Friday night, which has sent them top of the table provisionally, midfielder Valentin Rongier sought to play down talk of a potential title challenge against Paris Saint-Germain

“It’s still very early to be talking about competing [with PSG]. What’s sure is that we are only focused on ourselves. For the time being, we’re doing well so we have to continue in that way.”

Last year’s runners-up remain unbeaten in the league, with wing-back Jonathan Clauss notably impressing yesterday evening as the former Lens man notched a goal and two assists.

His manager Igor Tudor would wax lyrical about the French international after the game, calling him an “incredible player”, a “good guy”, and indicating that it was a “pleasure” to be managing him.

Marseille next face Sporting Club in midweek ahead of what promises to be a busy October for all French sides fighting on both domestic and continental fronts.
