Olympique de Marseille saw their manager André Villas-Boas handed in his resignation after a turmoil last few days for OM. Paris Saint-Germain will be heading to the Orange Vélodrome for the third installment of Le Classique.
Ahead of the matchup, Marseille interim manager Nasser Larguet spoke to the media, discussing the significance of the rivalry for his side. Larguet’s tone for the fixture is a different one from Villas-Boas, who would try and downplay the derby between the two biggest clubs in France.
“There won’t be a big speech; it’s our Ligue 1 Champions League. We have a team that is playful and is on goal with Germain, who gives for Alvaro and Milik. I want to find that against Paris,” Larguet said. “The players were shaken up, there were some pretty hard events, but I feel at home a great motivation, not only for PSG but for the matches of the coming weeks.”
