But guys, we have just come from a very difficult season, we have changed coaches four times. Two weeks ago, it was a disaster. It’s good, we win, we are better and better, but we have to keep our feet on the ground, there are three games left before the truce (…) We think about these three games, maybe it will change our season,” said the Marseille goalkeeper in the mixed zone.

Three important games before the truce

One thing is certain, the Spanish doorman is already turned to the next match scheduled for Sunday at the Vélodrome in Ligue 1. “You have to think about Nantes, because you know how OM is, don’t you? If we lose to Nantes, what are we going to say next? But as I told you, I’m happy for the team, I’m also happy for the president, I’m happy for the supporters. Thank you to all the children who came today, because it was beautiful, “he concluded.
