Addressed to Alexis? The criticism of the DT of Marseille after the elimination of the Champions League

Tottenham buried the aspirations of Olympic Marseille in European competitions after prevailing in the last minute of the game with a goal from Pierre-Emile Højbjerg. And it is that the 2-1 of the English in the Velodrome meant the elimination of the French cast from the Champions League and also lose the possibility of playing in the Europa League.

The French team needed the victory to advance to the round of 16, so they went all out on the attack, but on the last play they suffered a counterattack that surprised them badly and ended in the rival goal.

After the meeting, the coach Igor Tudor blamed his forwards, including Alexis Sanchez, for what happened. This is because, as he revealed, the order was never to launch the attack, but to protect the result.

“In the last five minutes there was a lot of confusion. The players wanted to play fast and go forward, we were tired. The advice was to be there, not go with so many players on offense, but they wanted to score.” he pointed.

Now Olympique de Marseille only has to focus on Ligue 1, where they are in fifth position, 11 points behind the leader PSG. Their next match will be against olympique de lyon on Sunday, November 6 at 4:45 p.m.
