Present in Birtz for the preparation phase before the 2016 Euro with Team France, the former forward for the OM, André-Pierre Gignac, expressed his thoughts on the final of the French Cup between the OM and the PSG.

"I hope they will do it. I was very disappointed throughout the season, but the OM can save its season. Thus, if they do it against Paris as well, it would be extraordinary. For the fans, the season was not easy to live with. I felt a lot of sadness because this is a club that will remain engraved upon me. When you are born in this region, it does not leave you for the rest of your life. And in addition, being a player for the club, it is something extraordinary. I hope that they will do it because there is an entire town of supporters behind them that are making the journey... I know how it is between OM-PSG. I hope they will do it and I am sending them all my positive energy with all my strength."
