Season 2015-16 - League 1 - 37th day - OM 1-0 Reims: the reaction of the marseille manager, Frank Passi, following his team's victory against the Stade of Reims.

- The OM finally won at home after eight months without a victory at home...
"It's one more step. It could have been a big step if we had capitalized on the chances in the first period. Count them: 6, 7, 8...and no goals. We had our backs against the wall and this season, every time that was the case, the players always knew how to respond."

- It's a good way to prepare for the cup of France final in fifteen days...
"There will be something at stake in the last championship game because the players' confidence comes and goes. We will have to be well-prepared for the trip to Troyes in order to replenish our confidence for the final on May 21st."

- Since our arrival at the head of the team, the OM has allowed only one goal...
"We get very few goals and we create many chances. This confidence must translate into goals."

- Do you expect to keep players in Troyes in view of the final?
"It is impossible to retain certain players but with one game per week, the players have time to recuperate. I think about it but it's not currently an issue.

- The wind seems to have shifted, the team is producing more plays...
"Yes, we see more interesting plays but unless we capitalize on them, we cannot boost our confidence. There was room to score more and sooner. I'm not forgetting the missed opportunities but had we capitalized on our first chances, there could have been fireworks during the second half-time."
