2017-2018 Season – Ligue 1 – Matchday 28 – OM 1-1 Nantes : OM coach Rudi Garcia shares his thoughts following Sunday's draw at the Orange Velodrome against FC Nantes (1-1).

"The players did not let go. They pushed to the end. We were 11 in the box with Steve Mandanda on that final corner kick, searching for the goal to tie. We managed to do it."

"It was a difficult match because we allowed Nantes to score in the first 20 minutes, then to reinforce the strategy they had came in with: to destroy, defend and play on set pieces. They did that rather well."

"On our side, we had a very good second period. We finally created some chances by shooting 17 times. It must be a record. The downside for us was, in the first period, we were too slow in the beginning of the match. We missed runs and took no shots on goal, so we could not equalize in the first period."

"On the psychological level, this remains a point won. We remain five points ahead of Lyon. Unfortunately, we lose two points on Monaco, in the chase for second. There are still 10 matches left and things can still happen. It's up to us to recover, we have four matches coming quickly, two in the Europa League, two in the league. It is imperative that we draw on all our remaining strengths to make the best possible results."
