2017-2018 Season - Europa League - semi-final second leg - Salzbourg 2-1 OM: Rudi Garcia's reaction to the historic qualification to the Europa League final.
Rudi Garcia : «We deserve to go to the final»

"When it's hard to qualify, it's even better, as they say. I'm happy for the players, for my staff, for the Club and Olympique de Marseille. We all deserve to go to the final. Tonight the environment was once again fantastic in the European Cup, because we scored at the end of the match, by a late substitute. I put Rolando in with the hope he’d have the opportunity to score and then he did it. I am delighted for the group and for our supporters, the people of Marseille and all of France — all who started to love this team. They are right to love it because we give everything, we plays as a team, we have character. We will bring the people of Marseille to Lyon for the final and we will do everything to win this trophy, although obviously we will a very good team in Atlético de Madrid.

“If we had been told when we started the Europa League campaign in Ostend, that we would go to the finals we would have signed with both hands, yes. We left a little rubber on the road today as we say. We will quickly recover for Sunday, the match will arrive quickly. We will stay tonight with this feeling as it's pretty good, but then we have to get back to the league because tonight we are a little in the stars. We have not won anything yet to make this season a memorable season, you have to finish top-3 or win the Europa League.

“We heard the fans all the time, they did not give up, as we did not let anything go. They were fantastic, it was beautiful — the unity with our 1,500 supporters at the end. They deserve it too, they make efforts, sacrifices, they follow us and support us. It's the least of all things to have given everything tonight and to give them a final."
