OM: Bring the Coupe de France home, the 2023 goal!

Eliminated from the Champions League and fourth in Ligue 1, OM made a very mixed start to the season. Despite contrasting results, Pablo Longoria has great ambitions and announces Marseille’s objectives for 2023.

After the defeat against Tottenham’s Spurs in the Champions League, OM’s season took a completely different turn. Eliminated from all European competition, the Marseillais will now focus on Ligue 1. But left behind by RC Lens, runners-up to PSG and by Stade Rennais, the OM club is currently on an unfavorable tie to finish on the podium at the end of the season and thus qualify for the next Champions League. Nevertheless, Longoria believes nothing is impossible for Marseille and the club must set themselves a title target for next year. As the World Cup in Qatar begins in a few days, the Spanish leader is already focused on the Coupe de France.

Longoria wants to win the Coupe de France

“We have to try to win the competition. It’s very difficult, but we have an obligation to be as competitive as possible. What makes us live economically is the qualification for European competitions. But winning titles is something everyone can remember. Winning titles allows you to change the mentality of the players » said Pablo Longoria this Tuesday, November 15 at a press conference, about the Coupe de France. Ten times winner of the competition, OM have not won the Coupe de France since 1989 and remain on disappointment and humiliating defeats against amateur clubs in recent years. Longoria hopes this season will be a good one for OM, who have not lifted a trophy in official competition since the Coupe de la Ligue in 2012. Marseille will play their 32nd round of finals on Saturday 7 or Sunday 8 January 2023.
