“Maybe defensively we are a bit more stable, a bit more serene now and with our offensive quality, we can win games. We know we have all these players to make something special, but it is a collective effort.
“I knew that this would be a difficult game. It was the first home Champions League game for Marseille, a passionate crowd and opponents who are a good side. Marseille can beat anyone, especially at home.
“It was important for us not to give the first goal away. Marseille had an excellent first half, while we were a bit timid. In the second half, they dropped and we took advantage of that. Overall, it was a victory linked with patience and experience. To start with three points is very positive.”
