"Absolutely, a passage in Marseille we do not forget! When I discuss today with friends or that I go to football with my boy, of office one speaks to me about Marseilles, of the time, how it was… The supporters, it is the soul. "
Still in the columns of the local daily, he adds that the supporters of OM also returned the favor to him afterwards: “For the anecdote, I arrived once to eat at the restaurant and the restaurant owner did not even want that. I pay, all because he was proud. He said to me: "You gave me so much happiness! I don't want you to pay, you don't even realize what you can give to a supporter!" It really is a family. OM is part of their daily life. When the results and the benefits are there, you really have a special place in your heart. And that really marked me in Marseille. "
