Gasse: Marseille can bring back some sunshine in the Europa League

The return match of the 1/16 finals with Shakhtar will take place on February 22

Head coach Marcel Jean-Louis Gasset spoke about the team’s mood before the return match of the 1/16 finals Europa League With Miner.

“The players feel a sense of responsibility, they loved their coach, they are very attached to him. But it happens in life that a coach leaves when you have intimacy with him. But what’s most important? It’s tomorrow. We have only one solution: win and qualify.”

“I have no goals. I’m on a hundred day mission. We will try to win as many matches as possible, but this is a special competition. We can bring back some sunshine. We must react. We may need a simpler style of play and then the attitude will do the rest.”

“Regarding a potential penalty shootout, I have a lot to prepare. But when you play for 120 minutes and you need to hit a shot, it doesn’t happen through calm, relaxed observation. You need to be in shape to take penalties. But before the penalty I still have a lot of tasks to do.”

Let us remind you that Gasse was officially appointed as the new head coach of Marseille. The 70-year-old mentor replaced Gennaro Gattuso in this post, who was fired due to unsatisfactory results.

Marseille will play against Shakhtar in the second leg of the Europa League playoffs. Let us remind you that in the first match, which was hosted by the German city of Hamburg, the teams tied (2:2).

The Marseille – Shakhtar match will take place at the Stade de Marseille on February 22. The meeting starts at 22:00 Kyiv time. The fight will be judged by the German referee team led by Tobias Stieler.
