PSG boss delighted with win over rivals Marseille

PSG claimed a 2-1 victory over their rivals in Ligue 1.

“I’m super happy. It really is a huge satisfaction,” Kombouare told L’Equipe after the match.

“It is great to win because it has been a while since we got to enjoy a home victory.

“Against Marseille, it makes it a lot more fun. It is an enormous pride in winning this match because we were handed two lessons last season.

“We knew that to beat the defending champions, we needed a strong PSG side. We needed to play at a fast pace, and this put Marseille in difficulty. We had a great first-half against an opponent who forced us to play better, but then we rallied after conceding a goal, and we were very solid.

“It was a well-deserved victory.

“I expected the side to win because we have had two draws and a loss in our last three matches. Also beating Marseille for the first time since 2004 also gives me great pressure. Brating Marseille is a great gift to our fans, and I am proud of my players tonight.”
