Laurent Blanc (Paris Saint-Germain coach)
“It was a great match, but very difficult. I have to admit that Marseille played very well tonight. We managed to lift our game in the final minutes of the first half and wrest back the advantage with two justified penalties. Marseille could have equalised in the second half with a penalty of their own, but Kevin Trapp showed a lot of talent to make the save. We had chances to score a third goal. It was a very tough and now we will savour this victory.”
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Paris Saint-Germain attacker)
“It wasn’t an easy match. We were not disciplined enough. We were behind but we came back with two penalties. We had chances to kill the game off. A win is always important, especially against Marseille. I can’t remember the last time we lost to them. As for my 110th goal, it’s always fantastic to beat a record, but I’m not going to stop now. I want to keep going and do even better. We are living in a great period for the club and we will do everything to continue and keep making history.”
