Pau Lopez : “I haven’t seen a better team than Marseille this season.”

Olympique de Marseille’s Spanish goalkeeper Pau Lopez (28) heaped praise on his team, who are currently sitting third in the Ligue 1 standings. During a press conference next to Marseille coach Igor Tudor, the former Tottenham Hotspur shot-stopper stated he has not “seen a better team than us this season,” in a press conference transcribed by Le Phocéen.

He added, “Last season, I played games where our opponents were strong, better than us, but this year, I don’t have this feeling anymore. We’ll see if we manage to clinch the second spot for I believe our momentum is good and the group is feeling fine.”

Marseille certainly bounced back after a bad string of results saw them crash out of the Champions League and fall out of the Ligue 1 podium places. Now, Marseille record four Ligue 1 wins on the bounce and are only four points behind second-placed RC Lens. Unlike Rennes (4th) and Monaco (5th), OM won’t waste freshness and energy in European competition this spring, which might prove crucial in allowing them to finish on a high and qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Tudor’s side face relegation-battlers Troyes this Wednesday in Ligue 1 gameweek 18. Newly-signed Ruslan Malinovskyi (29) may be available if he is registered ahead of the deadline.
