The OL president spoke to OLTV after Lyon's elimination from the Coupe de France.

Jean-Michel Aulas

"We were up against a strong Marseille side, who couldn't afford to lose in a near-packed out stadium and at a time when they're experiencing a huge resurgence. We played a good match and held out well. We were like warriors, and that augurs well for Sunday's derby. We also created some excellent chances. I congratulated the players on their performance. We still have the Europa League and the league to contest. We need to keep our hopes up in Ligue 1 as we have a match in hand. So our objective is to get back on track and do well in the match against Saint-Etienne. You have to know how to remain cool-headed and positive and not get caught up in superficial feelings. It was a very high-level battle tonight and the better team on the night won the match. Perhaps it's a blessing in disguise for the remainder of the season."
