Lyon's president spoke to OLTV after Saturday's 2-0 win over Nantes at Groupama Stadium.

It 's an extremely difficult and important race. Each match brings us closer to achieving a wonderful goal. By winning all our matches, we are getting closer to second place. You have to enjoy and savor this. Bruno (Genesio) and the players deserve congratulations. They played a high-quality match, creating plenty of opportunities. Anthony (Lopes) was able to show class today after the defamatory remarks that Marseilles' president made against him. My responsibility is to defend the institution and the players. It was hard for Antho psychologically, but he played a great match. The important thing is to finish second. Everything is possible. We had to win without conceding a goal and we did it in front of 50,000 fans who were great from start to finish. The OL family is united, we don't understand the statements of the President of OM and this incitement to hatred. I wish for Marseille to play the [Europa League] final at Groupama Stadium, on the condition that their leaders punish and warn those who wish to damage the stadium. As for Leo Dubois, I trust in his talent and his integrity. He has the human and technical qualities to play here.
