After OL's defeat against Bayern Munich in the semifinal of the Champions League (0-3), OL's sporting director, Juninho, looked back on the match.
“We are all sad. Losing a Champions League semifinal is tough. Despite everything, we come out with our heads held high and I'm proud of my players, my staff and the work we've accomplished. We had a plan that we stuck to, but to beat a team of this level, you have to take your chances and be successful. If we had managed to score on one of our first two chances, maybe the result would have been different. Bayern had not started well but things were going very quickly from their point of view. This club is fortunate to have individuals who can make something from nothing. I think we did the right thing. Now we have to rest but get straight to work for the resumption of Ligue 1. We are also very sad because we know that we will not play in Europe Cup next season. I want to thank all the supporters for their tremendous support. We felt a very strong energy and excitement coming from them. Now I wish PSG good luck and wish them a very good game in order to prove that Ligue 1 is a good league. Today a team has been created and that is what will allow us to return to this competition as quickly as possible. It's Ligue 1 that will allow us to play in the Champions League so we owe it to ourselves to have the same motivation and the same respect when playing Nimes as when playing Bayern. We have a base and we have to build from it, even if there is a risk of departures when we see the level that some of our players have shown in Lisbon. "
