Di Meco “a little embarrassed” for young supporters
OM celebrate this Friday the 30th anniversary of their victory in the Champions League against AC Milan (1-0). A great memory for Eric Di Meco, holder in the final, who is waiting for successors to offer new emotions to Marseille supporters.
>> Di Meco’s full statements here
“If we are talked about so much about us, that means that unfortunately the CV has been thin lately, notes the former French international. Didier Deschamps won a French championship title in 2010 and League Cups. I also have a thought for the kids who don’t want to live by proxy. Even if it’s a football city where you pass on the history of the club to your children, when OM went to the final of the Europa League against Atlético (in 2018, editor’s note), the city was set ablaze because all its kids want to experience it themselves. We are a little embarrassed about that. When it’s too much, it can even bother us at some point.”
How OM maintains the link with the victory of May 26, 1993
30 years ago, on May 26, 1993, OM won the Champions League against the great Milan thanks to the header of Basile Boli. This Friday, several celebrations are planned in Marseille to celebrate this coronation.

This was one of the fears of OM leaders. Celebrate 30 years of victory in the Champions League, Saturday May 27 during Marseille-Brest, an evening when OM would no longer be in the race for qualification in C1. The prestigious history of the Olympian club is a source of pride for many, but it is also a burden to bear for those who are trying to put OM back on the path to success. The current third place in Ligue 1 is not ideal, but it already has a very small scent of C1. The party around you may 26 93 will take place in a festive atmosphere. The stadium will be full this Saturday evening for the last match of the season at the Vélodrome, and the winners of this famous OM-Milan in Munich will almost all be in the stands around President Pablo Longoria.
Welcome to our live to follow all the tributes, reactions and memories on this anniversary of the 30th anniversary of OM’s victory in the Champions League final against AC Milan (1-0), May 26, 1993 .
