OM, Mandanda: “If the league decides we have to play against Brest, we will play”

At a press conference, Steve Mandanda calmed down about his health condition and commented on the LFP’s decision to keep the meeting despite four cases of Covid-19 at OM.

OM, Villas-Boas: “Impossible to play Ligue 1 title”

“I resumed on Tuesday and I feel very good, good for me. For a week I could not do anything because we have to pay attention to the slightest effort.

Finally we are not decision makers and we adapt to the league’s decisions.
