Jorge Sampaoli believes OM injured by arbitration against OL

“Do you think you were wronged by the refereeing?
Yes because before this error, we were present, I think we had control but this situation has changed everything and we cannot go back on it. It bothers me because we were better than them before the Lyon goal which changed everything. We then tried to come back but this goal really changed everything.

How are you going to remobilize your team for Thursday and the semi-final against Feyenoord?
I repeat, the team was pretty good after a long trip and after having had very little time to prepare for this meeting. We even created seven goalscoring opportunities in the first half. Who am I to ask those who have the power to judge to have made their decisions? They assume.

“They (the Lyonnais) had a good game beyond the refereeing errors”

We feel upset…
Yes, disappointment is really the word. Honestly, these decisions sadden me, this situation is very painful for us to bear but we cannot change that. Now, heading to Thursday, with a very important match, we will continue to move forward but we have already had this kind of situation against Paris. At some point, you have to unify the criteria so that the decisions are all the same.

How did you react to the tactics proposed by Lyon, which evolved together and in transition?
The first goal comes a bit like that and when we looked for a draw, we necessarily took more risks, we lost balls and it was easier for them with their game in transition. We have to improve that, we are trying to have control. But it must also be said that they have good footballers, they had a good match beyond the refereeing errors that we have already talked about. »
