Deschamps hails 'beautiful' cup win
Didier Deschamps has revealed his delight after his Marseille side beat Lyon 1-0 on Saturday to lift the Coupe de le Ligue.
L'OM went into the final as the underdogs after a poor recent run of form but, in a cagey affair, Brazilian striker Brandao scored in extra time to hand his side the win and give Deschamps his sixth trophy in just three seasons at the club.
After the match, the manager was full of praise for his players and thanked them for raising their game after such a difficult season in the league.
"All title wins are beautiful, as they are difficult to achieve," he said after the match. "The credit goes mostly to the players".
"This is a great source of pride for me, even if it does not change the fact it has been a difficult season in Ligue 1."
