Deschamps issues rallying cry
Marseille coach Didier Deschamps insists his players will fight right to the end of the season to try and regain respect for the club.
L'OM are currently on one of the worst runs in the club's history and are without a Ligue 1 win in 12 matches. Add to that their Champions League exit and defeat in the Coupe de France to minnows Quevilly, and it is clear that all is not well at the club. Deschamps will take his men to Lorient on Friday night to try and finally put an end to the winless streak but it remains open to debate as to whether he will still be in charge next season. The former Chelsea midfielder pulled no punches in his assessment of what has gone wrong this season, saying: "In this kind of situation, you can say all sorts of different things. But we're in the position that we're in because there are deficiencies in our game." And the former Monaco chief insists that his players will give their all throughout the rest of the campaign. "We have five matches left to play, and in a position like ours, we need points," he added. "We have to make sure that our performances reflect respect for the club and for the shirt that we wear."
