“I have never seen such proof of fair play in such a competitive context. Top level football is like that, competitive. I wanted to salute his sense of honesty. A high level feeling. Sincerely with our urgency to win, I have never seen a move like Gurbanov’s. And honestly, I don’t know if in his place, I would have accepted that the goal be canceled. I probably would have celebrated it. For me, it’s a lesson. » Jorge Sampaoli – Marseille Football Club
