Baup calm over Marseille start

Marseille are paying little attention to their perfect start to

the season, according to coach Elie Baup.

OM have won all five of their Ligue 1 games so far – a victory

at Nancy on Sunday night the latest – and they sit at the top of

the standings as a result.

Baup has overseen the dramatic change in fortunes following the

mediocrity of Didier Deschamps’ last season in charge, but the new

man says he is not looking at the table.

“We haven’t talked about the five wins,” he told www.ligue1.com.

“We’re aware that we’re picking up points which are going to be

useful for us later on.”

Jordan Ayew’s goal secured Sunday night’s 1-0 win which had not

looked like coming as Andre-Pierre Gignac squandered chance after

chance in front of goal.

“We played superbly in the first half and used the ball really

well,” Baup said.

“I’m very pleased for the players who went looking for the

points and certainly didn’t steal them. We deserved them.”
