Marseille coach Eric Gerets was left to content himself with a place in the UEFA Cup after the humiliating 4-0 defeat to Liverpool in the make-or-break Champions League Group A decider.

OM failed to recover from conceding two goals in the opening 11 minutes and were embarrassed in front of their own supporters, who had flocked to the Stade Velodrome expecting to witness a seventh straight home win over English opposition in European competition.

"The best two teams in the group have qualified for the last 16," admitted Gerets. "At least we still have the opportunity to play in European competition. So I am happy about that."
