Disappointed Deschamps hails Benfica

Published: Thursday 18 March 2010, 23.04CET
Olympique de Marseille coach Didier Deschamps was full of praise for the SL Benfica side that eliminated his team from the UEFA Europa League round of 16 with a 2-1 win at the Stade Vélodrome. "They are great in all positions," Deschamps said. "We thought we held firm after scoring but they were better in the second half. The wind made things difficult. Take their players one by one, they are among the best teams in the competition. I'm not surprised, just disappointed."
