And in this area, Pascal Olmeta has done a lot. On the RMC antenna, the former OM goalkeeper revealed how he stole the Champions League trophy after the 1993 victory!
“Just a week before the 1993 Champions League final, I warmed up with him (Bernard Tapie), we were on the verge of getting our hands on it. I find myself replacing, and I have to leave the day before the final in the supporters’ plane. I didn’t even sleep in the same hotel as the other players. When we get back to Marseille, we celebrate, and the first player to have the cup is me. And I went to Corsica with it. A week later, Jean-Pierre Bernès calls me and says: “We should bring back the cup”. I say, “You know what? When I cash in my match bonus, I’ll bring the cup back.” And thanks to that, I touched her. Otherwise, I am sure that Mr. Tapie would not have paid it to me, ”said Olmeta with a smile.
