Find out what OL president Jean-Michel Aulas had to say after his club finished fifth in Ligue 1 and qualified for the Europa League next season:

"We got the result we needed because we did what we needed tto do. The coaching staff stuck together, despite the announcement that Rémi Garde would be leaving. The players responded. Rémi was the man behind this season. We qualified for an 18th European season in a row, but we did it tough. It's fantastic. It was a very hostile environment. It shows how strong we are, with our 2,000 travelling supporters. We are very happy with the result but also for what it means for the future. We have a solid foundation. We have to be well organised. We are on track to return to the very top. That's my objective. This fifth place finish is only a step on our way to the summits and the arrival of our Grand Stade."
