Didier Deschamps has expressed his delight at guiding Olympique de Marseille to this season's Coupe de la Ligue after a 1-0 victory over Olympique Lyonnais on Saturday.

The French giants needed a goal in extra time to hand the former France and Juventus midfielder his sixth trophy in just three years at the helm of the club, and he was quick to highlight the achievement after commending his players and staff members for their contributions.

"All title wins are beautiful, as they are difficult to achieve. This is the sixth [we have won] in three years," he said after the match according to AFP.

"For a club that had not won anything for 17 years, it is something to be proud of. The credit goes mostly to the players, but I also want to associate my staff with the victory.

"This is a great source of pride for me, even if it does not change the fact it has been a difficult season in Ligue 1."

Brandao again proved decisive for Marseille after following up his goal to dump Inter out of the Champions League in March with the winner against Lyon on Saturday, and Deschamps was full of praise for the Brazilian striker.

"It's crazy, what a bargain he has been," he noted. "He has above average technical qualities, but I have been more impressed with his mental strength.

"I've trusted him and he has scored some important goals."

Deschamps then refused to answer questions on his future at Stade Velodrome, but vowed to inform the media of his decision once the season reaches its conclusion.

"Let me enjoy this moment of happiness, these days have been rare lately," stated Deschamps.

"The season ends on May 21 and I will not answer any questions about my future until then. For now, I want to enjoy this win with my family.
