Abedi Ayew Pele played an enigmatic role in leading OM to win the champions league in 1993 at the expense of AC Milan.
“I was very young; I was above three years but my father has narrated the event to me and this has stuck in my memory,” Andre told Marseille’s official website. “He also talked a lot about the 1991 final and this shows that the OM is a historical and legendary club,” he added.
Today, May 26 is exactly two decades since Olympique Marseille achieved that success.
Abedi Pele’s cross was headed into the net by Basile Boli with just two minutes left to the end of the first half and it proved to be the match winner.
