Olympique de Marseille striker Loic Remy admits that his side tried its best as the visitors bowed out of the Champions League at the quarterfinal stage, losing 2-0 to Bayern Munich, which sealed a 4-0 aggregate success for the Bundesliga side.
Marseille squandered a goalscoring chance early on through Jeremy Morel, before Ivica Olic opened the scoring with the very next attack.
Toni Kroos rattled the post for Jupp Heynckes' side before the Croatia international netted his second goal six minutes before halftime to effectively seal the tie.
Remy also had chances to put Didier Deschamps' men ahead at the Allianz Arena, though he, along with Stephane Mbia failed to seriously trouble Manuel Neuer, as the Ligue 1 side suffered elimination from the Champions League.
However, the 25-year-old striker was quick to offer his thoughts on the defeat, and remained adamant that his side can turn around a testing season.
"We played against a very big team, we can measure now the path that is left to achieve. We tried our best, we fought, but they [Bayern] are too good." the striker told TF1 after the match. "We have now got to hold our heads high in the league and we still have the League Cup [final against Lyon on April 14]. We'll see.
"It is a very difficult season but we'll fight for our remaining objectives."
Marseille faces archrival Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 on Sunday, before facing leaders Montpellier in a week. Bayern Munich resumes its title charge against Augsburg at the weekend.
