“How do you explain your end of series at Bollaert, after ten wins in a row?
We had a very high quality opponent. We did some good things, but not enough. We could perhaps hope for a draw, but they did not steal their victory. We would have needed more accuracy, we could have attacked a little more depth in certain situations too. They defend going forward, they defend high. They were a little stronger than us tonight.
“There are times, in terms of results or performance, that are more difficult”
Is this the first time that an opponent has put you in such difficulty?
At home, of course. They managed to have a lot of spaces. It was a good fight, I would have preferred a draw on points. But we know what we have done, and what we will continue to do. In four days, we must leave (in Brest). That’s the only thing that’s true. I doubt that we will not fly over the season. There are times, in terms of results or performance, that are more difficult. I still found reasons for satisfaction on this match.
The infirmary was filled with the injury of Massadio Haïdara, in addition to those of Alexis Claude-Maurice and Salis Abdul Samed…
When a player leaves during the match, it’s never a very good sign. For Massadio, it seems to be at the top of the calf, I don’t have the details. For Alexis, he is going to have meniscus surgery, his pain increased after the match against Troyes. His downtime is expected to be two to three months. Salis suffered a bruised ligament in training on Tuesday. He finished training, but it was more complicated this morning when he woke up. It’s going to get back to normal pretty quickly, the exams show nothing bad.
Do the victories of your direct rivals in the ranking add frustration?
It does not change much today, we focus on us. There is a lot of time left, a lot of matches, we will take it with philosophy. »
