Guendouzi (OM) before the match against Frankfurt: “On a very good dynamic”

“After a defeat on the first day of the Champions League campaign, at Tottenham (2-0)in what state of mind do you approach this meeting?
There’s no pressure, we know what we have to do tomorrow (tuesday). Despite the poor result, this first game at Tottenham gave us a lot of confidence, there were lots of good things that we reviewed and analyzed on video, we managed to put this team in difficulty, which is the one of the strongest teams in Europe. We have been on a very good dynamic since the start of the season, we will continue like this.

“Today, we are all fulfilled, it shows in the results, but also in the way”

Is it already a decisive match for the continuation of the adventure in C1, even eliminatory, between two teams which lost during the first day?
No, because there will still be a lot of encounters afterwards. It will be a very important match, but not essential either for the future, we will not be qualified for the future if we win, nor eliminated if we lose it.

Can you detail the Tudor method?
As we have all seen, the preparation matches have been difficult, with a new coach, new players, new ideas and a new philosophy. It took time to adapt. Today, we are all fulfilled, it shows in the results, but also in the way, since the start of the season. It’s a game that requires a lot of intensity, verticality, attack, density in front of goal and very high pressing. We are making clear progress, we have assimilated the principles of the game well.

What does Alexis Sanchez bring you on a daily basis?
He is a very great professional, with a lot of experience. He has already scored a lot of goals in a few L1 days. He gives us a lot of confidence, he is very effective in the box, works a lot defensively. It’s really a plus for the team, he won a lot of trophies in the clubs where he went, he wants to continue to win at OM. We are all very happy to have him with us, and I hope he will continue to score many goals.

What do you think of this Frankfurt team?
We are going to play against a very offensive formation, which likes to keep the ball and attack, and which is undoubtedly sometimes more in difficulty defensively than Tottenham. The level of intensity, the technical level will be very high. Almost every season, in recent years, they have been in the European Cup, especially in the Europa League. I was able to face them in this event with Arsenal, in particular. They have players from France, like Trapp, Kolo Muani, Ndicka. There are a lot of qualities in this team and it will be a very tough match.

OM have not played in front of their home crowd, in C1, for more than nine years. What will the atmosphere be like for you?
We know that this is a match eagerly awaited by the fans. I have confidence in them, I hope there will be no excesses. I know they will behave very well, they will be there to push us. A C1 match is a football party. »
