“How do you feel after reviewing the performance of your team in Nice (3-0, Sunday) ?
A good match that must quickly be forgotten. That’s my message. tomorrow (Wednesday), it is such an important meeting. We are happy, of course, but in the end, it’s just a game. It gives us a little more confidence, enthusiasm, the feeling that we can do good things.
“He sometimes does not even realize his qualities, his races, he is so hard to follow when he accelerates”
But is this the kind of match, at least for the first period, which begins to correspond to the direct and aggressive game that you advocate?
It was a very good first half, from all points of view. Going to Nice and being able to score four or five deserved goals means that you are on the right track, but tomorrow is another match, you have to move on quickly. Everyone doesn’t care about what happened on Sunday. So with little training, you have to keep improving.
OM lost no less than 25 points at home last season. How do you view your team’s performance at home? Do you want to sanctify the meeting at the Vélodrome?
It should always be the case. We got off to a good start and we have to move on to the Vélodrome. Playing in front of this audience should be easier for us, and more difficult for our opponents. There are not many people like that in France. We have to give everything tomorrow, against an opponent we respect, to confirm our match on Sunday.
What do you think of your left piston Nuno Tavares, author of a thunderous start to the season?
He is a player that we absolutely wanted. I think he still has a huge room for improvement. He sometimes does not even realize his qualities, his races, he is so hard to follow when he accelerates. His goals are linked to the quality of his finishing. At Arsenal, the team played four or five behind, it depended, and it was still a little different. »
