Laurey (Paris FC) after the victory against Valenciennes in the Cup: “I am not a gardener”

After a very difficult start to the match, and a penalty conceded for a handball by Loup Diwan Gueho in his area (0-1, 16th), Paris FC found a little light to win quite logically, this Friday evening against in Valenciennes (3-1) in the 32nd finals of the Coupe de France. It is only the second victory of the season at home for the Ile-de-France club, which plays on a lawn unworthy of the top level. “I am not a gardenerlamented Thierry Laurey, his trainer, but I’m almost ashamed to welcome a pro team on this ground. There is waste in our game but I saw a Valenciennes player fall in front of me (because of the lawn). »

“We had a hard time moving on”

Winner in the Championship at Charléty (1-0, October 15), VA had however done everything well during the first twenty minutes. The northern club was unable to manage its frustration arising from a Parisian equalizer (1-1, 28th) on a questionable and disputed penalty, Jonathan Buatu’s fault having obviously been committed outside the penalty area. “We had a hard time moving on.admitted Nicolas Rabuel, the Hainaut coach. We must have this mental capacity to manage our emotions. We did not restart the second period well by quickly taking a second goal. We were punctured full axis when we were in excess and well in place. We must now preserve our invincibility at home on Tuesday against Annecy (in L2). »

On the Parisian side, Mehdi Chahiri, served a little too quietly by Paul Lasne (2-1, 49th), then Morgan Guilavogui, with a nice cross shot (3-1, 69th), extinguished all suspense. Thierry Laurey was able to make the changes he had planned. It’s the first time his side have won after trailing in 2022-23. “When we lose at home, I try to do everything to win away where we play on beautiful lawnsexplained the Parisian technician. We don’t always have the necessary concentration at home. We may be putting a little pressure on our shoulders. We made mistakes that we didn’t necessarily make on the outside. And we took too many red cards, six or seven. We even finished at nine once. We have to be much more disciplined at that level. »
