Lucien Favre (Nice): “It’s up to us to make things happen”

“With your bad start to the season, do these two matches against Cologne on Thursday, then AC Ajaccio on Sunday, already represent a pivotal moment in the Nice season?
I wouldn’t say that. Always stay positive. It is clear that this is a difficult time for everyone. The players, the coaches. But it’s up to us to make things happen, no one else.

We felt you were very disappointed, almost dejected, after the defeat against Monaco (0-1, Sunday). How are you feeling three days later?
I was disappointed because we didn’t have enough ball possession, we didn’t control the game enough. But overall, it was not to be condemned, far from it, especially in the first period. Still, there were some good things overall. Monaco didn’t have many chances, we had a few anyway. When you lose, it is clear that you are disappointed. It’s football, we have to move on.

It is difficult to read the construction of your workforce. We feel you are groping at the level of the system to adopt. Did you find the best formula?
Well, yes, it’s hard to find. That’s why we try several systems. We’ll find the best.

Are you going to practice alternating at the level of goalkeepers and establish Marcin Bulka in the Europa League Conference?
We’ll see. It’s possible…

“In ten years, we will no longer be able to fly as we want by plane. Everyone must make an effort for ecology. »

Ross Barkley is not qualified for this match. Will he be ready to play on Sunday?
I can not tell you. He hasn’t had a full match since mid-July. It’s very difficult to say what form he is in. It may lack rhythm.

Do you see it more in 6 or 8?
I was told it was more of an 8.

You must have followed the controversy around comments by Christophe Galtier this week. How should sport evolve on ecological issues?
It was a joke, there is no problem… But it is clear that the sport must evolve with this, it is clear and clear. In ten years, we will no longer be able to fly as we want by plane. Everyone must make an effort for ecology. You have to make an effort, but it is clear that it cannot be done overnight. Ajax players have already decided to travel by train only.

Is it possible in a city like Nice to deprive yourself of air travel?
No it’s impossible. »
