Paulo Fonseca, Lille coach: “Difficult to make a choice” between Leny Yoro and Alexsandro

“How are you approaching the trip to Brest this Wednesday?
We don’t know what will happen. They have a new coach, it’s hard for me to know how they’re going to play. But we know that Brest are a very physical team. They press very well, intensely. We also know that it’s difficult to play against Brest, and that Lille haven’t won in the last four games against them. This is an important point to measure the difficulty of the match ahead of us. We must be vigilant, concentrated because tomorrow (Wednesday)it will be a very intense and very difficult game.

“Lucas (Chevalier) must continue to work, to be focused to play well here”

José Fonte is still out. Between Yoro and Alexsandro, who played together on Sunday against Troyes (2-0, in the Cup), who appealed to you the most?
(He’s laughing) I’m not going to say who will play tomorrow. I know it. Leny had a very good game. Alexsandro too. Right now we have to think about a lot of things, the opponent, the form of the players, how we want to play. You will have to wait. How do I choose? There are various reasons. For tomorrow, we have to think according to the type of match that awaits us. But we don’t have a hierarchy. I decided only for the characteristics of the opponent, the game we want to do. They are obviously different players. Leny is very young but I think he has a strong mentality. Alex is a more physical, fast, aggressive player. He is more aggressive than Leny but I think Leny is more focused than Alex. It’s hard for me to make a choice. These are small details. The most important thing is that I have very good and ready players.

Hugo Lloris has cited Lucas Chevalier as one of his possible successors in the future. What inspires you?
It’s not fair to create that expectation. Lucas must continue to work, to be focused to play well here. He has room for improvement. Now he just has to keep thinking about Lille. »
