Bruno Genesio, Rennes coach, after the draw (1-1) in Lille : “We appreciate this point at its fair value… For me, Lille is the best team we have faced this season. It is a somewhat miraculous point. I also appreciated other values than those we are used to displaying, such as defensive solidarity. We stuck together, we suffered, we folded, but we didn’t break up. These are values that we must display in order to achieve our objectives. We are happy to take a point here. We were put in great difficulty. We defended quite well but we had a lot of trouble giving them problems.
“You can’t always be beautiful, sometimes you have to know how to take points by being naughtier”
After the equalizer, we fell back and suffered far too much. We may have deserved to have this success with this solidarity. We are doing well, we were spared because the score could have been largely in favor of Lille. I think we would have lost this match by a wide margin last year. We show a lot of character and it shows that we are progressing in certain areas. You can’t always be beautiful, sometimes you have to know how to take points by being naughtier. »
