“Just like in our other matches we had a number of chances. Our intentions were good even if we did allow our opponents too many opportunities. We need to find the right balance. Cris ? We rested him because of his groin problem. He will train on Thursday and there should be no problem as far as this week-end is concerned. Boumsong ? He will leave us on Thursday to join Panathinaïkos. An agreement has been reached, he will be linking up with Sidney again. OL agreed to his desire to move, having made an effort as far as his contract was concerned. The World Cup players? Hugo was called upon quickly, too quickly for my liking. Jérémy put in a solid first half and was very involved afterwards. Anthony came on and put in a serious performance”.
“We enjoyed ourselves and worked hard together. We did fairly well and are in better physical shape. We were able to play the ball around well and my relationship with Ederson is excellent. We need to correct a few things, notably our precision. This week-end will be a really good test”.
“It’s good, we’re starting to find our feet. We knocked the ball around well and the result is satisfying. It is important for the remainder of our preparation. We carved out a number of chances, but so did our opponents, we need to rectify that. I feel great in this group and have the confidence of the coach”.
