Mathieu Gorgelin : « J’ai progressé dans mon jeu, surtout dans l’appréhension des matches »
OL's backup goalie will make his final start Friday against Reims before starter Anthony Lopes comes back from suspension.

His last match before Lopes returns

There's no more pressure compared to other matches. There was more [pressure] at the end of last season. The goal is to finish well and get the points. I'm having a lot of fun. Being able to play several matches in a row has been interesting. I feel like i've improved.

The trip to Reims

It won't be easy. Reims started the season off well against Nice. This is their first home game, in front of their fans. We must be focused in order to get the win ... we need the points because all the big clubs are already in good shape.

Pitch conditions

We adapt. We try not to take risks in certain situations. We played some friendly matches on tough pitches. It's especially important to stay focused, especially in this position.

Room for improvement

In order to win you have to play a complete match. It's always the same. We need to better use our experiences from last season... We need to be more effective... We take all our opponents seriously. We're never naive about it.


He's always around to help us when things get tough. We know how capable he is of delivering for us. He does it at the most amazing times. He has huge potencial and can go even higher.
