Jean-Luc Vasseur : « Nous devons être au niveau tout le temps »
On the eve of the second leg of the UEFA Women's Champions League Round of 32 match against Ryazan, Jean-Luc Vasseur and Sarah Bouhaddi presented themselves at a press conference. Their comments are to be found in full on OLTV and OL PLAY.

The return leg against Ryazane

"I'm waiting for my players to continue working. The first leg was well-played and successful. I want the return leg to be the same. I need all of my squad to be in optimal form. "


Remain focused

"At OL, you are on permanent alert. You must never relax. Tomorrow, the girls will be concentrated. This sort of difficulty is part of our daily lives. Once the girls are on the pitch, they want to play and give everything. I did not come to OL to rest easily. The match against Paris was difficult, although I do not feel that we had been much endangered. In the Women's Champions League, there are good teams that are progressing. We must be on our guard. "


Squad management

"Those who play less in September may be playing more in March. We must be at the same level all the time. Nothing is a given. Tomorrow we will have a great team that will do what is necessary to win. You must not depend only on a few players. You need the best prepared workforce to be the best performer. It's up to me to find the right people at the right time and to stay in good form. "





The match against Ryazan

"Tomorrow's game will be as important as the first leg. We still have a lot to work on. We saw it against Paris. When you sign up with OL, you know you can go to the competition final. The new players know that we have already won the Women's Champions League and that we want to repeat. The first round allows us to set up our game plan for the future and to lay the foundation for what will follow.


Daily work

"I work all week to be fit for the match. I give everything to be a starter. There is no desire to relax. The coach asks for movement and short passes. It is necessary to understand what he asks for and that it becomes internalized. "
