Sylvinho : « Le derby est un match difficile qu'il faut gagner »
Ahead of the derby against Saint-Étienne, Sylnivho spoke to a press conference this Friday to answer journalists' questions. His remarks are to be found in full on OLTV and OLPLAY.

The squad

"Youssouf Koné will be absent. Some players came back tired from Germany. I will take the best-prepared and fit players. "


A reassuring win against Leipzig

"I liked the fighting spirit and playing with dynamism. I really enjoyed what I saw. Not only for the victory, but also for the way players have evolved. We needed a victory like this. It was a complicated and technical opponent and I am happy with what we showed on the field. "


The derby

"A derby is a derby. I know it's two tough matches and you have to win. Most of my players have already played this fixture. They know what it represents. We will build our team until Sunday to better prepare for this match. We are going there to play football. "



"We have analyzed the team with the video. It's a team that varies its systems and plays in European competition. I can not say enough to speak to the tactics. "


The tactical system

"I played in 4-1-4-1 in the first three games, but then I had to change the system. I was missing some players. When I change the system it is to allow the players to play to their potential. Sometimes, I have to make choices. High pressing gives us a lot of goals. Today, we must do more to develop our game. "


Resuming normal service

"Part of our job is to bring continuity. What has been done well needs to be improved. We know the ups and downs of last year. OL is a great team and must be consistent. "


The current situation

"I do not care about my own fate. I'm interested in my players, their performance and how to develop their level of play. I am a man of conviction. But if I have to put those convictions aside for the good of the team, then I put them aside. I have the foresight to be able to adapt to the present moment. "
