Jean-Luc Vasseur : « Nous devons respecter l'adversaire »
On the eve of the reception of Fortuna Hjorring, on the occasion of the Round of 16 of the Women's Champions League, Jean-Luc Vasseur and Amel Majri appeared at a press conference to answer journalists' questions. Their remarks can be found in full on OL PLAY.

The state of the squad

All the girls are here. The work of the medical staff allows for a team in good shape. We arrive in a period where we must be ready. The goal is to win and continue without physical issues.


The match against Hjorring

We always have a desire to improve. We must find a balance. We must respect the opponent. We must not give them anything. We work to advance. It's a week with three games. We try different formations and tactics. The girls are progressing well, it's nice to work with them. We will play with a lot of application. We can not do without anyone.


The evolution of the level of opponents' play

It's always difficult to play against poor teams. We try to find solutions. I hope that in the future we will have less match like that against Dijon. This meeting brings us back to reality. There are things I do not want to see in women's football, like wasting time. That's one of the things that annoys me. The girls are showing great application. The level goes up and you have to prepare for that.


The evolution of women's football

I hope that women's football evolves and I want it to be going in the right direction. The teams want to beat OL and for that they try underhanded methods. It must not be a negative for women's football.


The fixture list

If we want all the conditions to be met for this to be a big game and a good display, we must allow the teams time to work properly. The calendar is insane for girls. I would have preferred another week.


Ada Hegerberg

The success of Ada is above all a product of the collective. If she is as good as she, it is thanks to the players who surround her, like Amel.




The Women’s Champions League

If we reach the quarterfinals, the teams will start to be very strong. It's the best competition. We hold the title so everyone wants to beat us.


Her own good form

It's up to me to confirm and continue my current form. I try to do things to the maximum.


Her teammate Ada Hegerberg

She is a team player. Records certainly have a place in her head, but she thinks of the team.
