Rafael :" Tell ourselves that the season starts now"
“The holidays are there to be enjoyed, to recharge mentally. It is important to forget the first part of the season and come back stronger. You have to be positive. With Marcelo, we haven't talked much about football. We are focused on something else during this period. "
A difficult start to the season
"I had a difficult start to the season with the operation. There are good players in my position. It was not easy to reclaim a place in the starting eleven. It was frustrating. Sometimes I wasn't even in the squad. But football is like that. I had to show that I could play ... No matter the position, I will be there all the time to help the team. "
The coach's approach
"He wants to correct what we don't do well. The coach is very positive and it’s good for us. Confidence is important in these times. We have to win and it will be easier for everyone. "
Resuming the season with determination
“We have to be positive for this second part of the season. We have to find energy. We missed it at the end of the year. It will be important to win Saturday to immediately regain confidence. We must forget what has happened. Our season is starting now, we have to think like that. "
The Coupe de France
“We have worked with video. We don't know the Bourg-en-Bresse team well. We are the favorites and we have to prove it on the pitch. "
