OL - Brest (3-1) : The post-match reactions
“We are a away match from the Stade de France. I would have done without Brest's goal. We still need to improve. One is never safe when we could have finished peacefully. The most important thing was to qualify. We have to be able to continue like this in Bordeaux. It will be necessary to be prepared mentally to bring back three points… Maxwel Cornet was good. It helps us. It’s his best game as a left back. He brings us a lot and he defended well. This gives us options. We wanted to take no risk with Marçal. He'll continue to be an alternative over time… Solet’s injury is very bad news. We are devastated. This forces us to say to ourselves that it may not be just bad luck. We will give ourselves all the means to make the necessary investigations and see if we can improve something. Hopefully it was just bad luck. We have to recruit an attacking player. "
“We have done a good job since the break. We gave everything. We must now focus on Ligue 1 with the trip to Bordeaux. I was able to help my team tonight. My time will come. I want to stay at OL. I knew it was going to be difficult because I am young and I come from Brazil. "
“The goal conceded is regrettable. We’re going to be satisfied with qualification because we wanted to get it. We want to do something this season. The coach gives me a lot of freedom. I do not stay on the sidelines so I can exploit my qualities. Our confidence is beginning to return. Saturday's game will be very tough. We will have to win to be able to talk about a good run of form. It will be a very important match. We must not fall back into the trap of sleepwalking. "
