Fernando Marçal : "We regained confidence by scoring a lot of goals"
Update on his health
"The injury is over. I was not with the squad on Wednesday as part of that recover. I played a Cup match last weekend. Resting on Wednesday was good to allow me to be able to be fit and to play tomorrow. I want to leave my injury in 2019. I want to forget the injury to move on and give my team as much as possible. "
The dynamic at present
"It's a different year, we want to give everything to finish the championship where we should be, in 2nd or 3rd place. I think it's good to have won against Brest but Bordeaux is going to be the first league game and therefore more complicated, especially since they are playing at home. We will give everything to get second place. I think we have to remember that we are OL and that we have the quality to go for second or third place. We won 3-1 against Brest but in the first half alone it could have been 4-0. "
His role in the team
"I feel good, I think that with the injury of Youssouf (Koné), the club may be looking for another fullback even if Maxwel (Cornet) does a very good job in this position. In my head, I think that my injury is 100% finished. My problem is physical, not technical. I see Maxwel as a good option. I have to be 100% physically and work to be able to play. "
About the match
"I think starting with two cup matches is good. Tomorrow is really going to be a different game. We have to go for this second or third place. We will have to be attentive and focused tomorrow to win. We have a lot of points to be earned and we will start tomorrow. Bordeaux are a good team. They have had a few "problems" like us. But they are very good players and have a good coach. We regained our confidence by scoring a lot of goals. "
Maxence Caqueret“Maxence has a lot to offer the club. He is young but intelligent. He doesn’t lose the ball frequently; it’s difficult to take the ball from him; despite being small, he uses his body very well, I like him a lot. Young people have a lot to bring to the club. "
