Jean-Michel Aulas : "The team played beautiful football"
"I am very satisfied. I am tired of the various media that knock us all day long. The young people who have joined the team are getting better and better. We dominated Bordeaux, we played really well. I have confidence in my team, the boys really pulled it off despite the lack of success in finishing. We were able to start off the year on the right foot. The score is the whole story against Bordeaux, this OL is a team that has the confidence to be among the leaders. Rudi Garcia is doing a good job. The team played good football, the youngsters were good. We created a dozen chances. Despite a "gift goal", nobody gave up and everyone kept attacking. The players are together but we have to be patient because good football translates into good performances but a little of this can also go in the opposite direction. You have to believe in what you do, believe in the players and believe in Rudi Garcia. We're working on the transfer window. The youngsters, like Maxence Caqueret, are doing very well. We want to buy players who can gain value. So we seek to strengthen as we are still fighting on four fronts. It’s premature to say anything because the market is a little crazy. There will be no departures without replacement, and there are many false things being said about Lucas (Tousart) and Moussa (Dembélé). We have good news about Youssouf (Koné) and Léo (Dubois), who should be back before February 28. And I would like to point out that Florian (Maurice) and Juninho get along very well contrary to what one hears in the press. I can tell you that by January 31 there will be very good news. "
