Bordeaux - OL: Post-match reactions
"The little injury I suffered late in the game is okay, it's just a knock, there's no need to worry. I know I have an important role for the team in this system because I am a bit of a hub. I'm especially disappointed not to bring back the 3 points with the team. In having 20 shots we have to be more clinical in attack. We may not be doing the right things at the right time, we will have to work on this with the whole squad and grow in terms of our collective play. We will have to recover from this match to bring back 3 points from Montpellier on Tuesday. "

“It's a very frustrating match. We didn't have a lot of chances but we held the ball for a very long time. Playing with Moussa Dembélé and Memphis up front is something that very recent, we have to learn how to be on the same wavelength and things will get much better over time. The team is trying to play, to keep the ball, we have to keep working on this. We have been able to be solid, we have to build on that."
“I’m happy to have played my first match with the club. Unfortunately, it turned out badly for us but we will continue to work to rectify the situation starting on Tuesday. It was a tough match today. The goal this year will be to return to the Champions League, it will take a step up to achieve this goal. "
“We are frustrated not to have won, we totally dominated this match. There was often a lack of luck, as evidenced by Houssem Aouar hitting the post. We probably weren't killer enough in our finishing, but the rest of our game was pretty consistent. It was hard to punch a whole in this low block but we should have done better. This 3-4-3 system allows us to be more attacking with three players in front. This system was interesting, but it will be necessary to be more clinical in our finishing. With some success, it is quite possible to continue with this system. I’m happy with Andersen’s performance -- he is coming back well. We are in a unique period, that of the transfer window; it's a period that no coach enjoys. We will do everything to win the next matches. "
