Lorient-OL: The post-match reactions
Published on 27 September 2020 at 7:30 PM
After the draw between Lorient and OL (1-1) this Sunday afternoon, Marcelo, Rudi Garcia and Thomas Fontaine spoke to OLTV to express their feelings about the match. All reactions can be found in full on OL PLAY.
"My injury is not very serious, although I think the referee should have given the Lorient player a red. All the teams that play against us use a very low block, it's hard to find solutions to score goals. Hopefully we can quickly figure out how to beat opponents who play this way."
“We were lacking in the first half because I didn't field the right team or use the right system. With more attacking players, we were much better. Against such a compact team, it is important not to concede the opener, which we failed to do. Léo Dubois was able to allow us to pick up a point but we owe it to ourselves to be much more dangerous. To concede a draw in that situation is unacceptable. The president is right when he says that the players have their share of responsibility, that they are not running enough. There's not enough hunger in their play. It's not normal to think that the transfer window can influence the motivation of players, but when I see certain behavior, I wonder. Tonight, I am more than unhappy. "
"It was a great pleasure to play against my first club -- I had already had this experience with Reims. I always watch what my teammates from the academy are doing, whether it be Jordan Ferri, Alexandre Lacazette or Samuel Umtiti. We knew we had to play hard against them, it's a team that reached the semifinals of the Champions League so the score suits us very well. "
