Jean-Luc Vasseur : « Il y aura des lionnes sur le terrain »
Jean-Luc Vasseur gave a press conference on the eve of the big match of the weekend in D1 Arkema against PSG. The entire press conference can be found on OLPlay.

Medical update

“Selma Bacha sprained her ankle in the game at Brondby so she won't be available. Eugenie Le Sommer is a doubt. We will bring 19 players, and we will choose the 18 suitable for the match at 9 p.m."


A measure of revenge

“We will have a vengeance about our approach compared to the first leg. My team hasn't been here before. I would like to see them play in this different light. We remain focused on this match with great determination and great desire. The bitter taste of the first leg is still present; it should galvanize us and give us plenty of energy tomorrow to produce a good performance."

Take back the lead

“It's a French league final. We remain driven by the desire to move back into first place. We know it won't be easy. We must take our destiny back into our own hands. They are champions. We've been in the shadow of this team for a while. It’s a final played at home. It’s our duty to win. The standards of the club are very high. We must accept them and respond to them. We are looking forward to tomorrow. We love that the level of adrenaline will go up."


A talented squad

"We are used to playing games one after the other. We're trying to find the right rotation within the squad. We have a very deep bench. It's up to us to find the best team tomorrow from the start. The substitutes will be ready to come on to finish the job. We do not dwell on the details of recovery. We will have lionesses on the pitch. I rely on Wendie (Renard) who is an exceptional leader and champion. There are also other players. It will be a collective effort."

A good level of preparation against Brondby

“I would have loved to see Brondby play against other teams. They were very strong. I think that set us up well for what we have to produce tomorrow night. It was beneficial. We are very positive in approaching this match. We are not worried."


The draw for the UEFA Women's Champions League

“It's a tough draw but we've reached the quarterfinals. There are only great teams left, even if Rosengard seem to be a shade below. We have played Paris several times in the past, notably in the semifinals last year. They are a team used to this level of competition. We will have to work to move past this round."
