Peter Bosz "On a un meilleur équilibre"
The OL manager gave a pre-match press conference two days before the team's trip to face Troyes in Ligue 1 Uber Eats.


The squad

Thiago Mendes had his first training session this morning. We'll see. For Jeff I can't say anything, I'm not a doctor. He did part of the training with the team, without contact. I'm happy for him and for us.



We did a good job, especially without the ball. We had the chances to score a second goal. I don't know if it's a good point or not. There is more intensity in training. The players better understand what I am asking for, even if we sometimes lose the ball too easily.


A need for points

It is not enough to say that you have to win to get things done. My job is to think about how to win. There are always challenging spells for attackers. I know that when Moussa scores he will then continue to do. We have had a better balance, especially defensively. Before when we lost the ball we were very open. Things are getting better and better. We had more opportunity to train and put the system in place.



The team changed coaches and they didn't play last weekend. We can't have an idea of how they will play. It is thus even more important to focus on ourselves.


The team's young players

Malo has done some great things. I'm glad there's competition for places. I hope to have such competition in all positions. I like working with young players. When young people play well, like Castello (Lukeba), they play. Our academy is renowned. Our youngsters feature regularly. If the players have qualities they will train with us and play. It's my philosophy, if I need a player I always look first at the academy.


The mercato

We'll keep Emerson. Azmoum is a very good player, he scores goals and contributes a lot. We will see about the possibility for him to come.
