Wendie Renard : « Je suis revenue avec encore plus d’ambitions »
Our defender and captain Wendie Renard spoke before the team's match away to Paris Saint-Germain in the Coupe de France. The entire press conference can be found on OLplay.


"The girls put in a good performance. We want to continue like that, but this will be a different context. It will be up to us to make sure to qualify. It's a big match, and there is a lot of expectation around it. But that does not mean we can neglect other teams. It's true it looks like a final before the time. We will do everything to qualify."


Her injury

"I'm better, but it was a first part of frustrating season. It's not easy to be away from the pitch for so, but it's part of the game. I worked hard to come back. I was a little disappointed with the timing of the break I would have liked to keep playing. But my teammates had a good start to the season. I've returned with even more ambition to reach our goals."


On the reintegration of the "Américaines"

"These are three players who know the club, and their teammates. Their return feels natural. We took advantage of this training camp (in Spain) to continue the cohesion we established in the first part of the season. They were integrated as well as possible, so that they can be as efficient as possible. They are happy to come back, they know what we could do during this first part of the season."


On the team's play

"Offensively we've got back players who were injured. The coach has set up her style of play. She asks us for a lot of efforts in front of goal and to not be afraid to take our responsibilities in front of goal. At this moment, the danger can come from anywhere."
