The reactions after the victory against Sochaux.
It was not easy. There are good individualities in this Sochaux team. We put in a good first half. They lined up two forwards in the second half and we dropped back a little. We often tend to drop back in the second half and we must correct this.
We played well against St Etienne and lost. We played well against Paris and we lost. The important thing is the three points. There are still things to fix. It will take time. We are well and I know it will come. We had difficulties in marking their attackers. We are pleased with the victory, but now we must think of European Cup match.
This is the first time I've played three games in a week. I am very tired. Now it will be good to rest. It was hard. Wednesday we put in a good game but the elimination was hard to swallow. Tonight we battled but the main thing is that we took all three points.
We were always told to be ready to come on. The academy works well. We all wish to follow in the footsteps of Karim Benzema, who was also at the academy. I am very happy to have scored and that it allowed us to take this victory.
The scenario was a bit complicated. The main thing is to have taken all three points and continue our run. We must build on these values of solidarity. We ran a lot and suffered in the second half. We must improve our strong periods and the times in the match when we are weaker. Victories help us gain confidence. The season is still long.
These three points will do us a lot of good and were obtained with forceps. There was fatigue. We were unable to hold onto the advantage. We were no longer able to make the efforts. However, being able to pick ourselves up and go for the win is really great. It took strength to move forward especially with the youngsters. We had to do what we could, as we were not able to make the changes we wanted. Lisandro will be absent for three weeks due to a calf problem. We will speak with Jean to see if he can participate in the match against Benfica. Miro Pjanic has a problem with his adductors. And Michel picked up a dead leg this evening.
