All the post-match reactions.
I think we deserved the victory. We were ahead in many areas. After, they put a second goal, unfortunately. We wanted to show what we can do. We had at heart to do better than against Schalke. Maybe we lack a bit of luck. We will try to achieve more of our opportunities in the next game. Anyway, even with the numerical inferiority, we were solid. Personally, it feels good to play again, I found the rhythm. Afterwards, I could have done better, but I hope to play next week. It's good for Bafé, we can count on him scoring again.
We must analyze the big picture. PSG is a team that likes coming out and playing the counter attack. We have played a lot of matches since Sunday. It was a disadvantage for us, and the insinuations once again from l’Equipe, on incidents of last season. After Antoine Kombouare had criticized Hugo. And finally it was his keeper who took away good needle from our foot. Without it being a great match, it is a good result after the European match. But when you do not take all three points at the Stade Gerland, they must be taken away from home. We have great players, many internationals, and they were responsible. Against Schalke we were beaten physically.
There was a lot of disappointment in the dressing room because the players put in a good performance. The best thing was to equalize against a team who was very good on the counter attack. In our strong moments, we could have doubled the lead, unfortunately. This is a high level game, it is decided on details, it was very hard. We missed a little more luck or skill. I really think we put in a very good game, but I was afraid in the second half that we would not be able to digest the sequence of games. But it's good, we were constant throughout the game, it's interesting. Tonight we were present for the duration, and that is good because they are high-level games. As for Toulalan, I hope it is not a tear. The double sanction on the penalty is severe, especially seeing as he dove, given the images. So double injustice. Bafé is an intelligent player and who is mentally strong. He focused on his work, and never let go, while improving his game. He always has the right attitude on top of that.
There is no victory, unfortunately, so it's not a match that I will remember particularly. When you see the face of the game, it’s a shame, on top of that we finished up with ten men. For my part, I was able to take advantage of an error. When we play at home, you know you will be pushed by the public. Unfortunately we conceded an equalizer. I’d like to thank the supporters for getting behind me, I must be an example to them, especially as far as Jean II is concerned. But I still have many things to do to improve. It is necessary for the team to progress as well, to follow up in the league but also in the European Cup.
The penalty changed a lot. Afterwards Bafé saved us late in the game, he put in an extraordinary match. The team relied heavily on him, and he held on to a lot of balls. So I am proud that he put in a performance like this. The coach told me to move in to the centre in order to shoot. I had some opportunities, but I hope that next time it goes in.
The first feeling that comes to me is frustration. We had three points in the bag. Edel made a mistake that cost us points. Afterwards, there was quality in our performance, because even at 2-2, Sessegnon had an opportunity to score. But tonight Edel is in my thoughts, because it is he who is most unhappy.
