– Fleur, how do you feel in this new group?
“The group has changed a lot but I feel particularly comfortable with all the girls. We are happy to be in the field. There is good cohesion and a great osmosis between us. It’s a pretty good sign ”.
– What did you feel during this victory at Mondeville in the Cup the last week?
“To be honest, a slight relaxation. We had a little complicated preparation. In addition, we had started with two big defeats and that did not really give you confidence. Beating Mondeville, a future big hunk of the coming season, even if their American was out, feels good. For the cohesion of the group, this victory is important. I think we’re ready. Despite the injuries, we worked well and I believe that all the players are affected by the project ”.
– Comment do you see your trip to Chartres?
“We have just recovered Anne-Françoise Diouf to strengthen the domestic sector. With our squad and our preparation, we are leaving serene but if Chartres will be one of the big pieces of the division with Toulouse and Mondeville ”.
– What do you expect from this new season?
“I hope that will escape this relegation position that has stuck with us for several seasons. I expect great cohesion from the team. Personally, I hope to bring that little extra that will allow the club to achieve its goals ”
