Through Aline Chatel
The Red Lantern isn’t much more advanced in accounting terms, but it breathes better! THE’AG Caen, the last that no one had imagined, brought back a good point from Alençon, Saturday 23 October 2021 (1-1). “I won more than a point, says Julien Le Pen. I won a group. “

“I would have signed right away”
With the report of the match scheduled two weeks earlier against Evreux, the Avant Garde had not played in the league since its defeat at Oissel on Saturday, September 25, 2021. But Alençon, winner of the AGC 6-0 in March 2020, is not the ideal opponent to (re) launch.
If at the start of the season I had been told that I would draw at Alençon, I would have signed. In view of the situation, we can say that two points are missing to do good, but it is a good result.
Hakim El Hamdaoui, with a magnificent lob, recalled that there was talent in the Alençonnais workforce. Kevin Goba gave him a nod a few minutes later in the second half. ” It’s a rather consistent and deserved draw, says Julien Le Pen. Both teams had situations. “
A founding victory?
“This match will be a founding one,” judges the coach of a team at the start of the nightmarish season (no victory, two draws, three losses). It is in the attitudes that Julien Le Pen liked the most his team at Alençon.
The guys have responded. Much has been said about human values and individual responsibility. We had to take responsibility. We were not well embarked. We saw a close-knit, united group that applied what we had worked together.
12 points behind the leaders …
Before welcoming the Le Havre reserve which has just put seven in Vire (7-0), AG Caen will be able to prepare more calmly for his trip to Granville in the Coupe de France. “We will have everything to gain. If we keep the values we showed at Alençon and we manage to create the feat, that will launch our season. The accounting reality of the moment is always ruthless. The Avant Garde is 12 points behind the two leaders, Oissel and Dieppe, who have already beaten it this season.
I’m not looking at what’s going on upstairs because we’re far from it. The truth of the ranking is that we are at the bottom. I take match by match. We must continue as [samedi soir]. It’s nice to see that again, to see players with a smile. I’m happy with what we took today. The boys understood some things.
The click? Possible. “Now we have to repeat. We know that sometimes it doesn’t matter much. I feel that something chosen has been created in Alençon. It’s not a victory but it’s more than a draw. “
