A difficult setback to digest in Montpellier
“It’s never easy to digest because you always want to win. That’s the mentality I want in my players. We spent the following days analyzing what we had done well and what we hadn’t done well. had good things. The data shows it. It was our best game in terms of the number of passes in the opposing box. We missed the last pass, the right gesture. Small details that in the end are very important”.
The Cup, a goal
“It’s a goal, of course, because I want a team that wants to win everything, in the league, even in the Europa League, in the Cup and in training. I want winners. It’s very important for a football player to have that mentality.
Lens, a formidable opponent
“Seko Fofana is a great player but Lens is not just him. It’s a team with a lot of quality. Offensively, they have very good players. Clauss in the right piston, Kalimuendo in attack. Lens plays to score goals. It’s going to be a great game to watch.”
Doubts about the goalkeeper
“Alex (Nübel) and Radeck (Majecki) each have a little problem. Nübel received a blow to the head in training yesterday (Thursday), he is in a little pain. Radeck feels a little discomfort, it’s not sure he’s ready. The match is in two days, we’ll see how it goes.”
