"Saint-Etienne deserved their victory. They played very well and scored a fantastic first goal. We are having a great championship. If sometimes, we are a little off colour, it's normal. My ambition for the second half of the season, is to get one more point than we did in the first half."
"Certain think it is going to be easy against Sochaux, but I am not one of them. I have a feeling this team will avoid relegation."
"Eric Abidal won't quite be ready for Saturday, and the same goes for Aymen Abdennour. Dimitar Berbatov is getting stronger and stronger, he's getting better and better and he may start against Sochaux."
