Leonardo Jardim : "Do our best"
Leonardo Jardim appeared in a press conference two days before the reception of the OGC Nice at the Stade Louis II for the seventh matchday of Ligue 1 Conforama.
Wissam and Islam have trained, we will see tomorrow how their situations evolve. Both players are motivated, they are doing their best to be available for the squad.
To not concede a goal is a positive thing. The team stayed in its shape, which is very important. We have three games in seven days, we need to manage the squad well.
The players had a good match. We were balanced, nobody dropped their heads. It started poorly but after that, we had control of the game. It is important to be positive about things. We are working to get out of this difficult situation.
Benjamin Lecomte had a good match, playing at the level we had been waiting for from him. He had a very good pre-season. He had, like all the team, some difficult moments. With this match, he returned to the level that he was at his during the preseason.
It's a match where there will be a lot of intensity, Nice managed to keep much of their squad from last year, except for the odd departure. It's a good team, and well-supported.
I've said it before, it's understandable that the fans are upset when the results are not there. We need to play hard and do our best with the support of our fans.
I have always had the support of the President, there is a lot of respect between us. We always work together. He has always been very straight with me.
