“It’s going to be a very tough match on Wednesday. Rennes is doing very well right now, with players coming forward quickly, creating an imbalance like Sarr, Ben Arfa …. If you want to go to Europe, Coupe de la Ligue is the fastest way, not the easiest. We try to do what we can with what we have.
Against Rennes we will try to get as close as possible to the team that will face Marseille. It’s a match that can take us to the semi-finals so it’s important. In this phase of “small breaks” you have to manage the players a little differently. We must increase the intensity. We will see who has recovered well from the match against Canet. The team will be different against Rennes.”
“I was happy to see Rony Lopes on the pitch. He did not hurt himself playing. He trained this morning, and behind the scenes the puzzle is coming together. When you win, you’re often right. “
