I don't have all the keys, it's a football match, let's try to explain everything but we don't always have the explanations. On this match against à Rodez, there was more strength, power, precision. In the last match, we also had more technical precision which surely gave us an advantage. more going à the team. (…) I think we made a big start, with the public pushing for it. and the opportunities that came, çit helpedé boys. We try to work on the starts with as much intensity as possible. possible, the opponent too. Sometimes it works and sometimes it's a little more complicated"

Metz face à his destiny

This team can pose problems for players. a lot of people, declaredé the coach of the garnet club.

To achieve this objective, the technician will be able to count on a limited workforce: "The group was é tightened &agrav; twenty-two players. Throughout the season and last year as well, we have worn our shoes. players on our backs who we didn't need. Players who didn't help us, who sometimes left us with problems. organizational problems and other problems too. When there are very few it's not good, but when there are too many it's not good either. I believe in a smaller group. I love having sixteen football players and more. side of ça, still six young people who want it. Voilaà what I like! "
