What follows after this advertisement

Incredible scenario in this shock of the 13th day of Ligue 1 between Stade Rennais and Olympique Lyonnais. The two teams had the opportunity to take advantage of the draws of Nice and OM to pick up the rankings. For their part, the Gones hoped to finally be able to clinch a victory in the league after a European success, something that has not happened to them since the start of the season. Well it was missed. And not just a little. Tonight, the Rhone residents received a real football lesson in Brittany. Rolled 4 goals to 1, Peter Bosz’s men could even have bowed more heavily.

Faced with the media, the Lyonnais have rather kept a low profile. But Juninho did not hesitate to take the floor to quickly defuse the situation. “We are a little ashamed of course. We were overwhelmed. In the first half, we deserved to lose 2, 3 zero. When that happens to us, there is not much to say, we have to congratulate the opponent and assume that we cannot repeat things like that because here it is the high level ”, he said in the mixed zone, before confiding that his team still had the same problem.

Juninho doesn’t blame the players

“And we have continued to have a problem for a long time: we have a lot of fun when we have the ball. But we don’t have fun defending each other. In top-level football, you even have to be mean. (…) We are a team, like OM and PSG, against which opponents like to play. If you come into a match like that, without having your heart and your desire, it happens. On the other hand, there is nothing lost. When we take a lesson, it’s okay, that’s life, we take lessons every day. We will continue to work. I hope that all will assume. (…) Not all sectors functioned as usual. And when it’s like that, you need your heart, to fight, to fight. You need to show your opponent that you are there too to win the game. When the opponents feel that you are not like that, they take advantage ”.

Aware of certain difficulties for his family, the sports director of OL did not want to overwhelm his flock so far. “But I’m not going to criticize the players. They have been working a lot since the start of the season. Tonight, I hope it will just be an apprenticeship for the future. (…) This is the first time that this has happened, it is not deserved either. They are human beings. We have a young team. But you have to know that you have to mentally prepare this kind of match further upstream. But I can’t be mad at the players. I have a lot of confidence in them. We work very well together, we start to create an atmosphere. We play well. I repeat, we must also have the pleasure of defending for others. All the teams that win have this ». The message got through.
