“Is your success deserved?
We came for this win (2-1). We got Satisfied with the evening. We came to play and we did a lot. We put a lot of intensity. We could have scored more goals. We had a lot of opportunities. It is relatively good. Defensively, we were better than Rennes, who opened the doors a bit. The difference between the races lies elsewhere. At Rennes, we agreed not to take points. Today, we did not agree not to take the three points in Montpellier. that’s great. We have taken enough of things and it is up to us to stop taking them and get what we want.
Did Lacazette save you three points in this game?
Absolutely. He is a surface player. We have many of them and he is one of them. Players are reluctant to go into that area and he feels comfortable there. This is where we score goals. He went to get it, but he was really tired. Football is often a matter of association. If you’re lucky enough to have central players who score goals, it’s complicated not to have them play together. We can make them compete, but that’s not the best way to get the most out of them. They look at each other to see who can score more goals. I inherit a squad like this. We have a lot of attacking options.
“After the defeat in Rennes we went back to work. Actors are exemplary in this regard. We take the three points and we are very satisfied.
How to explain floating during play?
We manage to control the match, to be the way we want to be in the game, we are aggressive to prevent Montpellier from touching (Teji) Savannah. But we have players who haven’t played for more than an hour. What happens happens, which means these players are in trouble. We know, we will be like this till November 13th. We will no longer lack athleticism after the international break.
Laurent Blanc is satisfied with his team’s performance in Montpellier. (N. Lutiau/The Team)
Will this win restore ambition to your team?
The desire was to take the point. We didn’t do that at Rennes. We were very disappointed with our content. Bringing a point back from Rennes on the right track was not impossible. We are back to work. Actors are exemplary in this regard. We take the three points and we are very satisfied. »
