Zapping Goal! soccer club Stade Rennais – GOAL INFO! : Lazio go on the attack for Benjamin Bourigeaud
The medical point
“Xeka is in the infirmary, Baptiste Santamaria will play this afternoon (Saturday) with the reserves but he is not in the squad for tomorrow (Sunday). Warmed Omari and Benjamin Bourigeaud are absent.”
“We are still waiting for different opinions to know if he will need an intervention or not. His unavailability will depend on this decision. Serious injury? Yes.”
Is the defeat against Clermont digested?
“Yes we have to. The next day we always feel like we’ve taken a 33-tonne full face. After our job, it’s to leave, find solutions, make the right choices to bounce back. That’s the most important thing . Digest is not the word, but I left the next day with the intention of correcting certain things and showing a face that we are used to showing at home.
The shock against PSG
“It’s good to welcome a great team here. It’s an extra motivation and I think it will allow us to tighten up even more.”
We are not going to deny ourselves. You have to be lucid. We have in front of us the best team in the championship, the best player in the championship and the best individuals in the championship. You have to be smart, be able to defend well. We also have in mind to play our game. We will play to win. I prefer to lose 1-0 trying to win. We also have the support of our public. It will be very important for us tomorrow night. When you’ve done it before (winning against Paris), it gives you confidence, the desire to do it again, but it will be a completely different match from last year, I think.”
“If Christophe Galtier is fair play, as we have two important players absent, he should normally do without two important players. That’s what he’s going to do I think.”
How to stop Mbappé?
“He’s such an unpredictable and exceptional player that it’s very difficult. We know that to play against them you have to be at 150% and have a little success to get a result. Lens did it but in a difficult context. little different. Monaco did it. It’s up to us to draw inspiration from these experiences, and do the maximum.”
“I have a lot of respect for his career. For me, he is the best French coach over time, on what he did in St-Etienne, in Lille, what he is doing with the PSG. He’s someone I get on well with outside of the professional aspect as well. A role model? I don’t have a career plan but it’s true that we have similar profiles a little. Even if he has a lot more experience than me, he started much earlier. He was assistant, he became number 1 and then he grew little by little through experience. In each club where he is gone, he fulfilled the objectives and even did better than that. I hope to do the same.”
