Bruno Genesio (Rennes) after the defeat against OM: “It’s not possible to take such a ridiculous goal”
“What analysis do you make of this defeat against OM ?
We saw the difference between a mature team and a less mature one. Despite a difficult start, we had a very good first half. We gave them a lot of problems and we should have opened the scoring. Unfortunately, when you want to fight for the top of the table and the podium, you have to show a lot more maturity. We knew the importance of this first goal and it is not acceptable to concede a goal like that. Afterwards, we lost the thread, we occupied the ground less well.
Your players seemed surprised that Mr. Wattellier did not whistle before Veretout played his free kick…
I don’t know, the referee is not obliged to whistle. We lack attention, maturity, everything you want. When you want to compete with this kind of team, it’s not possible to take such a ridiculous goal. We tried to do the same thing and did you see what happened? Alexis Sanchez came to cut the action. The game boils down to this.
Has Rennes reached its glass ceiling?
This evening (Sunday), we can say. Faced with a team fighting for the podium, we can say that.
Is the podium still a goal?
It’s a setback that shows us that it is difficult for us to fight against this kind of team. Afterwards, there are 12 matches left, we also showed great things. We are already going to hang on to keep at least this fifth place and why not dream of doing better. »
