“Are you happy with this result or would you have preferred to score more goals in case the goal difference was decisive at the end of the season?
The goal difference will come into play if they (RC Lens) draw and end up tied. Only then will it matter. Me, I think that 73 points after 35 days is really a good result.
You made a lot of changes in the second half: were they planned or was it the game that led you there?
I make changes based on what I see. I prepare the match with ideas but I change according to the match.
Why did you start Valentin Rongier in the right axis of defense rather than Chancel Mbemba, and why Cengiz Ünder in the corridor rather than Nuno Tavares or Issa Kaboré?
I build the team that I think has the best chance of winning. I put Rongier in this position because Angers had played a lot in 5-3-2 and I knew he would have the opportunity to come out from the defense towards the middle to bring in a surplus.
Why did you release Alexis Sanchez before the end?
It had to be taken out, in addition it had a small problem behind (thigh ?). Alexis can play in front, where he makes the difference, but also a little further back, in support.
Gigot was not in the group.
He didn’t play because he couldn’t, we hope he will be there for the next game. »
