The Reims coach expressed his joy after his men’s victory on the Lille field on Tuesday, during the sixth day of the French championship.
Will Still (Reims coach, winner 2-1 on the Lille pitch ) : “I think the game plan was quite clear, we absolutely wanted to close this axis of the game where Lille likes to p. The game plan worked perfectly on the second goal where they forced something full axis and we managed to recover and exploit the spaces left. We didn’t have any sequences in the match where we fell asleep, which is very positive.
We saw the true image of Stade de Reims, the one that is capable of playing, of sticking to a game plan, of staying focused, of keeping its back rounded. I can only be very proud of the players. We’ve always said it to ourselves: we’re not afraid of anyone. We know that we are capable of doing great things, sometimes our biggest adversary is ourselves.»
