Victory after Milan

« It's really satisfying to have won this match. We felt the switch, and the players came back focused and keen to win after Europe. We opted for a fresh approach with a number of rotations and the team created a lot of chances. Combined play, depth and attacking variety. I think the boys showed their desire to win the match and to do it in the best possible way by being active, even if I thought the start was a little sluggish. ».

A standing ovation for Amine Gouiri

« The standing ovation was a testament to his willingness to play, to share, to exchange and to combine. The public must have rewarded all that »  

Warmed Omari stands out

« The way in which he has got back on track, certainly through a major rethink, is remarkable. Whether defending or getting the ball out, he is asserting himself as a key player, with the ability to assert himself in terms of leadership and communication.». 

First game as a starter for Alidu Seidu

« I found him very interesting, dynamic and committed to what he was doing. His technique was good too and he managed the emotional aspect of this particular match for him. It's a good omen ».  

Regularity and determination

« We can see that all the matches are difficult; Toulouse also played and won at Monaco. In terms of the league table, there are no favourites. We want to keep going with this excellent momentum. ».
