Zapping Our Mondial TOP 10: The most profitable transfers in history
One day after their stunning victory against Sparta Prague (4-3), OL will once again have to face a quality opponent while the Lyonnais move on the lawn of OGC Nice. A match that could allow the Gones, if successful, to pass in front of their opponent. Peter Bosz, present at the press conference, hopes that his players will be able to achieve a complete match: “I would like us to have a good full game, over 90 minutes. The upcoming matches will all be difficult, against top-of-the-table teams. They will be important. Nice is a good club. It is a direct competitor. They have changed coaches this season. Christophe Galtier had done a good job in Lille, and he continues in Nice. It’s an organized team, which plays well, with good summer recruits” did he declare.
He then slipped a small warning against Lucas Paqueta, guilty of a delay in the pre-match talk against Prague, Thursday night: “I hope we will have a better start than in Prague. I watched the game again. I have some ideas, I will share them with the players today. There are rules for all players regarding delays. If there are no rules outside the field, it is not possible to be diligent during the matches. There is still work to be done. We have improved a lot since the start of the season. You always have to improve“.
He then looked at the cases of Amine Gouiri and Melvin Bard, former Lyonnais now on the side of the OGCN: “I had seen Melvin (Bard) for only a few practices before he joined the Olympic team. Amine (Gouiri) is a good player, who can still improve. Both play there, that says a lot about our training center“he thus launched.
Caqueret speaks on Paqueta and Nice!
Also present in front of the media, Maxence Caqueret also spoke about the delay of Lucas Paqueta: “It is good for everyone that the rules are applied. It is important to move forward together. The coach had set a rule at the start of the season, he applied it. It’s very good for the group“he said before referring to his two former teammates, Amine Gouiri and Melvin Bard:”Melvin (Bard) and Amine (Gouiri) are two friends for me. However, they will be opponents on the pitch tomorrow. They are having a good season. It will be good to find them. It’s always rewarding to play against them“.
The Gones midfielder concluded by referring to the upcoming calendar and the level of Nice: “We have a nice calendar to come. We can judge our level, that’s good. These are head-to-head matches, so it’s important to win these games. They are ahead of us in the standings, so it’s exciting. We know them, but they also know us. They have adapted to a new style of play. The last match against Nice was a big disappointment (2-3 defeat, preventing OL from playing C1). It’s from the past. We could only blame us“.
Peter Bosz and Maxence Caqueret were present at a press conference on the eve of Les Gones’ trip to Nice. The coach and his midfielder spoke about the level of OGCN and returned to the controversy surrounding Lucas Paqueta.
