Thauvin: "Porto is the last chance match"


Florian Thauvin, Michaël Cuisance and Andre Villas-Boas deliver their feelings on RMC after OM's defeat against Manchester City on Tuesday (0-3).

Florian Thauvin (OM striker)

 : “It's a difficult defeat to take.

We knew they would have control of the ball.

We decided to play with a low block to try to take them against.

Unfortunately, we did not manage to set up what we wanted.

It's another level ... You have to be honest.

We have to learn from these matches, progress.

But it's true that it's a difficult defeat because we take three.

It's hard to take ... (...) The second period was better, we managed to create more situation.

When we went on a counter-attack, we were a little more in their camp.

After that, we didn't manage to realize our chances ... To be honest, when you spend two matches 30 meters from your goal, and you have 70 meters to go to score against, it's hard to have the legs, we knew it ... We will have to progress in the use of the ball and in our counter-attacks.

These are matches that should allow us to progress.


Yes, this is the last chance game.

What hurts us is this defeat against Olympiakos.

We must do better.

It's the Champions League.

It had been seven years since we had attended.

We cannot hide behind it, but we must all learn together and we must do better. "

Michaël Cuisance (OM midfielder, after the 0-3 defeat against City)

 : “It was a complicated match, a match that we dreaded.

We tried to do our best to avoid conceding this first goal, which hurt us, and hope for a counter-attack to open the scoring and close.

We expected that from Manchester City, we know this team.

All the clubs that face them play this way (very low, editor's note).

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

It did not work tonight ... We must quickly look ahead and continue to work.

(...) The coach had asked us to stay united, to remain as a team, to make the efforts, to tear themselves apart for each other.

I think we need to do more, we need to be together more.

You need better group cohesion to win this kind of match.

This is what we missed.

We have to make a big effort on this.

(...) Porto?

In life, hope brings life!

Afterwards, we will work to make the people of Marseille proud and bring points home.

We are going to give everything on the ground to hope for something.

(...) My service?

I am dissatisfied.

I think of the collective.

We didn't do the job, so I'm not happy.

Afterwards, it's a process, it's been a long time since I last played.

And I have good feelings that come back.

I'm happy for it.

I hope the rest will be good. ”
