The Lion first appeared at the far post for the 1-0 then struck from afar, well helped by the Norman defense, for the 2-1.
But the double of the indestructible Cheikh Ndoye (34) was not enough to offer the chair of the National leader to the Red Star on Friday night in Quevilly-Rouen.
Before flying to Senegal to find his family in his district of Rufisque, east of Dakar, the international analyzed the draw (2-2) of his team on the massage table.
What feeling predominates after this result on the leader's pitch?
We are necessarily frustrated, we were there to win, to bring back the three points.
Quevilly-Rouen only strikes twice on goal and scores twice.
But we continue on our way and we are still two points from the lead.
The pressure remains on them.
National: hotel, locker room, match ... in the privacy of the Red Star, on a trip to Rouen
When was your last double?
It was in Ligue 1 in Lyon with Angers a while ago (Editor's note: 0-2 on December 5, 2015) ... It proves that the lion sleeps but he never dies
You lead twice in the score after a very satisfactory first period.
What did you say to yourself at half time?
Yes, we were well in place but we had to score this 3rd goal which would have changed a lot of things ... Finally, we take this long shot (Editor's note: in the top corner of Haddad, 62nd) which hurts us.

The Red Star remains firmly attached to the podium with 3rd place.
Is it a satisfaction before spending the holidays?

Yes, we will be able to be quiet.
It's positive and we have to stay positive.
We are always tied with Bastia.
The championship is still long since there are 18 games left.
We will think about the holidays.
I am satisfied with my troops and, personally, I found good feelings.
Tell us about the scuffle at the final whistle ...
I do not know what happened.
The Quevilly-Rouen guys were excited but they have to calm down.
It's only National and there is no TV there
