A sad end of the series for Paris FC.
After nine games without defeat, the Parisians fell into shock against Clermont (0-1).
They confirm their limits against the leading teams (5 points taken out of 21 against the first 4 in 7 confrontations).
With this defeat, the podium seems to have moved away for good.
The PFC is 7 points behind Clermont (2nd), 6 on Toulouse (3rd) and 5 on Grenoble (4th).
He nevertheless keeps 5th place with two points ahead of Auxerre (6th).
The Parisians went through this shock which tipped over to a goal certainly offside from Mohamed Bayo, the top scorer in Ligue 2 (19th achievement).
René Girard presented himself at a press conference with black eyes ...
Do you seem rather pissed off?
On the pitch, I held back… But what I see is that we lost on an offside goal of at least one meter.
I have reviewed the images and there is not the shadow of a hint.
In the first leg, we had already been covered with flour (sic) by a 3rd offside goal (3-2 loss).
So far I haven't said much.
But it all starts to get a little tiring… As against Troyes with Mr. Varela, I think he could have a little better on the whistle for such a shock than the referee tonight.
We are really frustrated.
Does this frustration explain the expulsion of Ali Abdi at the end of the match?
He takes a yellow then he applauds the referee.
I think we have seen much worse ... But hey, there are evenings like that, we must not try to understand.
This fact of the game has certainly penalized you.
But before this goal granted, Clermont had put you in difficulty several times ...
Clermont is not in front for nothing.
It's a great team.
But we got nothing for us.
I admit that we were not extraordinary in the game. But this offside goal granted, changes the whole face of the match.
He forced us to run after the score and that reinforced Clermont in his strategy.
They had come to wait for us and not to surrender.
At 1-0, it was easier for them.
For three games, you still seem to be stalling?
We were a little apathetic, we lacked juice and aggressiveness.
I have my little idea about it but I keep it to myself… Before analyzing the reasons for this less good blow, we will already think about recovering well.
You have to get back on your feet quickly because the trip to Guingamp happens quickly.
It won't be an easy game.
It's been over two months since we lost.
There is bound to be disappointment and frustration in the locker room.
At the accounting level, it's a very bad operation ...
Clermont and Grenoble, who also won, move away a bit.
You have to watch out for Auxerre.
The only good news is that they lost.
It's good, we stay ahead and we keep our chances for the dams.
Everything remains playable, we must continue to believe in it.
There are four games left, we're not going to start giving up now.
