Ligue 1: the reactions of the teams to the fight to maintain


The clubs in the race to maintain had mixed fortunes this evening. Check out post-match reactions.

After another defeat, Angers are sinking towards Ligue 2 while the Angevins have long believed in a victory which would have been good for the players.

Abdel Bouhazama (Angers coach):

We had started well, we opened the scoring, we were good.

We wanted to continue, but I felt the boys who were starting to tense up.

From the equalizer, we fell back, we couldn't play anymore.

The boys gave themselves body and soul and then there is this goal.

To have made so much effort and not to be rewarded, it hurts.

It hurts.

We will continue to fight, we will recover a little bench depth.

We're not dead but it's getting harder and harder.

We already have one foot in Ligue 2 and if we continue like this, we will have both feet.

Even if the boys don't make mistakes on purpose.

In the locker room there was silence.

It's so cruel to end up like this.

I saw the dejection of the boys, there is nothing to say.

We'll talk about it tomorrow.

Already that

Patrick Kisnorbo (trainer of Troyes) regrets for his part the bad match of his team which collapsed after the opener: “

We made too many mistakes.

When you concede three goals from set pieces it is very difficult to come back afterwards.

There is a lot of frustration.

We lack aggressiveness and we have to change our state of mind.

It is a job that we must do individually and collectively.

Everyone is aware of our situation in the standings


Ajaccio and Clermont are doing well

The Corsicans can consider themselves lucky to bring back the three points of their trip to) Angers after being led for almost an hour.

Olivier Pantaloni (coach of Ajaccio) is delighted with the good operation made in the classification: "

We weren't in the game in the first half, we lost all the duels, we gave them the goal.

We missed the determination we had against Lyon on Sunday.

We feared the worst at halftime.

But we also felt that defensively, there was feverishness on the Angevin side.

The changes have brought a little freshness.

The equalizer gave us a lot of strength and confidence, and it ends in an incredible way.

It's great for us to stop a losing streak and win after being behind.

It's a good thing done, faced with a team that doubted a lot, it was imperative not to return empty-handed to Ajaccio.

We stay in contact and it remains playable for the future


Dominated but eye-catching, Clermont brought back a point from his trip to Lille.

A result that seems to suit the Clermont coach.

Pascal Gastien: “

It's a good point in addition, taken against a very good team, which allows us to pass the 30 mark. We were dominated, sometimes cornered, but without conceding any real big chances.

We showed the values ​​of self-sacrifice, solidarity and discipline, defending intelligently so as not to put ourselves in enormous danger.
