It was the first match for Jocelyn Prêcheur, 42, at the helm of PSG women, after his appointment this week in the wake of the departure of his father Gérard. History will remember that it was a defeat (1-0), but a good match among the recent PSG-OL.
What is the dominant feeling after such a match?
Jocelyn Preacher. Disappointment. A defeat is a defeat. Frustration prevails. So, of course, there were also some sources of satisfaction. We showed good things from time to time. But we have to take a step forward and progress if we want to play at the top of the table.
You stumbled on a super Endler...
Yes, at OL, there is level everywhere. Endler had a big game. Constance (Picaud, the Parisian goalkeeper) too. This week, I tried to instill a new mindset. We have to do more mentally, we have to go all out when we decide to project ourselves, we have to put presence in the surface. We saw it in the first half but it was only at times. We have to be more consistent if we want to go further. It's frustrating because the score is minimal. But the "We're not far away", etc., are things we want to hear more. We need to be more crazy, especially at home.

On a personal level, how did you experience this premiere on the bench?
Good, but we are in the game, we are in the analysis. The problem here is that you can't communicate with the players at all, even though I've been blown away. And otherwise, it goes too fast, especially when we are leading 1-0 ...
How do you see the future cohabitation between Chawinga and Katoto in the coming months?
Tabitha has been here for ten days, I know her and I know she is capable of more. She, too, must try more. She was very selfless, which I can understand from a player who has just arrived. But in the long term, it is clear that it will be necessary to think about putting something in place between Marie-Antoinette and her.
Katoto came on for the last quarter of an hour, when will she start again?
Good question. When a player comes back like her from a long injury, there are stages. They should not be burned, even if it is tempting. There, she played a few minutes again in a high-intensity match. I told him to let go. She is an exceptional player, we all want to see her at the top. When she returns to her full physical potential, consideration will be given to reviving her as a starter.
