FC Sochaux – Rodez: 1-0
“I’m relieved to win because that was the goal. Everything was not perfect but the victory is important. We purred in the first half, we had trouble getting into the right areas. It was a bit wobbly, it lacked dynamism, technical accuracy. The attacking players were too high and there was a lack of people in the heart of the game. We were able to readjust at half-time and it was better in the second period. »
“Rodez had situations in the first half, but we still have 65% possession and 12 shots on arrival. Maxence (Prévot) made the necessary stop to allow us not to chase after the score. The entry of Gaétan Weissbeck? He brought quality, technical accuracy, availability and that unblocked the situation. »
“This but will do good to Aldo (Kalulu), he was waiting for it. It’s a great reward. Not everything was perfect in his match, but also on request of an attaché to be efficient. Our offensive sector did not do what I expected but the 3 points are important. It’s a good evening in the standings, a lot of teams have been stuck. There are 22 games left and not the least and we will still have to make much more substantial content at home to aim for things ”.
Didier Santini (Rodez coach): “We could have killed the match in the first half”
“We did very good things, we could have killed the game in the first half. We backed off a little at the end, without being in too much danger, and unfortunately we got into it on our own. If you are not a killer in both surfaces, you are penalized, especially against such a team. We made them doubt but we really have to be more killer. Before the but, it was consistent. But in the second half, we put ourselves too low and we defended less well and the entrants did not have enough effort in my eyes. There is nothing to be ashamed of this defeat, but we leave disappointed”.
