But behind, his strike was repelled by Nübel, who could not then prevent Maxence Caqueret from scoring.

After the meeting, Rayan Cherki returned to this high-class action, which he could have concluded with a little more accuracy in front of goal. The Espoirs international also spoke about his relationship with his coach Laurent Blanc.

“He is very hard on me”

“He said to me ‘you are stupid, on this one you are supposed to put the goal of the year’. He’s not wrong. He is very hard on me. It’s for my good, thus named the young Lyonnais at the microphone of Prime Video. On a relationship that I never had with other coaches. That’s what he brings me, happiness and the envy of all thunder. Of course I accept (Blanc’s criticisms). I don’t know why, people put a label on me as a guy who has no requirements when I have a requirement just as hard as that of the coach with myself. I take them with difficulty and I do everything to prove them wrong. When the coach speaks, I do everything to listen to the letter and tell him that when he says things a little less well, he was wrong. »
