Fonte recognizes tensions in the Dogues locker room

The draw (0-0) conceded this Saturday by Lille against the red lantern, Bordeaux, which had always conceded at least one goal this season in Ligue 1, has a little tense the locker room of LOSC.

Lille had a golden opportunity to come back to Nice and Rennes, who had neutralized themselves (1-1) earlier in the day in Ligue 1. The Northerners received Bordeaux, dead last in the standings. A team that also made it easier for them with the exclusion of Kwateng from the 35th. And yet, even 11 against 10 for an hour, Lille never found the solution, the two teams finally leaving on a sad match (0-0) draw which does not help anyone. The podium, synonymous with the Champions League, is a little further away for the Mastiffs.

José Fonte wants to turn the page

“It was tense in the locker room, admitted José Fonte in the mixed zone. It’s a normal situation of tension. Everyone wants to win, to be successful. We will also talk tomorrow morning to see what we can do with better.”

The LOSC captain and central defender admitted that the atmosphere was warm between the players. “It’s normal when you don’t win a game that you have to win. It’s always difficult. We need to win the next game, he insists. We will focus on this objective, take the three points. Bordeaux, it’s over, we can’t do anything more. We can only win against Angers, which would allow us to forget this match.”

Jocelyn Gourvennec, coach of the Dogues, regretted the lack of spontaneity and efficiency of his players after the meeting. “We score three times, there are three times offside, but it’s pointless. There’s a bit of awkwardness, lack of accuracy and lack of success. We had imprecise play and we lacked spontaneity. “, even if we put the pressure. We lack efficiency, that’s our problem tonight (Saturday). It’s a poor performance because we have to do better than that against the 20th. It’s a hitch, we will have to recover these points lost elsewhere to finish higher.”
