Laurent Blanc, OL Lyon Olympique Lyonnais

Sunday evening, OL lost against OM at Groupama Stadium. Laurent Blanc estimated after the match that his team deserved to take the point of the draw.

Again questioned at a press conference, Laurent Blanc maintained his opinion on the result which he considered severe: “We analyzed the game against OM… You’re going to tell me that I’m not objective, but I watched the game twice and we beat them in the first half, we could have come away with a draw. Besides, OM would have accepted the 1-1 I think in the end, they were satisfied with that. Then, we took this goal by touching the ball three times, it’s cruel. We looked at it this morning with the players. »

“We are not going to make the players gain 10 cm and 10 kg”

The technician thinks that his team shows a deficit in the athletic aspect. “It’s not just in Nantes that we haven’t succeeded. Even against Marseille we had difficulty in the commitment. Our profile is like that. We are not going to make the players take 10 cm and 10 kg. I tell the boys, there’s no point in going into physical combat.he added.

OL will try to revive against Strasbourg on Friday, on behalf of the 33rd day of Ligue 1. The Alsatians remain on two consecutive successes, against Ajaccio and Reims, but remain threatened by relegation. Four teams stand within 1 point, from 14th to 17th place.

As a reminder, OL currently occupy 7th place in the Ligue 1 standings, 6 points from their goal, 5th position held by Lille. The club of Jean-Michel Aulas and John Textor could experience a new season without the European Cup, next season.
