Benzema’s bad pass

“It is inevitable that it affects us, it is very important for us. It hasn’t reached last year’s level and that affects us. In the second half of the season, he was important and he will be even more so. We are not talking about a player who must reach an optimal level. We are convinced that he will help us. »

Ferland Mendy and the possibility of seeing Eduardo Camavinga in his place

“We are all doing to make sure he is available on Wednesday. Mendy will train with the team on Sunday to be available on Wednesday. I see Camavinga as a midfielder and in an emergency he can play on the left side.”

Kylian Mbappe

“Mbappe? You can ask me that question tomorrow, today or in two months. That’s a question I’ll never answer.”

The critics

“I don’t need to go back to 2015. When there are more difficult times, the criticism begins. There were also last year. Every year passes, it’s my job. »
