Stade Rennes lost for the third time in its last five matches in Ligue 1, in Lorient, this Friday evening (1-2).

Bruno Genesio, Stade Rennais Rennes

In the post-match press conference, Bruno Genesio, the coach of the Bretons, first of all assumed his share of the responsibility for the bad luck of his team, even if, in the last five games, the Rennais won two. : “This is the third defeat (in a row, away) which strangely resembles the other two, in Reims and Clermont. It is also catastrophic, with the same shortcomings. The one who chooses the system and the players is me, so the first person in charge is me. But I will make sure that changes. When we have ambitions like those of our club, we cannot afford to play only 45 minutes.

The Rennais compared to “tourists”

Bruno Genesio pointed out the attitude of his players, especially in the first half: “At the level of the commitment, between the first and the second period, it is day and night. We started the game like tourists! The system can be an explanation, it is not an excuse. With this system, 15 days ago, we beat Paris. In football, there are fundamentals to respect. When you don’t win any balls, you lose all the duels, whatever the system, it can’t work.

After beating PSG 1-0 on January 15, in 5-4-1, Rennes repeated this tactical scheme, without success, against FC Lorient. With this defeat in the Breton derby, Stade Rennes, 5th, sees its opponent of the day, 6th, come back to 2 points, while 4th and 3rd, Monaco and OM, face off this Saturday evening. Monaco has as many points as Rennes, but Marseille has 5 more, with one game less.
