Managers’ reaction

Antoine Kombouaré, FC Nantes coach: “My players are seriously ill! What they are doing is exceptional! I really want to congratulate them. I asked the boys to be monstrous to win. ‘have been.

“The supporters suffered a lot. It is true that under the presidency of Kita, it was not easy for the supporters. They did like me, they compartmentalised. I don’t always get on very well with the president. But I put aside, and what interests me is to wear the colours of FC Nantes.

Bruno Genesio, Stade Rennais coach: “The podium? There is nothing finished. There are still 6 points to take. We have lost 12 matches and I think it’s far too many for the moment, explained the technician. (Compared to the reaction hot from Hamari Traoré) We must not throw everything away. It’s a non-match tonight, but we’ve had a lot of good matches in the season. We’re hosting Marseille on Saturday (J37), we have to show another face in front of our public. Do I still believe in the UCL? Yes, it’s not over. It’s normal to be disappointed, we came to catch up with the top three, play an extraordinary goal at the end of the season. We have two days to get our ideas and head straight and play OM to 100% of our possibilities, as we have often done at home, and win this match to hope.”
