Lyon’s Genesio “We had to do the same thing and we did it”
Lyon boss Bruno Genesio was relieved and pleased as his side cemented the third spot in Ligue 1 with a slim win over Amiens after their rivals won stating “We had to do the same thing and we did it.”
“It was important to win to continue to advance because Lille had won, Montpellier and Nice too. We had to do the same thing and we did it. I think we did it the way we did it. He told the media.
“My team got the ball and the mastery, even if we were countered, that’s normal. We are comfortable in this system (with four defenders) but I think above all that we have more confidence.
“We no longer do things together, whether with or without the ball, which allows us to be more balanced and to have a less risky game.
On the race for the second position in Ligue 1
“It’s too early, there are still 16 games to play and there are teams behind us that advance: Nice, Montpellier, there is also Strasbourg, and Saint-Etienne have not played yet. Marseille is not condemned either. That’s why it was important to win and make a small gap with some pursuers.
