On the eve of the eighth-finals of the Coupe de France between Red Star and OL, Rudi Garcia did not hesitate to shake up his players in front of the press.
The tone is set: Rudi Garcia expects a reaction of pride from his team after the draw conceded in Lens (1-1) last weekend. A result that follows a setback against Paris and another draw in front of Reims in the league. This Wednesday on the eve of the match of his OL against the Red Star, as part of the knockout stages of the Coupe de France, the Lyon technician has therefore knowingly mistreated his players on the media scene.

It is imperative to regain victory. “” The most important criticisms are those made internally, that is to say self-criticism, the fact of seeing what can be improved, he concludes. But several days after the match at Lens, I don’t change my mind that everything was played in the penalty areas. We should have been more efficient there. I am waiting for action. We must act, and be effective. “
