It was over 35 degrees this Saturday afternoon, August 14, on the stadium lawn.
Mathieu Chabert, Bastia coach: “Playing under these conditions is a scandal. I invite broadcasters who schedule a game at 3pm on a weekend of August 15 to go for a run at 3pm on August 15. To see how he feels. I admire my players, they are good men. Even I am about to fall into the apples. The show is not there. “
Brecht Dejaegere, midfielder and TFC captain (at the microphone of beIN Sport): “Playing in this heat was very difficult. For both teams. Personally, I had more difficulty driving in the first half. In the second it was better. But, yes, very difficult circumstances. During the next matches, we will have to improve.” Manage the end of the matches. We left the ball too much in Bastia, on long balls they could create danger. Compared to last year, we are better in terms of accounting position. The mindset never ends. When things don’t “You always work 100%, you have to trust that. Again, you don’t take a goal. You have to focus to do more. I play in the next matches.”
Philippe Montanier, TFC coach (on the microphone of beIN Sport): “It’s the third game in a row without conceding a goal. We received very few chances. We managed to have real situations in the second half, Nathan (Ngoumou) makes good calls … Afterwards, you have to be efficient, that’s where you fish. We have real opportunities to score and we must take advantage of them. With 2-0, that changes the game and we can be a little more liberated. The team has changed a lot. 70% of the team that started last year is gone. We have recruits who did not prepare with us. We have injuries … All of that satisfies us anyway. Despite all these penalty parameters, we still managed to score points even if we aspired to improve. ”
