“Now, the double, everyone has it in mind”
” To be honest, we didn’t expect to play a second final in a row. We don’t think about it anyway when we start this competition. Of course, we want to win the matches to defend the title and keep the Cup for as long as possible, but from there to imagine coming back to the final… Personally, I hadn’t thought of that at the start. The click happened after the quarter-final victory against Lens at home, behind closed doors. It was then, before playing the semi-final against Lyon still at home, that we obviously thought about it. Now the double, everyone has it in mind, that’s for sure “, dropped Ludovic Blas.
“Why not go down in history? »
The player of FC Nantes then added: Already, achieving the feat of returning to the final is remarkable. So why not go down in history as twenty years ago (consecutive successes of FC Nantes in 1999 and 2000)? Lifting the trophy a second time in a row is what I wish for everyone. And that can give us additional strength to then finish the championship well and seek maintenance. “.
