Lucien Favre sounds the alarm after the defeat

The defeat against Monaco appears to have been too much for Lucien Favre to bear. Unable to create a danger on the grass, OGC Nice logically conceded defeat to AS Monaco during the derby on Sunday evening (1-0). After six contested days and ambitious recruiting, the Aiglons finished 16th with just one win over the clock. If the balance sheet was far from worrisome at the start of the tournament, the technical content of the Cote d’Azur was particularly bothered.

“Yeah (it was a disappointing match). In terms of play. We don’t keep the ball enough, we don’t know how to roll it. Technically, we lose a lot of the ball. In the price cuts, it’s also difficult. We’re good without the ball. That’s a little bit too much. When you put pressure like that, you must have calls on the side or in the deep. We lost it.”First fell into a microphone Prime videobefore discussing individual cases.

Favre asks his players for more

“If I want my players? Of course not. But we have to play faster. And you have to feel the same football at the same time. The problem is that there are players who are made for this system, and there are some of them who are made for others. Labordelaort? It’s a possibility, we’ll see. In Sometimes we play very slowly, we take a long time to control the ball. It is not possible. Thuram was a little tired, it must be said, we go into a series of matches. But it must be said that Rosario was not very good.The Swiss director added.

A note also shared by Andy Delort, who was unable to hit the target during this meeting. “We came back too far, we didn’t set our foot on the ball. The pattern was good, but we were too low. We knew they were in trouble on the crosses, but there wasn’t much. Even without the ball, the recovery from the drop started and we bothered the midfield ( …) We have to do better at home.”The attacker added. It will first be necessary to earn confidence in the Europa League conference, against Cologne, this Thursday (6:45pm).
