In response to a question from the club’s official media a few moments after the home draw against Cologne (1-1) on the first day of the Europa League conference, OGC Nice coach Lucien Favre remained slightly unsatisfied despite what he considers a good game from his players, He also noted that this European deadline was the first full test for some summer recruits.
“We know we have to play football. Now, someone has to find their rightful position. For some, it was their first full match, as Diop (Soufiane, editor’s note), Bekka Becca (Alexis), Boudaoui (Hisham) played. 70 minutes when he hasn’t played for 2-3 months. Now we have to keep going like this. It’s always positive to play a good game, to come back to score, it’s very important. I was hoping for a little more because we have the chances.
