Igor Tudor (OM), after the victory against Nantes: “It was a roller coaster”

“Have you, like the public, gone through all the states? Did you think you wouldn’t win after the equalizer and the dismissal?

We weren’t bored, strong emotions, the roller coaster, but in the end it was good times because we won.

Why did you opt for such a defensive starting line-up, with only one real striker?
I do not agree. I think we could have scored three or four goals in the first period, even with all these “defensive” players, as you say. What we missed was only the last gesture. The fans would always like three, four attackers, but the important thing is the balance of the team. To make my compositions, I base myself on training, on what I see of the players during the week and in matches, and the important thing is balance.

“His match (Alexis Sanchez) was very positive”

Mattéo Guendouzi was not successful. Was he playing too close to the goal?
Mattéo only narrowly missed in front of goal. Otherwise he played well, in this role he was good, even if he can obviously play lower.

Are you satisfied with Alexis Sanchez’s first tenure?
Alexis was present on all actions, his game was very positive, but it was good to take him out at this point in the game because it was his first game for a while.

What do you think of the attitude of Ünder, whom you released after the expulsion of Gigot?
It’s never nice to bring a player in and then take them out, but it was necessary. It was for the good of the team and I understand his frustration but if it had to be done again, I would do it again. »
