Jean-Louis Gasset hailed the progress made by his team after the victory of Saint-Etienne against Reims (2-0), this Saturday.
Jean-Louis Gasset (coach of Saint-Etienne, winner 2-0 of Reims) "To lead 2-0 at halftime is not miraculous but it is effective. Then, the control of the match pleased me. As soon as the opponent had less juice to be precise, we achieved some beautiful things that would have deserved a third goal. We tried. There were a few situations like two great opportunities for Rémy Cabella.
The team is progressing well. The second period is what I like in collective play and technical mastery. We knew it would be difficult to make two straight victories. We took three points against Angers and we take three again against Reims conceding few goals. To put two goals for him means that we arrive. We must remember the second period on the game and the first for realism. The black spot is the injury of Loïc Perrin who felt a tip behind the thigh on his last sprint. "
