At SCO, the head is not 100% in football. Asked after the defeat against Lille 2-0 at the microphone of Canal + Sport, Angers coach Stéphane Moulin wanted to give his full support to his president. The club is going through difficult days, since Said Chabane was indicted last Wednesday for “aggravated sexual assault”.
“It is not easy but we face it, we are united in the club, we are all together to overcome this bad passage. We are all behind our president. What is happening on the ground has little to do with it. (…) It cannot leave you insensitive. We try to deal with it, but we are all very tired, we need to recover. We need to recharge our batteries, to empty our heads. We start a cycle from Monday, “he said.
“The players, the staff, all the people who make up the staff are not robots or machines. Obviously we are affected. Tonight, I support the players loud and clear. We don’t shoot an ambulance. We are touching on something very sensitive, we must be very careful not to fall into emotion. The players are exhausted, tired, me with it. We are close to our president, the president is close to his players and staff and it touches us. ”
“[Mais Lille n’était] not the right opponent to be able to hope to do something considering all that. We came across a team that is far superior to us (…). I have nothing to reproach the players for, they gave the maximum of what they could give. ”
But, the SCO coach since 2011 wanted to minimize this bad pass from his club, insisting that there was no “sports crisis”.
