Peter Bosz looked back at OL’s stunning defeat to OGC Nice. To end his team’s recurring slackness at the end of the game, he gave firm instructions.
OL: Bosz, “we take too many goals and lose too many points at the end of the game”
Knocked down by OGC Nice on the 11th matchday of Ligue 1, OL are still reeling. The team of Peter Bosz had a real nightmare at the Allianz Riviera on Sunday. She led (2-0) until the 80th, but lost the match (3-2) in the closing moments. Taking into account the extra time, the Gones conceded 3 goals in the space of 13 minutes, in addition to the red card taken by Tino Kadewere (85e) for a stupid foul in the Gym camp. Back on this defeat, the coach of theOlympique Lyonnais no longer wishes to relive the catastrophic end of his team’s match in Nice.
“The last ten minutes are very bad, it must not happen. After Nice’s first goal, we take a red card, a penalty and the third goal in 12-13 minutes. It can’t happen to a team like ours”, he said on OL TV. “Six red cards (this season, editor’s note), it can’t happen, neither can Tino’s. We take too many goals and lose too many points at the end of the game, it’s factual. If we can play this way for 80 minutes, we must know how to do it for 90 minutes, or even 95 if necessary,” lamented the Dutch technician.
“Working on collective strength”
To bounce back quickly in Ligue 1 and make the remontada Nice forget, Peter Bosz announced the color. “It’s our fault, and we’ll discuss it. We’ll work on it.”, he said. The secret plan of the coach of the Rhone club is to work on the collective. “We worked a lot on it (the collective force, editor’s note). Honestly, at the beginning of the season I was not satisfied with the quality of the game. At the moment, we see another OL, who plays well together, who presses high. We have made a lot of progress”, reassured Rudi Garcia’s successor.
The promise of the Lyonnais coach
The Lyonnais are 9th with 16 points, but they are only 3 points behind the 3rd place of the podium, precisely occupied by their tormentor, the OGC Nice by Christophe Galtier. Enough to feed hope in Peter Bosz. “We are not in the place we want, but we are not far from the podium in the championship. It’s very tight. We have to win our games first, then we’ll see. But I am sure that at the end of the season we will not be ninth,” he said.
