Jean-Louis Gasset, after the elimination of OM in the Europa League: “There is a lack of personality”

“How do you explain this non-match?
It’s inexplicable from one week to the next, on the first leg, we competed with a good team and today to qualify for a final, we were beaten in aggressiveness, all the duels, it It’s a reflection of the season. I’m not saying we had confidence, but a little hope compared to the outward journey, we fell back into our mistakes. We were a little lethargic, like during European away matches.

Have you been disappointed with any of your executives?
It’s not a question of individualizing things, it’s a group that we’ve been living with for two months, who have often done well at the Vélodrome, and not well outside. There is a lack of awareness, of personality which means that only the Vélodrome transcends them.

“I thought we were capable of repeating the performance of the first leg”

Is it possible to recover during the three remaining matches in the Championship?
We experienced evenings at the Vélodrome, at the level of the Championship, OM must finish European next year, we must quickly get back to work, get back to the right place, know that outside it is is insufficient, that we cannot live up to the event, which is damaging for a European Cup semi-final.

Was the step too high?
When we see the first leg, we say to ourselves that there is room, there was hope, we had risen to their level, I thought we were capable of repeating this performance. Tonight, they were stronger, even if we have the 1-1 ball which can turn the match around, in the 50th, that’s all that makes the difference, compared to their one-on-one situation. Atalanta played very aggressively, there are a lot of good players, this club works well. »
