Sonia Bompastor, after OL’s defeat against Barça in the Champions League: “The disappointment is great”

Sonia Bompastor (coach of Olympique Lyonnais after the defeat in the Champions League final against FC Barcelona): “The disappointment is great. Losing a final is tough. We must recognize that Barcelona had a very good match, they deserve this title. I am disappointed for my players, we have worked a lot. We would have liked to end this season with a new title and a new Champions League.

(on his personal situation) This is not the time to talk about it, I am very disappointed and that is what predominates. It will be necessary to take a step back to analyze it cold. In this type of match, the details are important, especially offensive efficiency. This evening (SATURDAY)in our highlights we missed some.

“I congratulate Barcelona for their title, but also for the popular fervor around the team, it is an example to follow in women’s football. »

In these matches, it can be a turning point. There are certainly other parameters, I will wait until I analyze the match properly before discussing them. We had a very precise game plan, especially on the defensive aspects, even if we had a little difficulty getting the ball. It’s never easy to reach a final. In the end, the context meant that Barcelona led 1-0, they fell back, we pushed, we did not convert our opportunities. The entry of Amel (Majri) and the 3-5-2 gave us momentum and energy, it was not enough.

I congratulate Barcelona for their title, but also for the popular fervor around the team, it is an example to follow in women’s football. I imagine what the players can experience with 50,000 Barcelona people behind them. Bravo for this popular craze. It’s a good example to follow, it’s up to us to try to achieve the same result in France. »
