Girondins4Ever only play possession with eleven players keeping the ball? No. You need a balance… If the club listens to me, we will make a very competitive team.”

Before the meeting between theUS Concarneau and the Girondins de Bordeaux, counting for the 37th and penultimate day of Ligue 2, Albert Will laugh,
Bordeaux coach, spoke during the traditional pre-match press conference. There was talk that Pedro Diaz and Gaétan Weissbeck were similar players in midfield and that it might be a duplicate.

“I believe there are never exactly the same players. Profiles that look a little similar yes, but not exactly the same. I am not comparing Pedro and Gaétan. In addition we play with a three-way environment, where two can have a bit of the same profile and the other is different. It’s the same for attackers. We play with an attacker and with two second attackers behind. If both are exactly the same, there will be a deficit. These are attackers who will look for the ball, combine, look for depth. If for example you have Livolant who goes deep, you will miss this connection with the environment. So you need different profiles. But in the three midfielders, if there are two who are a bit similar, who are dominant in the game… Pedro and Gaétan are dominant players so they can combine. It does a lot of good.”

Then Issouf Sissokho and Mathias De Amorim were mentioned. They are players capable of making long runs, who are more athletic, unlike Gaétan Weissbeck who is more similar to Pedro Diaz, a ball player.

If Issouf or Mathias would be more complementary with Pedro? Yeah that’s true. The reflection that I said last week, when I said that I knew what was needed for Bordeaux, to achieve the objective, Ligue 2, Ligue 1… We will think about the objective of Ligue 2, to win this championship. There needs to be balance and complementarity between the players. You think I just want to play possession with eleven players keeping the ball? No. You need balance and I understand that. That’s why I said I know what the team needs. If the club listens to me, we will make a very competitive team.”
