“We do not have the right to think, only even to think, that we are going to descend.


"I'm not worried about the minds of the players"

The striker, like his coach, clings to what he saw positive this Sunday.

That is a great reaction of pride when Racing… was led 3-0 in the 50th minute of play. “The situation could have started live and the boys hung on.

We did not let go […] I am not worried about the mentality of the players ”, supports Thierry Laurey, rather satisfied with the performance of his men,“ except for these abominable four minutes ”.

These took place just after the break, while Stefan Mitrovic's partners were already led 1-0 after the header from a corner from Laborde (36 ').

In two actions, the game turned into a nightmare.

First when Delort beat Djiku with a decisive pass from Hilton of more ... 70 meters (0-2, 46th)!

"It's quite amazing, he did it by wanting to release a ball," plague the technician from Strasbourg before welcoming the third achievement of the MHSC.

Namely an acrobatic return from Laborde after two failed clearances from Mitrovic and Dijku (0-3, 50 ').

"These are not the kind of goals you will see every weekend ..."

During the last minute of added time, the hope of a miraculous draw even arose.

Before quickly disappearing.
