Gourvennec calls Yilmaz to order and has a good surprise with Ben Arfa before PSG

Zapping But! Football Club LOSC: Les Dogues’ journey in the Europa League

In full, LOSC could well bother PSG tomorrow at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium (8:45 p.m.) if it has the good idea to put itself in Champions League mode. In Brest, on January 22, this was not the case (0-2) with in particular an angry gesture from Burak Yilmaz to the attention of Jocelyn Gourvennec when he left. Since then, the Dogues coach has called his Turkish striker to order.

“There was this nervousness but no other in the locker room. Once the match was over, it was over. We talked about it again with a clear head. This will be an important element for the second part of the season because we want to take up the challenges, he explained. We are not where we would like in the standings but it is very close. We’re going to need to control our nerves. I often talk about controlling your emotions and having self-control in games. We often have them but here we have shown flaws. We will have to remember that because we can’t afford any flaws in our second half of the season. »

To recover a little health, nothing better than being able to count on the services of a Hatem Ben Arfa who could already have returned to his top physical level. After bluffing Benjamin André, the former PSG crack stuck Gourvennec. “He shows very good athletic ability, he has good feelings, he smiled. He will be even better in the coming weeks by playing and training regularly. It’s true that it’s a good surprise to see him at this level after this break. It will be interesting for us. »
