Two points from the last three games. Paris FC continues to mark time. On Tuesday, he conceded an incredible 3-3 draw against Niort after leading 2-0, then 3-1 and missing a penalty in the 88th minute. Very angry after this match, René Girard placed his players in front of their responsibilities before the trip to Le Havre this Saturday (3 pm). A team that Paris FC has already beaten twice this season, during the 6th day of L2 (3-0) and during the 8th round of the Coupe de France (1-0) on January 19. Girard will blow some players like Laura, Mandouki and Gakpa, who should not start.
After Niort you said that it was a long time since you were so disappointed after a match. Looking back, are you still in that frame of mind?
René GIRARD. Let’s say I still had a few ridges stuck in the back of my throat for the past 3 days… It hurts. But we must have a reflection on what we lived. The content is far from catastrophic. But when you take three goals from set pieces, it’s because he lacked focus and attention. We really need to grow, we have to go from U15 to adulthood.
How do you explain this tumble after flying over the start of the season?
We were 7 points ahead after 10 days, we are now 9 behind. The observation is implacable. Maybe we thought we had arrived, that we got a little inflamed. This does not concern 2 or 3 players but the whole team. I find that we take too many goals. You have to learn to become a little more rigorous again. But what is most frustrating is that we have never been very far in games. In Grenoble, Troyes, Clermont, Toulouse or Valenciennes, we don’t miss much.

By dint of standing still, do you still believe in the Top 5 or are you not afraid that Paris FC will definitely fall into line?
I believe that nothing is lost. We are still here, in the race. We have the means to aim higher. At least between 3rd and 5th place we can still do it. This is what I keep telling the boys, they must not let go. Above all, we must stop being satisfied with little. There are 15 days left. I don’t want to hear anymore, we should have, we could have … I’m waiting for action.
