Franck Haise is the beIN Sports journalist!

Obviously delighted with the scenario of the meeting against Sevilla FC, the RC Lens coach was acidic with the beIN special correspondent in Bollaert.

RC Lens did not miss the opportunity. Eliminated from the race for the Champions League since its disaster on the Arsenal pitch (6-0), the Sang et Or had in fact one last effort to give to validate its ticket for the Europa League: a draw was enough against Sevilla FC in Bollaert to continue their European adventure. And despite the domination of the Andalusians, especially in the first period, the Lensois did better by snatching victory in added time.

“We are going to play this match with the idea of ​​winning it, had warned the Artesian technician on the eve of the match. I want my players to develop with confidence, to take the initiative to win it. Afterwards if we have to draw 0-0, we will draw 0-0. Even if we are not a management team, we know how to be pragmatic when necessary. » And after having folded for a long time without breaking, the vice-champions of France actually showed pragmatism against the winner of the last Europa League.

Franck Haise nevertheless hardly appreciated the questions from the beIN Sports journalist after the meeting, clearly making fun of him. “Did I ask my players to play 0-0 in the first half? Exactly, you understood everything, once again. And at the break, I told them to win the match, and they won it. There you go, football isn’t complicated.” he said ironically, adding when asked if his players were timid in the first period: “You know, there are some great opponents in the Champions League, I don’t know if you watch the games often, and Sevilla is one of them. They were better than us in the first half and fortunately, we managed to loosen the grip. Its not always easy. »
