Eric Roy sees Brest as “a little Lens”!


By: Manu Tournoux

The Stade Brestois coach made strong remarks before the match against Racing Club de Lens, scheduled for this Saturday (9 p.m.).

Crossing paths with Racing Club de Lens on Saturday evening could give Stade Brestois some ideas. Last spring, the Sang et Or concluded a historic season just one point behind Paris Saint-Germain, qualifying for the prestigious Champions League in the process. This second place, Brest captured it this season.

It’s a team that has experienced strong things, which has rediscovered the Champions Leagueunderlined Eric Roy. It’s a team that has a lot of benchmarks, automatisms, has been playing the same score for many months. A team that has seduced French football as a whole for two or three seasons. Everything that happens to them is justified. It is obvious that for us it will be a big challenge to match this opponent on Saturday evening in Bollaert. »

“A little thumb from RC Lens”

The Stade Brestois coach did not shy away from the comparison made by a journalist. Is Brest the RC Lens of this season? “ Unfortunately, we do not have the same means, nor the same structures either. But hey… We’re a little RC Lens then (smile). A little thumbs up from RC Lens…“.

We will try to focus on being a difficult team to play against and one that poses problems to its opponent as we try to do in every match. We know very well that we will certainly have moments in this match where we will suffer. We know their intensity, their aggressiveness. A kind of steamroller that is difficult to stop. It’s up to us to find solutions to also pose problems for them“, concluded the coach of the Breton club.
