Present on Friday at a press conference, Dimitri Payet spoke about the return of Rudi Garcia to Marseille on Sunday night, this time as coach of Olympique Lyonnais.
"It's true that it's weird to see him in the opposite camp. A few months ago, we received Lyon and in view of his talk about the players, the Lyon supporters, the Lyon president, it's strange that he postulates three months later for this club. He did well, since he is there, launched the attacking midfielder. We should not put our feelings in a match like that, it could make us thwart. We have to put it in a corner of our head to use it, to boost it. We must not be thwarted. I would not go into detail. This is not the goal either. But I would not like him to talk about us like that."The 32-year-old footballer admits he does not have a lasting memory of the native of Nemours. "It's mixed. I do not forget the year of the European Cup. Behind that year, it was difficult. Our reports have deteriorated. I do not forget it either. I'm here today. There were times when it was rather hot, a communication that did not pass, headaches. I have a character that is strong enough and it did not help either. We did not separate on good terms."The message can not be clearer.
