BALL - Bosch and sending off Anthony Lopez: "Everyone is in a bad position" (Lyon)

Hello coach. Lyon, Peter Bosch, has refused to hold Anthony López directly responsible for the offer that saw his team beat Ajaccio 2-0 in the first leg of Ligue 1 this Friday at the Groupama stadium in the French city. “rammed” in the 27th minute in an ill-timed exit and intimidating entry by El Idrissi, which resulted in a 1-2 score in favor of the guests and the sending off of the 31-year-old Portuguese player, leaving his team in the minority.

However, Bosh acknowledged that this was the kind of play in a team that seemed poised to smash, and which, after nearly 3-0 down, ended up with a 2-1 indirect advantage and a numerical disadvantage on the field (ten to eleven). Ajaccio players, with the “red” Portuguese), “can’t happen”.

“We could have played better, but this red card… To be honest, you win 2-0 and ‘this’ happens? It wasn’t good, it can’t be, it can’t be! First, from Anto[ny Lopes]. But attention, we were all badly positioned, especially the defense. Not only him, ”the coach told reporters at the end, whose words are quoted by footmercato.net.

“Everything went so well, but you can’t always go after 3-0, balancing in attack. So red card [a Anthony Lopes] made a shock impression, ”admitted the 58-year-old Dutch coach, who came to Ol. Lyon in 2021 from Bayer Leverkusen (Germany), and himself a former midfielder for the Netherlands national team (eight caps).

“Fortunately, even before the break, Ajaccio was also reduced to ten. Then we manage the game well. Finishing eighth in Ligue 1 is not possible again: we have to score all the points at home, these fans deserve it,” concluded Peter Bosch, still cowardly and not specifically pointing the finger at the Portuguese player, who is already 22 years old. Lyon, the club he joined as a child, in 2000 (22 years ago!), having spent four seasons in the B-team (from 2008 to 2012) and defending the emblem for a decade, almost always already as a team captain. .

A BOLA - Benfica with an atypical pre-season but no Super Cup excuse (women's football)

It is on the field number 1 of the Benfica campus in Seixal that the official women’s national football season will begin this Wednesday at 17:30, when Benfica hosts Braga for the Super Cup.

This season, the top four players from the last BPI league will compete for the trophy, facing each other in a semi-final system, followed by the final scheduled for the 26th at 20:30 in Leiria.

Philippa Patao announced the match at the José Martins Vieira Stadium in Almada. “We can count on a prepared team or trying to do our best given the somewhat atypical pre-season we’ve had. Since we are at Benfica, there are no excuses, we have done everything possible to ensure that the entire squad is at the same level, in the same form. They did a great job, they were flawless,” praised the coach.

“We will fight and I am sure they will give a great answer in the first official competition. The main challenge for our players is to understand that they will have to adapt a lot more to the game, it depends a lot on their understanding of the game itself and the involvement that is going on. We will also do our job to convey as much information as possible. In the end, this is a good test of the adaptability they can have in the game,” he stressed.

Philippa Patao considers this semi-final to be “a good challenge and also a moment of growth”. “For our part, we should focus more on who we are, on our principles and dynamics, and then try to adapt that in the game. We are very focused on getting trophies, although we know that even in terms of timing it is not ideal, given that we have Champions League qualification ahead of us, but it is a great goal.

“We want to win everything, so we have to do everything to win. We usually tell these players that if they want to win and be happy for Benfica, they will have to fight for Benfica on the pitch as well. That’s where we need our biggest strength, the fans who are sure to give us another push when needed. I know that game time is not attractive, but I am sure that these girls deserve it,” she assured with conviction.

A BOLA - Esgayo support wave (Sporting)

Ricardo Esgayo has become the main target of criticism from Sporting fans, who even before the end of the game with Braga (3: 3) invaded the right-back’s social networks.

Criticism aside, it was the insults, posted even on personal photos, that prompted the defender to deactivate his Instagram account and later Facebook, the social network that yesterday hosted Núcleo do Sporting da Nazaré, Ricardo’s birthplace. Esgayo joined the wave of support for the athlete.

“We are with you! We know that in good times and bad, no one wants everything to go well, more than you. like Mr. [Rúben] Amorim, we believe in you. We support all our athletes at all times, in wins, losses and draws. The strength of Ricardo Esgayo, keep working and believing! Sporting fans from Nazaré and Núcleo Sporting Clube de Portugal da Nazaré are with you,” wrote Núcleo.

In addition to Núcleo, Ugarte also responded to criticism of Esgayo on the social network Twitter. “How easy it is to criticize without showing your face. How easy it is to hide behind an anonymous account. At least have the courage to use your account,” the Uruguayan midfielder wrote, and even Thiago Thomas, who is now at Stuttgart, reacted to the episode: “2022 and they still think it is.”
