This is the end of this press conference.
Meeting between the players and the president, tensions, delicate preparation… Dimitri Payet and Igor Tudor swept the hot news from OM.
A style of play adapted to Ligue 1?
Tudor: “It depends on the style we are up against. We may have play problems in transition from a team that has fast players. But we will also have to find solutions to maneuver tighter teams.”
Tudor: “It’s a good template, but it will continue to be supplemented.”
Group update for Sunday
Tudor: “All are available.”
Towards a scheme with two players in support of a single attacker?
Tudor: “The system comes second. The important thing is the style. How you move, the mentality, the physique.”
Did you find it difficult to convey your demands in relation to Italy?
Tudor: “There are necessarily differences compared to what I experienced in Italy. But, in the end, it’s always work. The difference is not in the country but in the coach’s methods. “I’ve always believed in tiredness, real tiredness. . Teams with vertical play and intensity get better results. Against AC Milan, we played against a team that has the game that we want to implement. His team was built in three years. At the beginning of their journey, they lost 5-0 against Atalanta.”
What is the readiness assessment?
Tudor: “We work well, I get along very well with the players. The preparation was short. Four or five players arrived late, I only worked two or three weeks with some of them. I have been training for 10 years. There is always a difference between the preparation and official matches. My style is very different from the previous coach. You can win in many different ways. It will take time to get used to it in terms of style, but we had a good week of preparation.”
How was the meeting with Longoria and the players?
Tudor: “It’s a private thing. It was good to do it. We had a good week of work, with a good mindset for the game ahead.”
It’s Tudor’s turn
The Croatian coach succeeds Payet.
About stadium security
Payet: “Finally a good question (smiles). I was hoping they would ask me. I was the happiest to see this decision made in relation to what I experienced. Violence in the stadiums. This is the beginning of something. Congratulations to the League. “
The sage in the locker room since Mandanda’s departure?
Payet: “That’s what I’ve been trying to do for two years. I think we have a healthy group. When you have a locker room like that, it’s easier to manage. I also have to manage my personal performances. I’m not the social worker to solve wardrobe problems.
Payet: “Another face than the one shown against Milan”
Payet: “We will have to show a different face than the one we showed against Milan, because we are in real competition here. Beyond the road, the most important thing will be to take the three points.”
What is the key to success this season?
Payet: “The Champions League is still at its peak in terms of intensity, of course we leave some juice there. We can count on a quality squad. We have an expanded group. It’s up to us that everyone responds when the coach needs us”.
Was he worried after the friendly matches?
Payet: “We were worried when we saw that we couldn’t transcribe what we were working on in training. But that’s what friends are for.”
Payet: “The institution goes above and beyond”
Payet: “The institution goes above everything else. There has been a change of course. It’s up to us, the players, to adapt to that.”
Payet in the Tudor method
Payet: “These are new methods for us. It’s another way of working. We work hard. We need to digest this preparation that has been very heavy. We managed to understand and implement the way we want to play. The coach.
“He is a coach who wants seriousness, work and demand. He is completely normal. I was the first to ask to find solutions to increase our demands”.
About the meeting he would have requested with Tudor
Payet: “Dimitri Payet never asked to see the president. There is no meeting requested, neither to me nor to any player. Pablo Longoria came to see us to take stock of the preparation, what he expected of us and the objectives of the season” I know that Dimitri Payet sells, we try to destabilize ourselves, but everything is clear internally.
Does the group live well?
Payet: “The group works well anyway. We work very hard. But yes, we have the same atmosphere as last year. Everything is fine.”
