Coupe de France: Sochaux “gave people pride”, retains Tanchot despite defeat against Rennes

“We gave people pride,” underlined Sochaux coach Oswald Tanchot despite the heavy defeat against Rennes (6-1) on Tuesday in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France. “This audience is extraordinary,” breathed Tanchot after the meeting. He deserves to be saluted and I'm happy that Julien Stéphan (the coach of Rennes, Editor's note) did it. It’s a real advertisement for the values ​​of the Coupe de France.”

Back with his players in the locker room, Tanchot wanted to encourage his men for the rise to Ligue 2. “Have you seen what is in the stands? (...) People really deserve it, I'm moved this evening. We can’t leave this club here, we all have a mission.”

The humiliation suffered by the Doubiste club did not diminish the joy of the Franche-Comté supporters, unleashed, who notably celebrated their club's only goal, a penalty, as a victory. Their greatest success had come six months earlier, when the FCSM had narrowly escaped bankruptcy, saved by local investors, local authorities and even a group of supporters, the Sociochaux, who took ownership and governance.
