Stade français coach Karim Ghezal said he was “disappointed”, especially for the supporters, on Saturday, after the eighth consecutive defeat at home against Racing 92 (13-9), but assured that he wanted to use it “to continue to advance".
“It’s the first time for me, I’ve been here for three weeks, but it’s still difficult,” declared the former member of the Blues staff, who arrived in Paris with Laurent Labit, at a press conference. “So very disappointed, it was an important moment of the season for us. We really wanted to win this match for all our supporters,” he added, while the Pink Soldiers have not won at home against Racing since 2017.
According to him, Stade Français “had the opportunities at the end to score”. “But when you chase the score like we did, it was difficult,” said Karim Ghezal, without questioning the choices of his players to go into touch rather than take the scrum, while the Parisians were dominant in this sector of the game. “I would have preferred that we lost another match and won this one but we have to use it to continue moving forward,” he said. judge.
