On his game philosophy

“I like to attack contrary to what you think. It doesn’t necessarily mean having the ball. Ideally we all want to do like Guardiola, but I stopped dreaming. I like having a team that can create danger, go forward, score goals. That’s what drives me. Many have a hard time standing still. I coached the team: Guingamp, Lens, Toulouse, Dijon… When I came to Nantes we are in a difficult situation, we play to avoid relegation.

After working on it, we’ll see what it’s worth as a human being.
