How was Kylian Mbappe this morning in training? And what about what happened yesterday?

"It's very difficult to express myself about this, but it obviously concerns Kylian and the club. Kylian was in very good vibes working this morning, he was smiling, he cut short the training session with hip discomfort, but that will not compromise his participation against Nice. I know there have been a lot of discussions between management and Kylian. The incident or misunderstanding is cleared up."

What diagnosis do you make of the team's bad run?

"I have my share of responsibility, the coach and his staff, but the players too. When I spoke with the players at the beginning of the week, I mentioned the shares of responsibility, but once that's done, what can we do? The president spoke to everyone this morning, not just the players. I obviously feel concerned by the president's speech. It shows that we cannot continue in this situation. It was a fairly clear and precise speech for everyone. Me too. You have to stay focused on work and have a fair analysis of bad times. Work, look for solutions, make sure that the players also react, and do not blame it all on so and so. We are all responsible for what happens. Victory belongs to everyone."

When you spoke to the players, did you get feedback and a guaranteed commitment?

"It wasn't a dialogue, it was a speech or a precise clarification of the situation. I met a few players one-on-one to clear things up and share my ideas. There is the group, and also the individual cases. I spoke with some. Were there any exchanges in the locker room? I'm not in the locker room. I do not know. On the other hand, everyone trained well this week."
