Genesio (Rennes) avant le match à Lille : « Se concentrer sur ce qu’on maîtrise »

“Like many teams, Rennes will play big on Saturday. How do we approach this last turning point, psychologically?
We fight all season to achieve the objectives and these are first of all privileged moments, which we must live as such, and not as a negative pressure. We concentrate above all on the means and not on the final result, how to arrive at the result, not to put the accent only on that. We have at least our destiny in our hands for fourth place, which is already a big advantage. The most important thing is to concentrate on what we have mastered, on our game, above all not wasting energy on the rest, because the results of Monaco, Marseille, Strasbourg or Nice, of course, we cannot influence them.

“In the last minutes, we can imagine that it is useful to know if there are significant differences on other stadiums, but before, I do not see much interest”

Will you have an ear on the other stadiums or will you keep your players informed during the match?
No, except maybe in the last minutes, if really there are things acquired on the other grounds. Otherwise, we have to stay really focused on our match. We saw it again last week, Monaco was down 2-0 and things are going very fast (ASM won 4-2 against Brest). So, in the last minutes, we can imagine that it is useful to know if there are significant differences on other stages, but before, I do not see much interest.

A draw would guarantee you fourth place. Does it change the approach?
No, we will play to win, I think that’s the best way to approach this meeting.

Which Lille do you expect?
As it was in Nice, a team that wants to win and is playing its last match at home. A team which has had an average season in the Championship, very good in the European Cup, which will certainly be keen to end on a good note. It will be a difficult match, we know that.

There should be around 2,000 Rennes supporters in Lille. Is it a craze that surprises you?
I am very pleasantly surprised here by that, by the enthusiasm at the stadium or that of the people I can meet the few times I leave my house, where I have time to leave my house (to smile). With an audience that supported us even when we weren’t in very good times for us.

Should we be optimistic about your chances of extending to Rennes (he is under contract until 2023)?
For the moment, I told the club that we were waiting for the end of the season, because the most important thing is to qualify for the European Cup, to achieve the objectives, to take stock of the season which is past and evoke that which is to come. Afterwards, we will discuss my situation, but it is not urgent. »
