I want to convey a strong message. I’ve been struggling with this team for three months and I’m tired. Something needs to be changed. Here, if you tell them the truth, they get nervous. It is said Auxerre has a centre for youth, but what does it produce? Nothing. I’ve watched the matches of U19 and U17 teams, there no one I can use. But I shouldn’t say that, they get mad. Something needs to change, otherwise this club has no means to register progress,”
