There are defeats that go less well than others. Beaten at home by Stade de Reims (2-1), Paulo Fonseca regretted the bad start of his team, which was already trailing by a break after a full quarter of an hour of play. “The first 15 minutes were difficult” recognizes the Portuguese on the microphone of Prime Video, before making a rant about the evening refereeing played by Mr. Djedid, replacing Mr. Wattellier, from the 3rd minute. According to Fonseca, the first goal was started by two flagrant errors from Reims: first a block on Chevalier, then a foot too high from the striker Daramy in front of Umtiti.
“I don’t understand some of the referee’s decisionscontinues the Lille coach. There is a foul on Chevalier and another on Umtiti. For me there is no doubt. There is a block first on Lucas. And then three minutes of added time (at the end, editor’s note), it’s incredible. The referee influenced the result”he laments, very frustrated by this defeat, which does not allow Lille to move back into the top 5, unlike Rémois.
