FOOTBALL - Stade Rennais: Julien Stéphan reassures despite the draw in Dijon

Stade Rennes FC was hooked by Dijon (1-1) on Friday evening, at the opening of the 7th day of Ligue 1. Despite this poor performance against the red lantern of the championship, Julien Stéphan did not show up worried about the poor performance of his players.

Stade Rennes FC: Julien Stéphan does not want his players

It was with the status of leader of Ligue 1 that Stade Rennes FC moved onto the lawn of Dijon FCO, bottom of the standings. While one would have thought it was a show of strength from the handlebars in Ligue 1, the Dijon (1-1) have instead put a stop to the progress of their opponents. For Rennes, it's a dead loss of two points in the race for the podium. Present at a press conference to comment on the performance of his players, Julien Stéphan refused to speak of underperformance. Instead, the Breton coach recalled that Stade Rennes FC "remain undefeated" since the start of the season. The SRFC manager also felt that this point sharing with the Burgundians was not a bad result that could justify criticism against the Red and Black players. Stade Rennes took "15 points out of 21, more than two points on average" after 7 days in Ligue 1. "It's still a good start to the season," said Julien Stéphan.

The coach promises a better performance of the SRFC in the Champions League

Stade Rennes FC will make their Champions League debut against Krasnodar next Tuesday. A few days before this continental meeting, the draw of the SRFC against the last of Ligue 1 can be worrying. Julien Stéphan obviously does not share this feeling of concern. For the strategist of the Breton formation, there is no question of "being alarmed after this match". He ensures that the Champions League match "will be something else, a different preparation" and recalls that his SRFC players will have "three full days to recover".
