French Cup (7th round). Saint-Grégoire (R2) – Pontivyen Stadium (R1), this Saturday (6pm)

How are you feeling before this trip to Ille-et-Vilaine?

We turned the page on a defeat in the league, which was hard to swallow, to start again. We will have to approach this match very worried, calm down our game and trust each other. In cup there is no catching up, you have to give everything. This is what we plan to do. In this kind of fighting, the levels are forgotten. The two clubs know the next draw, Alençon (N3) or Le Havre (L2). The two want to meet in the 8th to experience the fight and for the financial windfall that may result. Saint-Grégoire eliminated Marzan, Plescop and Noyal-Pontivy. It is up to us to show a beautiful image of Morbihan and seek this qualification.

As captain, what message will you send to your teammates before the game?

Don’t put pressure on yourself. Enjoy this moment. Our elders have lived five or six great epics in their career, that is very rare for an amateur footballer. Young people have their chapter to write. Everyone wants to ensure that the adventure will be as long and beautiful as possible.

On a personal level, you have the opportunity to experience a third 8th round. Are you thinking about it?

The first, I was 20 years old, was against Luçon (CFA) with Stade Pontivyen in 2012. The second with Locminé, already against Le Havre, in 2016. Obviously, reliving the most beautiful moment in a footballer’s life is motivating. To offer joy to the spectators, to see the joy in the children’s eyes, it is fabulous and unforgettable.
