French Cup (8th final). FC Nantes – Stade Brestois, this Friday (9 p.m.)

When Christophe Hérelle was injured, Lilian Brassier had playing time. Then when Hérelle returned to competition in October, Brassier, 22, sat on the bench. “Inevitably, you take a blow to morale, confides the person concerned. I think I had a good first part of the season. But collectively, the results did not follow and the problem had to be solved. I understand because the team needed experience. It is the choice of the coach, I do not question ”. The defender experienced the thing as a “disappointment but I told myself that I was going to hang on to work and come back stronger”.

Der Zakarian: “He remains a young player”

“He has the qualities to be a good defender,” said his coach. He goes fast, he has a good technique to get the balls out. But for Michel Der Zakarian, Brassier still has areas for improvement which have notably brought him down the hierarchy of central defenders. “He still has to progress in reading the game, he remains a young player, continues Der Zakarian. Afterwards, it’s a question of concentration, which must be kept optimal throughout the match. This is often the lot of young players starting their career: managing to stay focused throughout the game.

“In my position, there is no room for error, and it’s treacherous, confirms Brassier. You can play a very good match, miss a chance, concede a goal and it will ruin your performance”.

Against Montpellier in December, before being taken behind his back by Wahi, the central defender performed well. “My axis of progression is to be 100% concentrated, from start to finish, to be closer and in contact with the opponent, to leave nothing to him”, smiles the interested party. What he did against Lille last weekend, coming back into the limelight when Hérelle was injured. “I didn’t add pressure to myself but I knew that I shouldn’t miss it”. Result, Brassier should continue this Friday in Nantes in the Coupe de France … probably as a left side, which he appreciates.
