Football/Ligue 2. Omar Daf (DFCO): “Keep this momentum”


Senou Coulibaly, not 100% against Saint-Etienne, could return. Alex Dobre remains uncertain. “He has resumed the race, he is not far away”, explains Omar Daf. Valentin Jacob, Aurélien Scheidler and Lucas Deaux have not resumed with the group and will miss the trip to Pau. Just like Yassine Benzia who expressed the wish to leave, Omar Daf wishing players involved in the Dijon project. “As long as his situation is not effective, I leave it to his agent and the managers to manage. I want to work with players who want to stay at DFCO and in the project 100%. »

Positive return after Saint-Etienne

“Players had not played for several months, on a feeling of freshness and a group which has this desire to please the supporters. We have to keep this momentum and this drive that we have displayed, I expect that throughout the season (…). We created a lot of situations, even clear chances. It is necessary to be even more effective in these zones of truth to take shelter because the meetings can be played on details (…). The positive results were significant. My role was to restore confidence and solidity. The players have regained confidence and a smile. You have to keep that humility. It’s up to us to stay focused, I make sure that they stay focused. »

Create the game outside

“In our game plan, you have to have a lot of humility and be very respectful of our opponent. This is what we did against ASSE and what we will do against Pau. The idea is to approach meetings in the same way, whether at home or away. »

“This is a profile followed for several months by the recruitment unit. I trust them completely. He is a versatile player with qualities of speed. He did all the preparation with Nottingham even if in the end he trained with the U23 team, he is sharp. He wanted to find playing time, I usually put competition at all levels. He will enter the rotation. For the moment, he is not qualified, we are waiting for the day (…). For now, I’m not expecting any other recruits. Some have expressed the wish to leave, it will perhaps be an opportunity to readjust. But there is nothing urgent. »
