On ARL, Gernot Rohr explained that he was supporting the Girondins de Bordeaux and the coach who has just been extended, David Guion.
“I support them as much as I can with my presence at matches. I have often come since December, because I had a little more time. Also, with other elders, we also try to analyze a little what is happening with a surprise now which is the extension of David Guion, who had failed in his mission, but who is still extended. We wish him good luck, and we are always happy that a trainer is not landed. We hope he has a say in terms of the workforce because he is still the first person in charge of the team, he is the coach! If he can’t at least participate in the decision of the constitution of his workforce, it would be very sad. Trading can’t do it all. They failed, since we went down, being 20th. There are still things to change.”
This relegation is still a big disappointment because it did not take a lot of points during this last season to stay in Ligue 1.
“It was an exceptional year at that level, but also for all these goals conceded by the Girondins… We had never seen that, there were a host of goals. They did not find the solution, neither on the ground, nor in the strategies. Now, we have to look ahead, and rebuild a team that holds up. There are still a few players, there is Sékou Mara, Gaëtan Poussin… There are still a few boys you can count on. There is the academy which, in these cases, should produce capable players, as they did in 91-92… With kids from the region, who loved their club, who really brought the contribution for the ascent”.
