Nedim Remili: 'We won the right way'
On Wednesday evening, Paris Saint-Germain Handball won away to Pontault-Combault (23-39), in Lidl StarLigue Round 25 action. Jesus Gonzalez, Robin Dourte and Nedim Remili gave us their thoughts on the match and looked ahead to the final clash of the season, at home to Cesson-Rennes.
Jesus Gonzalez (Paris Saint-Germain Handball assistant coach):
"Paris is an important club and we have to have respect for every team. Tonight, we had respect for Pontault. Our strong performance gave us the chance to give some youngsters a run and get some experience. On Thursday, against Cesson, it will be an important match for several of our players, as it will be their last with us [Thierry Omeyer, Uwe Gensheimer and Luka Stepancic]. In front of our home fans, we need to turn in an impressive performance."
Robin Dourte (Paris Saint-Germain Handball pivot):
"There were no surprises tonight, even though it wasn't an easy match. We found answers to the problems they posed us. I'm happy to have found a way to score tonight, but I'm well aware of the amount of work I have to do. We have just one match left to play, so we will once again need to be very focused. It's also an important match in terms of honouring Titi [Omeyer] and ending the season well in front of our fans."
Nedim Remili (Paris Saint-Germain Handball right-back):
"The first half was tough, as we had a long trip [2.5 hours in a bus!]. In the second half, we managed to step on the gas and make the difference. Everyone got some game time and it was a great match. We want to win in the right way. That was the case tonight and I hope it will be once again when we take on Cesson-Rennes. We will have a lot to celebrate, so we have to make sure everyone's in a festive mood. It will be Titi's last match and farewells are always a great party."
