We don’t deserve the title – Fournier

Lyon manager Hubert Fournier was disappointed with his side’s 3-0 French Ligue 1 loss at Caen on Saturday, leaving league-leaders Paris Saint-Germain on the verge of lifting this season’s French top-tier title.

A brace by Nicolas Benezet along with a goal from Sloan Privat gave Caen the three points at the Stade Michel-d’Ornano, leaving Lyon six points adrift reigning champions PSG, with the latter needing only a point away at Montpellier to seal the title, and Fournier believes his side do not deserve to win the Ligue 1 this term.

“We really failed to show up. We were up against a very good side,” he said after the match.

“They showed us all their qualities this evening.

“We just didn’t do enough, and sometimes we didn’t even try to do enough. And that’s the most disappointing.

“We deserved to lose. Perhaps it was a result of all the pressure of the last few weeks.

“It’s a huge disappointment because Paris have skipped clear in the standings. When you lose 3-0 to Caen, you don’t deserve to win the league.

“We have to recover now, analyse this defeat and prepare for the next game against Bordeaux.”
