Frederic Hantz hails "magnificent" return to Ligue 1

Bastia manager Frederic Hantz says that his team's 2-1 win over Reims will be a boost to confidence.

Bastia manager Frederic Hantz has described his team's last-gasp 2-1 victory over Reims as like 'something out of a movie'.

Brazilian striker Ilan pounced in stoppage time to make it two wins out of two for the newly-promoted Corsican outfit.

Hantz said that he is at a loss to explain his side's poor start to the match, but believes that the win will be a boost to the confidence.

"It was a scenario worthy of one of the great suspense films, but a magnificent one for our first home game since returning to Ligue 1," said Hantz.

"The result is very important for us in terms of confidence. However, I cannot explain our very laborious and difficult start to the match. Was it down to the heat or was it an athletic problem? I can't say at the moment.

"It was a similar evening to last weekend at Sochaux where we went behind before coming back to win the game. It doesn't happen very often in modern football and I am satisfied."

Bastia travel to Rennes next Saturday.
