Remi Garde blasts Lyon players

Lyon boss Remi Garde offers no excuses for his team's performance in their 3-1 defeat to Ajaccio.

Lyon coach Remi Garde has admitted that Paris Saint-Germain are "in a different league" to his team.

Les Gones lost 3-1 at Ajaccio this afternoon, meaning that they now trail Carlo Ancelotti's men by three points at the top of Ligue 1.

Garde slated his players for taking their eye off the ball after taking the lead through Alexandre Lacazette in the 53rd minute.

In the end, Chahir Belghazouani and a brace by Adrian Mutu saw L'ours run out 3-1 winners at the Stade Francois Coty.

"At 1-0, we stopped playing," Ligue1.com quotes Garde as saying. "We thought we'd done the hard work and had the three points in the bag.

"I tried to encourage my team to keep the same philosophy. I thought that we had to try and score again rather than just sit on our lead. I don't have a team that can do that, and you saw that today.

"Honestly, PSG are in a different league to us. We will try to hang on in there as long as possible, but we must not only look forward. Our objective is to finish in the top three, and we have some serious rivals."

Lyon host Lille at the Stade de Gerland next Sunday.
