Remi Garde: 'Lyon didn't deserve Ajaccio loss'

Remi Garde says that Lyon need to improve defensively but did not deserve to lose to Ajaccio on Wednesday.

Lyon head coach Remi Garde has expressed his disappointment at their defeat to Ajaccio and feels that his side deserved better from the match.

Aboubacar Demba Camara scored the winner to condemn Les Gones to a 2-1 loss after Steed Malbranque had cancelled out the home side's opener through Salim Arrache.

Lyon have now secured just one win in their last eight matches in all competitions, and Garde admits that his team need to improve their defending.

"I am disappointed that we lost the match," Garde told reporters. "We did not deserve it, but that is football.

"I think we had done the hard part by getting the equaliser but our defending at both of their goals was naive. That said, I can't overly criticise my players.

"I think that, compared to recent weeks, we tried to play football and work well together as a team. But we were defensively fragile."

Lyon host Lille at the Stade de Gerland on Saturday.
