Garde delighted with Lyon´s clean sheet

11 August 2013 05:42

Lyon coach Remi Garde was delighted by the defensive efforts of his side after their 4-0 victory over Nice on Saturday.

Lyon finished third last term and kicked off the new campaign in the best possible fashion when a brace from Alexandre Lacazette and further goals from Clement Grenier and Yoann Gourcuff powered them to a comfortable home win.

Garde praised his side's composure at the back after the win, especially his Portuguese goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

"I am pleased that we did not concede any goals tonight," Garde said.

"That is the third game we have played in a row without conceding.

"Like in the other times, we can thank Anthony Lopes who saved us in goal.

"Lopes had to make some good saves and the fact we did not take any goals was important for the confidence of the players.

"I told it to the players before and after the game, and they can build from this performance.

"We did not control the game in the first (half) like we did in the second.

"We had some luck but we did create it but, I repeat, the season will be long and we have to remain grounded."

Garde paid tribute to departing striker Lisandro Lopez, who is headed for Al Gharafa, and feels he may have uncovered a replacement in Lacazette, who was used in a central role against Nice.

"I'm happy for Alex Lacazette," Garde said.

"I also wanted to make a huge tribute to Licha (Lopez). I will not forget what he did."
