The gamers of the SPO Rouen finish their collection of three conferences in a single week, this afternoon behind closed doorways
in opposition to Hennebont, one of many massive names within the championship.
Even if the victories in opposition to Saint-Denis and Angers have been troublesome, they’d the advantage of reviving the Rouen group. In a singular context, with out spectators. A
state of affairs that doesn’t disturb an excessive amount of
the gamers. “It’s different but the same for everyone. Above all, I appreciate being able to play ”, admits Can Akkuzu. “It’s like that, we have no choice”, admits Alexandre Robinot.
Both clearly level to the ambiance extra hushed than traditional. “The atmosphere is lacking, there is no noise. When we have a worse shot, no one is there to revive us. But, honestly, this state of affairs does not impact the way I play. I try to focus on myself. We are pro, we have to play whatever the conditions ”, says the primary; feedback confirmed by the second: “It appears calmer, there are not any spectators to spice up us. “ In the end, the two Normans admit that things do not change their behavior. Even if, “We are maybe somewhat deprived in Rouen to not have our traditional public pushing us”, underlines Robinot.
“We decide up the rhythm”
The sequence of three matches in the week does not disturb them. Quite the contrary. “These three close matches seem to me a very good way to play as much as possible, which we have been sorely lacking since March. We pick up the pace. I see the positive side of the situation ”, Akkuzu analysis. “I think it’s pretty good. We have the opportunity to meet all together for a week, to train together, to see the leaders of the club. And then, a few days ago to recuperate between the games, all of this is not a problem for us ”, opines the 2018 French champion.
This afternoon’s match will be the high point of the week, an expected shock between two ambitious teams who are eyeing the top of the table. “Hennebont has three gamers of equal degree and the Egyptian Omar Assar (n ° 2) as no 1. I really feel good, though I used to be weakened by the coronavirus three weeks in the past”, slips Alexandre Robinot while Can Akkuzu warns that “The match is not going to be simple and we must concentrate on ourselves above all else”.
