Tigana wants focus on the field

Bordeaux coach Jean Tigana wants to put his own troubled position to one side and focus on reversing his side's fortunes on the pitch.

Club president Jean-Louis Triaud was forced into a public defence of his manager earlier this week, following last Saturday's remarkable 5-1 defeat at Lorient.

Since then, though, Tigana's assistant Michel Pavon has stood down from his role at the club, adding to the upheaval around the Stade Chaban-Delmas.

"Les Girondins de Bordeaux, it's 1881 (the year the club was formed)," Tigana said. "It's not Jean Tigana, Jean-Louis Triaud or Michel Pavon. Think first and foremost of the club and the supporters who are suffering.

"At a given moment, there has to be a reaction. Never mind the coach - it's on the pitch that it happens. The truth is seen inside that green rectangle."

Listing his short-term targets as "getting towards overcoming this crisis, rebuilding and moving back towards the European places," Tigana added: "I know that the challenge will be difficult."

He defended his own record as a coach and shrugged off pressure on him, saying: "I have only coached big clubs and I have always succeeded. Anyone can judge me.

"You've never seen me aggressive, even when you [journalists] say things and I feel completely the opposite. I leave you to form your own decisions and judgements. This is how the game works. I accept that. It's not a problem."
