Diarra spells out Bordeaux belief

Midfielder Alou Diarra believes FC Girondins de Bordeaux are thriving on the extra responsibility that comes with being French champions – and will therefore not repeat the errors of last season when they never recovered from a miserable start to the group stage.Laurent Blanc’s side were left with it all to do last year after following up an opening 4-0 defeat at Chelsea FC with a 3-1 home loss to AS Roma in their UEFA Champions League section. Although they subsequently enjoyed a maximum return from two meetings with CFR 1907 Cluj and held the Londoners at home, the damage was done.
