Gourcuff: 'A good game'
It really wasn't easy for me because I haven't played much this season. We wanted to get the result for the supporters and for the club. You can see a team's true worth when the going gets tough and today again, we dug deep to get the result. We started the game well and then conceded that goal against the run of play. At any rate, I want to win a trophy this season.
I think we played a very good match tonight. We had plenty of chances to score and we played some good football. Their goal really did come against the run of play.
It was a good game. There were some really good passages of play, with just one or two touches of the ball. On a personal note, I enjoyed being out there on the pitch and that's the main thing.
We're very happy to have qualified, but we have to stop conceding silly goals like tonight. For my goal, I anticipated it well when Yoann had the ball. I helped the team and that's always nice. I'm happy to have scored because even if I'm playing on the wing, I'm really a centre forward and scoring is an obsession for me.
This winning spiral is great. Today, we took our time in getting the win, but I think over the whole game, we deserved to go through. This team has a lot of character, a lot of heart. The squad stands up to challenges, is very ambitious. We're very hard to beat at the moment.
