Jean-Michel Aulas

« This is beautiful. Nice are an excellent team. It was a battle. Another epic match against Nice. They had the chance to open the score against the run of play. There was a tactical change. We must salute the team’s extraordinary performance this season. There has been exceptional quality of play. I’m very happy about the team qualifying for Europe for a 22nd consecutive season. It’s unique. This team has a lot of talent. There were some great matches this season. I am very happy with tonight’s outcome in front of 56,000 fans… We haven’t spoken to Nabil Fekir. We will do it if he wishes. If a club does buy him, it will have to be a very big one in Europe. We will do everything possible to keep our important players. Thanks to Bruno for galvanizing this team. The signs and messages against him in the stands are unfair. I do not share that opinion. I didn’t like it and I think it's very unfair to Bruno. »
