Nabil Fekir : « Je serai toujours Lyonnais, ne vous inquiétez pas »
The OL captain, who played the final 15 minutes in Friday's 2-0 win against Strasbourg, spoke to OLTV and Canal + Sport in his first game back from the World Cup.

His return to action

I spoke with the coach before the match and we decided that I wouldn't start. Physically I feel good, which is the most important thing. We're taking our time after a short vacation. Everything's going well for me.

Friday's win over Strasbourg

It's a great victory against a football-playing Strasbourg side. They gave us some problems in the first half. We were able to stay strong and score two goals to get the win.

His future

Will I be with Lyon at midnight on August 31? I'll always be Lyonnais, don't worry. My goals are always high when I start a new season.

His goals for this season

Like every season, we'll try to do as best as possible in the league. Finishing on the podium is one of the club's goals. Winning the title will be tough because of PSG and their star-studded squad. We want to do well in every competition.

His message for Amine Gouiri

He's more than a friend, he's like a little brother. I'm very close with him. It's not easy what he's going through. He'll come back from it. Mentally he's a very strong player. I know he'll come back in top shape.
