Bruno Genesio: "We have nothing to envy other teams"
We had a very good first period, while the second half was much more difficult against an opponent that got back into the game. We were able to resist and be unified, even at 10 vs 11. We know that in terms of technical ability, we have nothing to envy other teams. Our state of mind was a bit lacking, but there was an awareness. Over time, we'll see if this improves. We are a team with a lot of good football players. As long as we have the right state of mind, we can repeat these kinds of performances. But it's hard playing every three days. As for injuries, it shouldn't be too bad for Tanguy (Ndombele). On the other hand, it's more serious for Martin (Terrier), whose ankle is already swollen.
We had to get a winning streak going. Now we need to keep it going. It was important to give a good performance here and play as a unit. We can't let up. We had some difficulties in the second half, but we struggled and won together. We put in all this effort, it's amazing. Also, we didn't concede a goal. I feel good right now. I'm fresh mentally and physically.

There are a lot of positives to take from tonight. We played a great first period and were united in the second half. It's good. It's a very calm squad despite its youth. We managed to get back up after a difficult stretch... If it's for the good of the team, I have no problems playing on the left side.
We knew we could start a winning streak and we did it. We are satisfied to have weathered the storm tonight. Being in second place is good, even if it's early in the season.
Moussa Dembélé :
It's a beautiful evening. We got the three points, I opened my goal scoring account and we played well .. it's a good thing. It's about our state of mind, our will. We wanted to work hard and we did it. This shows the strength of our group. When you're new at a club, it's a little complicated at first. I'm lucky to be familiar with guys like Houssem (Aouar) and Tanguy (Ndombélé)... I'm happy to have scored and I hope it's the beginning of many.
