Lyon's president spoke to OLTV after Sunday's come-from-behind win over Saint-Etienne in the 118th Rhone derby.
It's very satisfying. The best team won. This Saint-Etienne team had managed all their matches at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. There was a real Lyon influence on this derby. I think of our fans, who have to be very happy. We dedicate the win to them. It was all the more important because our opponent was in front [of us in the standings]. It's also very important psychologically. I'm sure we're going to have a great season. I have no doubts. I'm very happy for Moussa [Dembélé]. That's all for OL tonight. We need to give importance to the Coupe de France on Thursday. It's very important to me. I've told the players this.
