Looking back at 2018
"It will be hard for me to top it! There were some very good things in 2018, like winning the World Cup and qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages. It was a beautiful year!"
This season so far...
"My start to the season was average. I know I can do a lot better. I was inconsistent. I knew how to be good for some matches, but other times I was worse. You can't give up. You have to keep working."
Showdown with Barça
"Barcelona are one of the best teams in Europe. It's always fun to play against these kinds of teams. And it's normal that the fans expect a lot from me in this match. We will give our all. Even if we know that it's going to be a tough match."
"For me, he's the best player in the world. I've already faced him on the pitch at the World Cup. Lionel Messi has been at the top for ten years. He's been decisive every year. He wins trophies for his team. We will do our best to stop him."
"The critics don't get to me. This isn't the first time I've been criticized. They don't affect me. You have to get back to work to be more efficient."
"Rumors are a part of the transfer window. It's normal. I feel good here. My goal is to win a title with Lyon. Either way, I give my all."
