Maxwel Cornet dans OL Access : « On a les armes pour faire la différence »
The Lyon striker was the special guest of Julia Vial and Serge Colonge ahead of Sunday's trip to Marseille.

Sunday vs. Marseille

"We are all aware of the importance of the match. We've prepared slowly but surely. Saint-Etienne are right behind us. We hope they slip up... We'll need all our best people for this trip. We will trust the coach's choices. It will be up to us to give the best of ourselves. We'll have to take advantage of our chances and be strong defensively. We have the weapons to make a difference."


The final run-in

"Anything can happen as long as the championship is still going on. Second place will be tough, but we absolutely must secure third place." 


His season

"It's important to check your stats. It's been far from my best season, but it's still a good season in terms of minutes/goals ratio. My first part of the season was complicated. I still had to be ready when the coach called on me. I always try to be decisive. You have to know how to manage these emotions during a whole season. The most important thing is the team, well before any personal frustrations."


Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast

"It's a very big event. This will be my first Africa Cup of Nations. I will have the heart to give my all. We are looking forward to it. We want to win back the hearts of Ivorians after failing to qualify for the World Cup. Morocco will be our toughest opponent."


Life in Lyon

"I live a quiet life, like everyone else. I love movies. I just became a dad with the arrival of a baby boy. It's one of the most beautiful moments of my life. It's something special."
