Léo Dubois : « Je ne me fixe pas de limites »
The Lyon defender previewed Friday's season finale against Nîmes while also addressing his first-ever call-up to the French National Team, among other topics.

Friday vs. Nîmes

We resumed training yesterday. We're still in work mode even though the end is near. Finishing well is important for us, for the staff, for the coach.


His thoughts on the season

We managed to achieve the goals we'd set out before the last day of the championship, so there's a sense of satisfaction. The goal for me beginning last year was to take a step. Things all came together at Saint-Etienne, at the end of the match, but it's something I've built over a number of years. I knew that with hard work... I could impose myself here. I've always had strong ambitions. I don't set limits. I think I'm mentally ready. I'm very positive about all this. Playing every three days isn't something I was used to. I had to get up to speed very quickly. I knew that by coming to OL I was going to start from zero, and that's something I liked.


His first Team France call-up

I found out about it by watching the announcement live. I am very happy and happy to receive this first call-up. I am happy and proud to represent OL at Clairefontaine. I'm already excited about discovering the life there, the people, the players, the coach. I want to stay. I want to keep working hard so that I can return.


Captain Dubois?

Everything in due time. I hope to bring what I can to the locker room. There are players who have roles in the locker room, and they do it well. I have this habit of giving talks before matches, to emphasize what needs to be done.


Next season's Champions League

We will all be Chelsea fans. I hope to congratulate Olivier Giroud and thank him next week.
