Eli Wissa on arriving at OL

I am very happy and even moved for making my family and all my loved ones proud. OL is a very big club that I have always followed. It's a great satisfaction to wear the Lyon colors. I want to be as decisive as possible this season and get on with the pros quickly. Karim Benzema is a reference for me.
