Pierre Kalulu dans OL Access : « J'ai franchi un cap »
Pierre Kalulu, captain of the Youth League team, was the guest on OL Access, this Thursday at 18h15. Find the whole interview on OL PLAY.

The match against Benfica

We knew it was definitely the best team in Pool G. They had a good first half with a high press that put us in trouble. It took a long time to adapt to their style of play, but as the match went on we got used to it.


His assist for Rayan Cherki

These types of late-game passes are the best. At the beginning of the sequence I sensed the opportunity. I saw that there was space because they left no one at the back. I saw a path and Rayan on the flank so I made the pass.

His versatility

I changed position at half-time, I went to the right side. We are used to moving about on the pitch. During our training, we are taught to play in different positions. I am more comfortable in central defense, I am more serene. Last season I crossed a bridge. I played high-stakes matches and that made me grow.


The captaincy

The coaches trusted me by passing me the captain's armband. I think they gave it to me because I have been in the group for a long time. It makes me very happy.
