Houssem Aouar dans OL Access : « J’aime jouer haut pour apporter une passe décisive ou un but »

His versatility on the pitch

"It's the footballer's ideal. You have to be able to play in different positions. It brings me a lot of happiness. Higher up is necessarily where I prefer to play where I have the most natural fit, but I will take everything opportunity. I love playing further forward, to record an assist or goal -- that's what I like most. "


His relationship with Memphis

"Being close off the field helps us to play together. This creates interplay. We talk a lot, especially before the matches. He asks me to look at the deep runs he is making. "


The curled shot

"It's my favorite move. This is something that I particularly like. At training I work on it a lot. It's easier for me to score that kind of goal than big strikes. It takes precision and a little strength so that the 'keeper can not intervene. "



"We have always been sure of our strengths. On the pitch, it was more difficult to show it, but we were keen to string together three wins in a row to start a series. Today, this is the case and we will try to win against Marseille to make a jump up the table. I do not know if there was a lack of aggressiveness previously, but there was a lack in the level of play. We did not necessarily have opportunities to score and shine. Against Benfica we scored goals, so necessarily the fighting spirit came out more. "
