OL-OM (CDF) : The reactions after qualification
I hope we will play the semifinal here. We saw the importance of playing at home with our supporters. It’s a deserved victory tonight. I am satisfied with the performance of the group. The substitutes were decisive. We were a little tentative at the start of the match but then we got stronger. We played between the lines and found depth. The play that led to the goal was a beautiful moment of interplay. It’s very satisfying. We must now continue. We played against a team who are strong in possession. We knew that the midfiled battle would be hard to win, but I'm happy. Lucas Tousart took a big blow. It will be complicated for Sunday. We hope he can come back as soon as possible. We will not comment on the sanction.
The goal was to win and qualify. It’s been done tonight and we’ve taken revenge. It was a close match with two teams that had wasteful moments technically, but the main thing was to take the lead and win. It’s a bit of the same context as in Paris where Meunier played very high up the pitch. We closed the right side down well with Maxwel Cornet. I would love to face Saint-Etienne now in a home derby.
It was a big match but we had our principles that we applied so we come out with the win and we are happy. It was important to have desire tonight, we gave everything. I felt pretty good, after all it’s the team first, I’m delighted to have been able to help the team. I took a booking that is not deserved I think because I got the ball. One of my goals is to be booked less in the future. I watched the first half of the Youth League. They were able to come back and I am delighted for them, for their qualification, but also for Amine (Gouiri) who scored a double.
