Maxwel Cornet : « Plus d’exigence envers nous-même »
On the eve of the 4th match of the Ligue 1 season, between OL and Nîmes (9 p.m.), Maxwel Cornet spoke to the press to discuss the latest news.

The match at Montpellier

“We left this match frustrated. I think we could have come back with the 3 points. If we take our first chances, it's not the same game anymore. We lacked a killer's mentality. We have to be more demanding of ourselves, we have the talent for it. We need the same desire and the same determination as we had in the Champions League, in every match. We have to show that spirit in the league. We would all have liked to have started in the best possible way. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, but we’re not the only team that has started badly. It's up to us to realize that we must not let any points slip away that could cost us dearly at the end of the season. We will have to get our start to the league season back in hand."


His new position

"I've been playing as a wingback for a while now, the system demands that. If the coach needs me, whatever the position, I will respond no matter what. We have very good players in every position but competition is very healthy. We're all good guys: if I'm on the pitch, I know my competition is cheering me on. The reverse is also true. I saw Melvin Bard has extended his contract, it's fantastic for him and for us."


The mercato

"The transfer window is always complicated, there are always departures, arrivals, movement. We always wonder who will be in the locker room the next day. We are losing players who can make a difference on the pitch. I think of Marçal, Rafael, Kenny Tete who were very important players in the squad. As for me, I am at OL for the moment and I am available to bring the team close to its goals. We are all pulling in that direction. We can't wait for this to be over so that we can definitively focus on the competition."


Set pieces

“We work on set pieces a lot. We know that all the defenses in the championship are focused on stopping us so this is a weapon that can be very important. We are trying to improve ourselves in this area, as can be seen from our good performance at set pieces in Montpellier."
