OL - Ajaccio : les réactions d'après-match
Following a win in the Round of 64 of the Coupe de France against AC Ajaccio, Lyon's players and Rudi Garcia spoke to OLTV. All reactions can be found on OLPlay.

Rudi Garcia

“We avoided this being a trap match. We made it easy. We started strong as we had wanted to do. The captain has shown the way. There are lots of points of satisfaction: the team's combination play, the efficiency of the attackers. We respected the opponent by playing to 100% of our ability. Everyone has done well. They lived up to my expectations. They were playing as a collective, being generous. It did them good physically. This will be useful for the future. We were able to manage playing time. It was a perfect evening."


Djamel Benlamri

“All the matches are difficult. We did the job. I am well integrated into the squad, even if it's always hard not to have a lot of playing time. I’m working hard in training. I hope we will keep moving forward."


Maxwel Cornet

“I had to get used to playing as a winger again. It was successful for me tonight with a goal and a good sense of play… We know there are still a lot of matches to play. The coach had the opportunity to rotate the side, but the team still came together quickly. It worked well."


Melvin Bard

“The first few minutes were a bit tough. But it feels good to be playing. We will work hard to repeat this kind of performance. It’s important, we need everyone."
