Lucas Paqueta "We have to improve our concentration"
His state of mind
I'm happy to be able to help my team when I can score. I give my all in games and training, I want my teammates to feel good playing with me. I try to bring strength to this team, that's what makes me feel good. I hope to play in the Champions League with OL next season. Bruno is my best friend at Olympique Lyonnais. We didn't know each other before I joined, but we've built our friendship. I feel good when he's with me on the pitch. Together we are stronger.
The end of the season
I was very disappointed and frustrated after the Lille game. I brooded over this for several days. Then I said to myself that we have to pick our heads up because we still have goals to achieve. I'm giving the best of myself to help the team come back to the top. We must first of all think about winning. We trained well this week. It's up to us to win first on Sunday and then the week after. Then we'll see what happens. The presence of President Jean-Michel Aulas with us is not pressure, but rather support. It's good energy for the team, it helps us a lot.
Points to improve upon
This year has been difficult on and off the pitch for everyone in general. This match on Sunday will be special for us and for Nîmes. We have to be superior. We have beaten Monaco twice this season, we drew in Lille and here we played a good match but we lacked concentration. We have to improve our concentration to be stronger.
🎙 @LucasPaqueta97 avant #NOOL : "Je pense beaucoup au public lyonnais qui aurait pu nous apporter de l'énergie positive. Cela me manque de ne pas avoir de supporters dans les stades. J'ai hâte de les rencontrer et de jouer devant eux."— Olympique Lyonnais (@OL) May 14, 2021
