Laurent Blanc (coach of Lyon, after the 3-1 victory against MonacoFriday, in Ligue 1) “I don’t know if it’s the best game since I’ve been here, but I’m the happiest for my players. We have players who allow us to play well but we cannot go into the fight because of our athletic deficit. This may be a reference match. I also liked the last thirty minutes of Montpellier (5-4). I am very happy for my players, by dint of telling them that they would be rewarded by the game. But I had made the same speech in Clermont (1-2 defeat, last Sunday)! »

“Alexandre Lacazette exudes a very high level and fulfills his role as team leader. It’s not just him. On the second goal, Rayan Cherki should have scored after his roulette but I’m happy that Maxence Caqueret scored the goal anyway. Other players have been in tune. Everyone was in the same spirit against a great Monaco team. The players are happy with the way they won. I hope the future is on. Things are happening in the club but we must not be afraid. »

We showed tonight that we can still hope, by playing simple and forward. We would like to dominate the game from start to finish. But this is not always possible. We showed fighting spirit to overturn the match, after having started it very badly. Because we have the qualities for. We are also satisfied defensively because we did not concede the second goal. »
