"What is your feeling after this long victory?
It was a difficult victory but we struggled until the end and we managed to win thanks to our supporters. We had trouble getting into the game. It is true that when the team does not play well, as in the beginning, we can not create many opportunities. When we play better, we create more opportunities, that's how I could be decisive. With the work of the whole team, I was able to take the opportunity to score an important goal.
You chained the matches and you score again. Are you satisfied with your personal service?
I am very happy. On a daily basis, they help me a lot, this is how I will continue to be decisive.
You stay on four goals scored in the last four days. Have you set a specific goal to achieve?
No, I do not have a specific goal. My goal is to help the team match after match. Goals will come naturally.
"We managed to outdo ourselves to win"
You also do a lot of defensive work. Is it important to be the first defender?
This is a different reality from Sporting and Portugal. I have to work more to help the midfielder. The coach (Christophe Galtier) ask me to be more effective in this area. I'm getting used to it. It's a good way to help the team win victories.
Why does the LOSC encounter so many difficulties at home against teams at the bottom of the table?
It is a motivation for them to come face the LOSC, second in the standings. It forces us to play our game. But we managed to outdo ourselves to win tonight.
Several big teams have difficulties this season, does it open an opportunity for Lille to finish on the podium?
These are things that happen and it shows the quality of the Championship of France. These teams, Lyon, Monaco or Marseille will certainly catch up in the standings. But it shows that nothing is played. It's up to us to enjoy it. "
Foot: "We trust in ourselves"
Jérémy Pied (Lille): "To take a goal, it happens, but it is the reaction that is important. We have a pretty young team and we never said we were perfect. The points accumulate and we do everything to stay as high as possible. We trust in ourselves, but we must keep our humility. We will have key games in the season, we will have to manage them well. In the locker room, we want to immerse ourselves in this word: the win. - F.L.D.
