Maxwel Cornet: “We needed to help our defenders.”

Ivorian winger Maxwel Cornet discussed his match-winning performance for Lyon last night over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

“We had the heart to do a big match, people weren’t expecting this from us certainly. We wanted to show that we could rival the top teams. We played against one of the best teams in the world, so we need to continue, not get ahead of ourselves. In our video session before the game we say that they had very, very quick wide-men. We needed to help our defenders. This evening we succeeded, it was enormous work, but we had to do with a squad. With a goal as well for me, I am happy.”
