Lyon winger Maxwel Cornet takes inspiration from Jordi Alba in new role

Speaking in a press conference today ahead of a mid-week Coupe de France clash with Marseille, Ivorian winger Maxwel Cornet discussed his recent conversion to left-back for Lyon amid their injury difficulties and where he has been taking inspiration from.

“I have to perform well, that’s the most important thing. I speak a lot with Jason (Denayer) and with the defenders. It’s important… I watch defenders more and more, notably Jordi Alba. It is a position that I like. So it could be a solution in the future.”
