Maxwel Cornet: “I have succeeded once more against Man City.”

Ivorian left wing-back and goalscorer on the night, Maxwel Cornet, reacted to RMC Sport following Lyon’s qualification for the Champions’ League semi-finals.

“These are exceptional matches to play in, they don’t come along everyday, I have succeeded once more against Man City. We have to underline the work of the team. My goal? It was a long play, touch from Karl (Toko-Ekambi), I think, I take it with one touch and I succeeded. I am delighted. We are lucky to play against the best players in the world. We are not here by accident, we have worked very hard, we have never given up. We have another two matches.”

On critics:

That is part of football, the most important thing is to rout the doubters, that is what I have done, I have always given my all for the shirt. I do not know if we were underestimated, we do our work in complete humility. We work each day. We have to continue like this.

On Bayern Munich:

We know the attacking power of this team, we saw it again vs Barça. It will be a difficult match that we will have to play with desire, there is no reason why we shouldn’t succeed.
