Speaking to Canal+ in the wake of Lille’s 2-1 comeback win over Sevilla last night, Jonathan Ikoné reacted to his team’s first win of their European campaign.
His words transcribed in L’Équipe, the scorer of Les Dogues’ second – after Jonathan David equalised from the spot before the break – underlined the team’s hunger to get a result.
“It’s amazing, we were impatient for this win. I hope it won’t be the last. We’ll give ourselves the means to qualify [for the knockout rounds]. We showed we had hunger.”
“We didn’t give up despite going down. From the start, we believed we could qualify and now it’s been confirmed a bit more.”
