Well done, but don’t lose your focus!” Morgan Sanson: “Mario told me about it during the week. I thought it was genius. He wanted to go to the bench and
get his phone. But I suggested he’d give it to the cameraman behind the goal, so you can get it and record live right away. That was partly my idea!” Fan: “We deserve it. We’ve been waiting for this… We are getting closer to Lyon.” “Our confidence is back!” “With Balotelli here, we can’t stop scoring!” “Let’s go OM, go!” “Allez l’OM!”
