"We made a lot of changes and we had a lot of injuries. I saw a great performance and everyone’s was focused and disciplined. It was a great win to end the year on. We played very fluidly, very quickly and simply. We stayed together both in attack and when we needed to defend. We showed a lot of quality and hard work. We managed to stay patient and it was tough against a Strasbourg side that defended very deep in a 5-3-2. It was tough to find moments to speed the play up. We made a few changes but we got into a rhythm really quickly and I’m delighted with the performance. 
Pembélé's goal? It was a really important goal because it calmed us down and gave us confidence. I’m also very happy that he scored his first goal. He played well and he’s got to carry on playing like that."


"I’m so happy to have scored and especially just before the festive period, it’s a great Christmas present for my family. We needed to win the game to end the year on a high and we’re delighted we did that. Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to you and your families. We’ll see you very soon!"
