St-Maximin: “I am blossoming”
The youngster strikes again. After scoring against Waregem in the first match of the Europa League, Allan St-Maximin repeated the feat against Vitesse on Thursday, as he put in a monstrous sprint and buried his shot (3-0). In the same fashion. The right winger looked back on his performance with a huge smile.
Allan, you have started the Europa League perfectly.
We are really happy this evening (Thursday). We couldn’t have hoped for more, we have 2 wins and 6 points. Now, we need to quickly focus on the very important game against Marseille and to think about our recovery. There will also be the clash against Lazio, where we will do everything to try to get the 3 points and guarantee qualification.
Have you ever played in a game in which there has been a power cut?
It’s anecdotal, I don’t really know what to say about it. It’s the first time it has happened to me, but when you are winning 2-0, you try to stay as concentrated as you can. It didn’t really have an effect on the game in the end.
Do you feel that you have made progress since your arrival?
I have been really well looked after here, I am happy, and you can feel it on the pitch. I will try to continue to make a difference. I really wanted to sign for OGC Nice. Now, I am blossoming, I feel better in every match on the pitch. I try to play with my qualities and to bring what I can for my team.
