Jonathan David (Lille): “We knew that the game would be quite dirty”

“You have scored half of LOSC’s goals this season. How do you rate your performance?
I am in good shape but it remains a collective work because my teammates put me in the best situations to finish the actions.

You have often dropped out. What is your role in your offensive animation?
This is what the coach asks me, where the opponent leaves spaces, which allows us to create opportunities.

Why is it harder in L1 than in C1?
I do not know. Of course, we give the same effort in L1. We know how important the results are. We are not in the Championship where we would like to be.

How do you live this prosperous period on a personal level?
I live it really well. But the most important is victory. If my goals and my work help the team, I’m happy. But the most important thing is to win.

Were you carried away by your momentum in the first quarter of an hour?
At the very beginning, we had the ball. They momentarily took control of the match and took advantage of the space to counterattack. But we managed it well by getting back into place. Then we dominated them and closed in the first half.

How do you manage travel to other continents and the resulting fatigue?
I think I am still young. I try to recover well and hydrate myself well.

How did you experience the fight against Salzburg?
It was a difficult meeting with a lot of intensity. The C1 asks that. We knew we had to stay strong, that the game would be pretty dirty. It was necessary to go beyond. We knew how to do it. “
