Regularly criticized since his arrival at the OGC Nice for its inefficiency and poor performance, Myziane Maolida finally showed his advantage at the reception of Angers (3-1). He scored his first goal in Ligue 1 with the club Nice and issued a decisive pass.
Our correspondent in Nice
Myziane, this victory is it a relief for your team, which was in a spiral rather negative?
It is certain that tonight it was necessary to win. It's done. We were able to put intensity and we were very effective, it's a good thing for us.
This first goal in the league with the OGC Nice gives you confidence?
Yes, I needed confidence. Today, it succeeded. But this goal is only a beginning, it is not an end in itself. I hope it will continue for me but also that the team will continue to build.
How did you experience the criticisms of recent months about your performance?
It is especially for me that I work, it is not compared to the critics. I focus on the work I do in training. I had a complicated time but I'm working to progress and today, I think I made my most complete match since I was at OGC Nice. I hope it will continue.
What was the contribution of Patrick Vieira during this period of doubt?
The coach tells me to keep confidence in myself, to try on the field. He asks me not to ask me a question. But it's true that when you're not successful, it's human to ask yourself questions. After, we try to work and change things. I doubted it is true. But the most important thing is to recover.
We have felt very invested in this meeting …
Yes, as soon as I entered the match, I told myself that I was going to give it all, that I was going to try. And frankly, tonight, it succeeded me. But all the players are concerned and it's really a good thing to have been able to win tonight. We will have to continue taking points.
The positions are very close in the standings and you go to a week to three games …
The goal is to chain and win the matches that will happen. We will do everything for, and from the beginning of the week we will get back to work to be well present in Saint-Etienne.
