Alexis Beka Beka (Nice midfielder, qualified for the Europa League Conference): “I tried my luck and it worked for me. I was able to do this thanks to my teammates who welcomed me very well into the team, very well integrated, which allows me to be confident and to try this kind of gesture. There is also the public who have been behind me since my arrival, it helps to try and score. I felt joy, a lot of emotion, pride, it was important to me to give the best of myself. There, I’m going to sleep well… In training, I put in a few strikes but this one, I never put in. I will work on it now.
It was important to us to start our season, we acquired this qualification and we will focus on the L1, Sunday against Marseille, to move forward. We showed great values, we showed that we were a united team that can get matches despite the difficulties. We sent a strong message but we will have to reproduce it throughout the season. »
Andy Delort (forward of Nice): “We still lacked success tonight (Thursday) but Alexis scores a sick goal and that can start the season in the best possible way. We were really happy in the locker room, it was important and we deserve it after all the work last season. On the goal of Alexis, I got up, I had a headache, it was extraordinary. He has a very big shot and I’m happy, he deserves. He is a valiant, he has the mentality. We were frustrated with the first leg (0-1), the public played the game and after the expulsion of Amine (Gouiri), we were still eleven against eleven. »
