Islam Slimani was in front of the press this Thursday before the reception of Stade Brestois on the 8th matchday.
It's certain that winning gives us more confidence after the derby. It's good for us, we can work more at peace. We expected this first victory, I think it was deserved. I gave the maximum against Nice. The most important thing is AS Monaco.
The coach knows my qualities, he knows how to use me and give me confidence. For me the most important thing is to give the maximum for the team. When you play well and you are confident you can more easily enjoy things. When the collective works, individuality is highlighted.
At Sporting I was not always in the eleven, but he knows he can count on me, I am always ready.
It was frustrating that my goal was ruled out, we would have been leading 2-0 and finally the goal was denied. It can even be unsettling for the team that scores.
It's always good to discover new leagues. I feel good, I always try to help the team. At the beginning of the season there wasn't much belief in me. It was even an advantage.
With Wissam we are complementary. We have two different profiles, he is explosive and goes into space. We are both experienced players.
Golovin is a very good player, he is full of quality. He has a good shot and very good technique. By continuing like this he can have a great career.
I think we can still do better. We had a good match against a good Nice team. We must have more team play.
It's going to be a difficult match against Brest, it will take another great match to beat them.
Since 2014 everyone has been waiting for Algeria to win a trophy because we have a lot of very great players. We are very happy to have won this CAN but now we must move on.
