“I am very happy to have scored and delivered a decisive pass against Nantes, it is the best way to start the championship. I feel very good. I did all the preparation with the group, which could not be the case last season, it’s very positive.
With Falcao we can both evolve, not necessarily on the same line … When Falcao plays, the defenders are always focused on him, that leaves more space for me. His entry brought a lot against Nantes.
Friendlies do not count, they are made to prepare well. What is important is to win the official matches. Every game is different, the strategy depends on the opponent. At home we will be more likely to play our possession game, to control the games.
I feel good in this group. I do everything to play more games, help the team by scoring and passing assists. We have many new players, but we have integrated them well. I try to help them get better. They are very good players with a good state of mind.”
