“Participation is more important than a victory”

UTLC Cup 2019

Today Lyon beat Zhejiang Greentown with the score 3:1. The midfielder of the French team Jalil Baghdad said that despite this, the main thing is not to win, but to participate.

– Today Lyon showed a great game. Congratulations with the victory! Talking about mistakes, what does your team still have to work on?
– We changed tactics in this match, and it brought us a good result. To be honest, I am very happy with the victory.

– Summing up the past matches, how would you assess the performance of Lyon?
– We have trained a lot and worked on our mistakes. But I don’t think we’re going to win the tournament. The opponents are very strong. But it’s more important to participate than to win.

– Is this your first time in Moscow?
– Yes, and I like the Russian capital very much. I would like to come here again next year for the UTLC Cup 2020.

– Do your parents support you and your team?
– Sure. They watch live broadcasts of each match on Youtube and always wish Lyon to win.
