FC Nantes and RC Strasbourg Alsace have two of the best audiences in France. Is there anything that played out when you logged on to Alsace?
Yes, I had known a hot crowd in Nantes and I didn't want to find myself in a club with a stadium with a dull atmosphere. I knew that Meinau Stadium was known for its warm atmosphere and I was not disappointed. What impressed me both in Strasbourg and Nantes is human courage and passion. There are always supporters in training, people who cross France in large numbers to come and support us outside … It really marks the passion that exists around these two clubs.

You won the last BKT League Cup. Is it the best memory of your career?
Far from! Honestly, I didn't expect to win a title with Strasbourg by signing here, but that's the beauty of football, you can never predict anything. I only have fond memories of our BKT League Cup trip. It was a wonderful experience, especially our final in Lille with the victory on penalty. I hope to relive that kind of emotion in my career.
