" Moses Simon did very well. He was one of the best on the pitch and the most dangerous player in the match. Bordeaux had to play with 10 players after 20 minutes so it was difficult for them. Josh Maja did well before being substituted.

" Samuel Kalu was introduced in the last 20 minutes and he also put up a wonderful performance. You know that he had COVID19 recently before he recovered from it so he had a little bit of less physical condition, which prevented him from starting the game.

" I watched the game at a very good position and only 5,000 fans were allowed to watch the game and there was no contract with the players, only the players and their coaches were together. I had to say hello to Simon and Kalu from 25 meters away, no photographs were allowed too.

" We only discuss on telephone before and after the match. The good thing is that I was able to see the players live in action and I took note of their fitness and performance which was good. Like I said I saw the best performance from Moses Simon. It is good to watch matches again in France after six months of no games as a result of Coronavirus. I hope to watch more games”,
