Les Olympiens captain Dimitri Payet and defender Bouna Sarr shared their thoughts after the club's victory over Dijon on Sunday at the Orange Velodrome.

Dimitri Payet : «We needed this win»

"Obviously, it feels good to get back into the win column. We needed it, it was important. We knew how to do it. But it was not easy. I think we have mastered the game and let them have the ball a little more in the second half to be able to counter. After we scored two goals, and didn't allow any, it feels good. I saw a team that came out willing to get their shirts dirty, to fight for every ball. This was important because beyond being beautiful we must be effective.

Adil was involved in both goals. It's pretty rare for a defender to be involved in both goals like that, so that's good for us. I think it'll be good for him too. "

Bouna Sarr : «We started strong» 

"This win relieves a lot of pressure, and it puts us in a good mindset before the international break. It wasn't easy because we were forced to defend at the end of the match. I don't think we were worried too much, though. We had to be patient to get that second goal.

We started strong, we created a lot of opportunities. The positive for us tonight is the three points, the victory. It had been a while since we won, obviously there was a little apprehension before this game but we quickly realized that we were inside and we managed to win. We are happy for Adil (Rami), it will do him good too."
