Rémy Vercoutre: The bottom line was to avoid taking risks so we wouldn’t fall into their trap. The opposition was very well organised. Bidegain’s goal was one of the best shots I have ever conceded. I clearly saw him take the shot then the ball floated and curved before ending up in the net.
Bouet (FCAB keeper): Yet another free kick for Juninho, on the inside of the post. I only saw the ball at the last moment, and when it’s Juninho, that pays cash. Still, it was a great night despite the fact that we lost. I could handle Sundays like this al year round.
Juninho: We’re happy to have won in tough conditions. Given the state of the pitch, we were worried about injuries. But we did the job. I’m happy to have supplied a decisive pass and then score with a free kick. Also happy to start the year with a win.
Loïc Rémy: I’m stoked to have opened the scoring… 3 days after my birthday. For me it’s a great occasion to celebrate. It was a real cup match, with all the dangers that go with it. We expected a match like this.
