I know I have to learn. It’s difficult for me now, I had two bad games in Prague and Geneva. I’m aware of that. With humility, I know I have to prove to the coach that I can do more. I’m confident about tomorrow.”Aouar spoke about his relationship with Mourinho.“The coach is a real person. I talk to him a lot and I’ve already said that the coach helps me a lot to learn to play with the team, to play different soccer. I like the coach’s winning mentality. I’m happy and proud to play for him and I also know that it’s hard for me not to have played a lot, but I hope that now I’ll be able to play great games for him, the team and the fans.”

The Lyon-trained player also gave his views on the differences between the Italian and French leagues.“I think Italian soccer is stronger than French, but I still have to learn to play here because it’s different.

Here it’s more tactical and technical, whereas French has more intensity and is more physical. I hope that in the future I’ll become a good player of Italian soccer.”
