Video: ‘I Told Them We Had To Be 150-Percent’ – PSG Féminine Manager on Their Win Over Lyon

Olympique Lyonnais is the most dominant squad not only in women’s French football but the entire sport. 

Winners of the last five UEFA Women’s Champions League, Lyon had a near four-year unbeaten streak in Division 1 Féminine. It came to an end after Paris Saint-Germain Féminine won 1-0 courtesy of Marie-Antoinette Katoto’s goal. 

Paris Est Magique and with the fixture taking place at the Parc des Prince, it provided some magic for the capital club to end an 80-game unbeaten run by Lyon. 

After the match, manager Olivier Echouafni spoke to the media to discuss the feeling of finally picking up a victory over their rival. 

“We finally managed to defeat them in a match that was very intense,” Echouafni said. “We were keen to achieve a great performance in this place. It was also the moment to mark the spirits, and the girls made remarkable match in the self-sacrifice, the fact of surpassing themselves. I told them we had to be 150-percent. We managed to score, to make them doubt and maintain the result.”
