“It sure does feel good. I’m happy for the guys, it’s good for everyone’s morale even if it wasn’t easy, ”commented Wilfried Nancy.

Djordje Mihailovic is particularly satisfied with the context in which this victory was won.

“We came from behind twice in the first half. We scrambled to come back. We believed we could get this win. »

Of course, the team feared the rug would slip from under their feet when Cincinnati tied the game on a penalty shot with half an hour remaining.

“Naturally, we had a feeling of deja vu because we have already been in this kind of situation, recognized Djordje Mihailovic. But we reacted well with a good game between Kei and Joaquin to save the day. »

Saying he wanted to savor victory, Wilfried Nancy was a philosopher when it came to the goals scored and conceded by his team in the last two games.

“We scored seven goals and we allowed six, that’s more than one, so that’s good. More seriously, we were not strong enough defensively collectively. »


But precisely, if the defensive game is wavering at the moment, we can say that the attack is working at full speed.

“It’s no wonder we score, noted Nancy, guys don’t need a lot of chances to score. »

Moreover, Djordje Mihailovic scored twice, bringing his production to four goals this season, in all competitions, which he had managed in 34 games in MLS last year.

“I think I’ve always had that in me, it’s mostly a question of having the confidence to do it, mentioned the principal concerned. It takes confidence to perform these moves. »

Beyond his participation in three of the team’s four goals, the presence of Kei Kamara is significant for the team.

Mihailovic highlighted everything the player from Sierra Leone brings to his new formation.

“He brings his personality into the dressing room and that’s important in a young team. He knows the league well and that’s important even before we talk about the player.

“Before my goal, he showed patience and calm. He’s probably been in that situation thousands of times.”
