Bouanga hails Saint-Etienne after thrashing Nice

Denis Bouanga has praised his Saint-Etienne side following their 4-1 victory against Nice in Wednesday’s Ligue game at the Stade Geoffroy Guichard.

The Gabonese got a brace in the encounter, opening the scoring from the penalty spot before notching his second in the second half.

The victory helped Claude Puel’s men bounce back from their elimination from the Europa League and moved them to fifth on the league table after gathering 25 points from 16 matches.

"We put all the preparations in place to win this match; we got our heads back up after our elimination in the Europa League,” Bouanga told the Ligue 1 website.
