Ben Yedder calls Troyes win his ‘last home match’

Following Saturday's crucial result, Toulouse forward Wissam Ben Yedder said that his club doesn't deserve relegation and confirmed that he will be leaving in the summer.

Toulouse's crucial victory against already-relegated Troyes saw them leapfrog GFC Ajaccio out of the relegation zone by virtue of a superior goal difference.

A victory in next weekend's away fixture against ninth-placed Anger will see Pascal Dupraz's side retain their spot in the French top flight, and the player most likely to inspire this result would be the club's top scorer, Wissam Ben Yedder.

The 25-year-old has had a remarkable year, given the quality of his side's performances; across all competitions, the centre-forwrd has made 40 appearances, scoring 22 goals and providing five assists.

Ben Yedder spoke to the Ligue 1 official website after the match.

"These are the moments you need to make the most of," he said.

"This is a club that deserves to stay in Ligue 1. For the moment it's all very good but we mustn't get carried away. There is a final to come against Angers," the player, who is almost certain to leave the club at the end of the season, added.

"The whole team played their part although I would have liked to score for my last match here. The most important thing is that I participated in our victory.

"This is a club that has given me so much and I have given a lot to the club. I make the most of it every day. They know the mark I have left on this club. They know who I am and what I am worth. That is the most important thing. I always give my all and work hard.

"Things happen for a reason," he concluded.

Ben Yedder has been linked with a move to London, with both Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United expressing interest in the player.
