INTERVIEWS Islam Slimani has guided Anderlecht to the quarter-finals of the Conference League. The Algerian striker scored the winning goal from an Amir Murillo cross to sink Villarreal's yellow submarine. The task was not easy for purple and white: "To grow, you have to suffer," explained the striker of the evening. 

Bending but not breaking
"We played a good game, we were solid. We defended very well and took our chance to score the goal. It's normal that it was draining against such a good team, with such strong players."

Continuing the adventure and playing without pressure
"We knew we could achieve something here if we followed the coach's plan. It was a well-constructed goal, I'm here to finish it. But the most important thing is qualification. Now we have to try to get as far as possible. We are a young team that can play without pressure."
