Speaking to Amazon Prime, via Paris Fans, Balogun said: “Yes, it’s a crazy night for my team and me. Coming here, we were on a good streak and we wanted it to continue. As you said, this is a special night for me, my family.
“I had spoken to Thierry before the game and tried to follow his advice. I’m so happy to have been able to score today!”
On his goal celebration, he said: “Before the match, I said to myself that we had to do this. If I scored tonight, I had to celebrate out of respect for Thierry Henry.”
With his strike against Paris Saint-Germain, Balogun took his tally to 11 from 19 appearances in the Ligue 1 – a goal every 121 minutes.
