Toulouse performance delights Alain Casanova

Alain Casanova says that his Toulouse team should have won by more than 2-1 scoreline against Saint-Etienne.

Toulouse coach Alain Casanova has praised his team's performance after their 2-1 victory over Saint-Etienne.

Etienne Capoue and Wissam Ben Yedder scored the goals that saw le Tef register their first win of the new Ligue 1 campaign.

Casanova later paid homage to Capoue, whom he believes has grown as a player since his call-up to the France squad.

"The victory is totally merited. We controlled the match completely and could have won 3-0 or 4-0," said Casanova.

"I am really satisfied with the team as a whole. We were superior to Saint-Etienne over the course of the game and the success is logical.

"As for Capoue, his call-up to the national team has done him a lot of good. He has taken on extra responsibility and grown in maturity. He knows he has a different status now and he has to be irreproachable."

Toulouse travel to Nancy next Saturday.
