Jonathan’s goal on Saturday 14 December 2013 against Stade de Reims was his first in the French top flight since arriving at the club in the summer of 2011. This has come on the back of an impressive start to the season for Jonathan after an unsettled start to life at the Ligue 1 side.
In an exclusive interview for his official website Jonathan expressed his joy at breaking his goal duck – “As a defender my job is to stop the opponent scoring so its always a bonus when i get the opportunity to attack during set pieces. A bit disappointed we didn’t get the clean sheet and three points against Reims but happy to get my first goal in the league and my aim now is to help get more points for my club in the championship”
It has been a solid start to the 2013/14 campaign for Jonathan and the highlight coming recently when he marshalled the defence to end Paris Saint Germain’s long unbeaten run – “It has been a great start on a personal note and i am happy with my current form. I must thank the fans because they have supported me from the first day i got here and the aim is to repay them with good performances”
