Mollo was brought on as a 72nd-minute substitute at home against Lorient on Sunday as Saint-Etienne sought to keep the pressure on AS Monaco in the race for European qualification.

The midfielder made a near-instant impact, finding the net only two minutes after being brought on with a long-range deflected striker.

Speaking to Saint-Etienne’s official website after the match, the former Nancy man expressed his desire to play more of an attacking role for Christophe Galtier’s side.

“I want to take on the role of goal-scorer, to score more,” he began, ” I have always thought about making passes but, from now on, I know that I can be decisive in front of goal.

“I take a lot of pleasure in taking risks-especially in shooting.”
