Quebec’s Marc-Antoine Dequoy, who stole the show after the Montreal Alouettes’ Gray Cup win, continued his message of love to the Montreal team’s fans.
“I’m so proud to see the support that the population has for our sports teams,” Dequoy said Wednesday, during the parade of champions, on TVA Sports. This is the pride of our people.
“We are so happy when the team is successful that we come to cheer them on. Today we look at the world that came to encourage us, it shows what kind of world we are and the support we have is incredible. I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. It’s amazing because we won together.
“They are 100% proud. They are proud of the Alouettes regardless of the difficulties we had during the year. It’s normal for us to be criticized, we are professional athletes, that’s quite normal. In the end, the result is that we won. We beat two teams that nobody gave us a chance. We are used to it, generally no one gives us a chance. To see the pride in the Alouettes, to see the pride of Montreal and Quebec. I’m so happy.”
The Alouettes beat the Blue Bombers 28-24 to capture the coveted trophy for the first time since 2010.
