The 23-year-old bagged a last-minute winner to secure a vital victory for Montpellier, who are just a solitary point away from securing the club's first ever Ligue 1 title.
“This wasn't the best goal of the season,” the former France Under-21 international told RMC Sport. “ But it's certainly the most important.
“This is a goal that moves us forward towards the championship. I just hope there will be another one next weekend against Auxerre.
“As we saw in the English Premier League, the title goes all the way down to the final moments; I just hope we don't lose it like that.”
Ait-Fana has made 10 Ligue 1 appearances for Montpellier this season, contributing two goals and an assist.
