Today I saw a reaction from the group. At the moment, it is not smiling on us, we do not have the wind in the back, but we have to work hard to collect points. I am always positive, realistic, I look forward and I am sure the situation will turn around. It’s a question of time.
AS Monaco coach
What is your analysis of this match?
Defensively, we played a good game, being very solid and conceding very few dangerous situations. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful for our big opportunity late in the game on Kevin’s head. Right now, we are struggling to create and transform opportunities. Our goal was clearly to win, but if you can’t win, it’s important not to lose.
Oh Nooo! Caio places a very good ball on Kévin’s head. But our attacker lacks precision on his gesture.

What did you miss today?
We lacked a bit of determination and we were a bit too predictable in the build. We must therefore try to pose more problems for the opponent, put more presence and more pressure in the opponent’s area as in the last quarter of an hour. We have to force our destiny.
Did you appreciate the character shown by your team?
Today I found a reaction from the group. At the moment, it is not smiling on us, we do not have the wind in the back, but we have to work hard to collect points. I am always positive, realistic, I look forward and I am sure the situation will turn around. It’s a question of time. We mention in this team, in these players, and we will soon put on a better face.
The classification of Ligue 1 is still very tight …
This championship is tight, it’s true. We’re in the middle of the table, it’s not our goal, but it can change very quickly. Now there is the international break, I hope that my selected players will take the opportunity to shine and return to the Club with full confidence.
