Questioned about his understanding of the match, the Portuguese coach was again pragmatic: “The players made an effort. We were missing more impact than we were intensity. We missed passes, first touches…” before adding, “Our players are not used to playing against relegation. They like to have the ball and take space. But the number one key to winning this battle of against relegation is playing with passion.”
Then, when questioned on the plan of action to guarantee the team’s maintaining Ligue 1 status, he insisted on the need to “win individual duels.” The task promises to be complicated, but the coach is positive: “Fortunately, everything still depends on us. Of course, we must win again, But we have our destiny in our own hands,” said coach Jardim.
When asked about the discontent of the Monegasque supporters, he showed great understanding.
“It’s normal that they are not happy. Nobody is. It is very trying for those who love Monaco. There are two games left to save everything and we must all be together to do so.”
