FROM 2011 TO TODAY
"When I took over the club, in December 2011, the team was bottom of Ligue 2. Since earning promotion back to Ligue 1 in 2013, the club has finished in the top three every season, played in Europe and was even among the top eight clubs in Europe in 2015. I think we can call that a success. For sure, we need to improve further to win trophies, but I'm very proud to have taken over AS Monaco to restore the prestige the club deserves. I intend to stay at the helm of AS Monaco for a long time yet, because it gives me great pleasure. And I want to win trophies!"
"The return to Ligue 1, because AS Monaco didn't belong in Ligue 2. Then qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Champions League after beating Arsenal in 2015. And finally, last August, beating Villarreal to qualify for the Champions League and following that up with the win against PSG. That was a wonderful week. But I hope to see even better times in the future."
"I want the club to qualify for Europe every year, preferably the Champions League. But I don't want to be content with second or third place. I'd like to win the French league title again. It will be difficult this year as PSG still have considerable financial clout. But I allow myself to dream and am convinced that if we work hard, we can achieve that goal."
