How do you rate your recent performances?
"I'm having a good period, like at Porto in 2013. I'm playing a lot and hope to continue for a long time yet. Passing on your experience, your ideas, helping out the younger players, who then repay you: that's what a team is."
Many people seem to think Monaco are already through after the 3-1 win at Arsenal...
"If we start thinking like that, we're done for. We'll need to repeat that great performance to go through. We saw Real Madrid in danger when they were beaten at home by Schalke (4-3)."
Is there one, defensive Monaco side in Ligue 1, and another, better side in the Champions League?
"We're able to play to our strengths against the big teams. Ligue 1 is cagey, very aggressive. Some teams are very technical. Others are more physical, playing a defensive counter-attacking game. It's tough to find space. So we look for winning strategies."
