As AS Monaco's Russian CEO, this meeting between CSKA Moscow and AS Monaco must be a little special…
Yes, that's true. A little more special even than our game against Zenit Saint-Petersburg two years ago, as I was born in Moscow. But it's first and foremost a Champions League match and indeed a very important one. We'll be doing our best to get a result here.
Is there a place in the last 16 at stake in this double-header of games against CSKA?
Yes exactly, but I'm also thinking of France's UEFA coefficient. Russia are just behind France in that ranking. We need to bear it in mind because defeats can be very costly. I'm a Monegasque and I'm a supporter of the French league!
