"It’s quite a close group with four good sides. Hopefully we’ll have our say in how it turns out. We could have ended up in a much tougher group, although the teams we’ll be playing have experience in European cup competitions. It’ll be hard, but we’ll be aiming to do as well as we can and mark Monaco’s return to the Champions League by qualifying for the knockout stages."
"On a personal level, I can’t wait to get started. When I think back to Ligue 2 three years ago, I’m proud to be part of the AS Monaco team that’s returning to this magical tournament after nearly ten years away."
