Caio Henrique: "Seal qualification in front of our supporters"

Caio Henrique: "Seal qualification in front of our supporters"
With seven assists already in all competitions this season, the AS Monaco Brazilian full-back spoke to the media on the eve of Real Sociedad's visit in the Europa League.

He is building on last season with the Rouge et Blanc. With two assists away to PSV Eindhoven (2-1 success), Caio Henrique is becoming more and more decisive in the opposing final third, with seven assists already in all competitions. It’s a good run of form that he would like to build on, in order to help AS Monaco get back to winning ways, on the occasion of a visit from Real Sociedad this Thursday, on the 5th round of the Europa League, at the Stade Louis-II ( 9 p.m.), saying as much at a pre-match press conference.

It’s true that I’m on a good run of form lately (seven assists in all competitions), and I still hope to deliver a lot of assists to my teammates. But as I said recently, I would also like to score my first goal with AS Monaco.

On the development of his role in the team

I think my role has grown in the squad since last season. In my first season with AS Monaco, I needed a period of adaptation, time to be able to become familiar this new league. Today things are different, I do have a different place in the squad, among the leaders. It’s true that I’m on a good run of form lately (seven assists in all competitions), and I still hope to deliver a lot of assists to my teammates. But as I said recently, I would also like to score my first goal with AS Monaco. It’s a moment that I’m looking forward to.

On the reverse fixture in San Sebastian

We remember the first leg against this Real Sociedad side. We knew it would be a very difficult match, against a great team which is top of La Liga and who likes to keep the ball. So it won’t be an easy game tomorrow either. But we are playing at home, and we must impose ourselves to seal our qualification. So we’re clearly going to play for the win.

Yes clearly, I think that's one more motivation to win this match. Firstly because we will be playing at home, in front of our supporters here at the Stade Louis-II. And then because there is the possibility of finishing in first place, and avoiding playing more rounds to advance to the round of 16.

Is qualification an additional motivation?

Yes clearly, I think that’s one more motivation to win this match. Firstly because we will be playing at home, in front of our supporters here at the Stade Louis-II. And then because there is the possibility of finishing in first place, and avoiding playing more rounds to advance to the round of 16 of the competition. So obviously we really want to go for this win.

Rise. Risk. Repeat.
