Leonardo Jardim spoke in a press conference after the victory (4-1) against Stade Brestois on the 8th matchday of Ligue 1 Conforama.
It's a positive night, the team played well, we had a lot of opportunities to score a second goal. But in the second half, we managed to make things happen, I think that the victory is deserved.
When we talk about pressure, for me the victories bring more smiles but we continue to work on the next match. From Monday we begin to prepare for the match against Montpellier.
The important thing today is that players are able to play well for more than 90 minutes consecutively to play with a more collective ethos. At the beginning of the season, it was more difficult.
Sincerely, I have a squad with many qualities. Several players had already worked with me in the past. Everyone gives their best. I prefer that the pressure be on me than on the players, the staff and the directors. I know this situation, you have to live with it.
Slimani is a mature player, he has physical ability and he plays instinctively. If you have to compare this with his time at Sporting, he has more composure in his game to finish the action and he makes more assists.
We have group rules like respect. Glik played, he is a good player despite the criticisms he suffered, like Fàbregas after Marseille. Everyone is important, they will have the opportunity to play with the coming sequence of matches.
Gelson is able to play in attack or on the wing. With the three midfielders, he has the opportunity to provoke, he likes to be in one on ones. I'm happy for him, his goal is a reward for his work. He always works hard.
I think we made more than 22 shots on goal, the goalkeeper made some stops too. We could have scored two more goals.
