Leonardo Jardim appeared in a press conference two days before the opening of the championship against Olympique Lyonnais.
I think we had a good pre-season. We have worked hard and played friendlies against good European teams(Porto, Braga, Valence, Everton..).
I preach hard work. That is the most important. There are many examples of teams having a bad season and picking up on the next one. It's a new season. A new challenge. We must take it match after match and it starts Friday against Lyon.
Panzo worked very well during the pre-season and showed some nice things. It may be a solution for the coming season.
Lyon? This is the third-placed squad of last season, a big team that always has the ambition to play first place; it will not be easy, but as always we will do our best to win this match.
I work to win and to give the best results to AS Monaco. The club must be above all. My goal is for this group to be strong collectively and not just a sum of individualities.
