Leonardo Jardim : "The club comes first"

Leonardo Jardim : "The club comes first"
Leonardo Jardim answered questions from journalists two days before the reception of Stade Rennais, about the squad, the defeat to Montpellier, Kamil Glik, Stade Rennais; here are the excerpts.
Everyone has returned from the international break. No player was injured during these matches. Few of our internationals played the 2 matches in their entirety. So everything is going well at the level of the availability of the players. We have three players suspended: Gelson, Ballo-Toure and Golovin. We will work with the rest of the group for this match.
Leonardo JardimSquad update
In football, we need to work hard. But also to work in a good atmosphere. In the last match the team was not at the necessary level in contrast the matches against Nice and Brest. In football we have to prove ourselves every week, during all matches. This is the message I give to the players.
Leonardo JardimHis message to the players
In Montpellier we had a first half of very poor quality in terms of intensity and commitment. We improved in the second half; we had chances. But it was not enough to level to the score. We must remain serious and focused in all games. I am particularly disappointed with this defeat, because the squad was full compared to the beginning of the season. Our squad is better than last season. I am convinced that the team will still progress and go back to the top of the table.
Leonardo JardimOn the loss to Montpellier

I protect all players. Whether they are regular starters or substitutes. All players are important to me. Kamil Glik is a great defender, he is physically strong and strong mentally. We are talking about an international player, an undisputed starter for a country already qualified for Euro 2020. He has my full confidence. He knows he is not at his best, but he is trying hard to find himself and help the team. He is a player who gives everything at every training, every game. He is a hard worker, a professional at 100%, an example for other players.
Leonardo JardimOn the subject of Kamil Glik
Last season, the match against Rennes was the last of my first period here, but I do not think about it. When I think of Rennes, I think of the tough opponent we face on Sunday. I do not think about my work first and then the club, I always think about the club first and then the rest. The club comes first, I have always said.
Leonardo JardimRegarding Stade Rennais
Rise. Risk. Repeat.
