Leonardo Jardim: "The fight to conquer"

Leonardo Jardim: "The fight to conquer"
The coach appeared in front of the media two days before the visit from Bordeaux (J28). Excerpts.

“The goal is always the same. Take the three points. We must forget the context and our current run to focus solely on the match against Bordeaux. It’s a team that has gone through a lot of changes. We must be focused and play the 90 minutes thoroughly.

“Their group will be very motivated after the change of coach. When a new coach arrives, everyone wants to have their place. This gives a positive energy to a team. We must be engaged and have the fight to conquer.

“I’m happy with the second half of my players in Angers. They managed to keep their cool and take the point from the draw.”

“Radamel Falcao is a goalscorer. Of course, we expect a lot from him because he is decisive in front of the goal. He is a leader on the field. I like it. He is always very involved and professional. Besides, he is often the last to leave the training.

“Everyone has the ambition to play. Football is 11 on the field but the whole group must be ready. It’s a mental job to stay focused. “

Rise. Risk. Repeat.
