Leonardo Jardim appeared in front of the media two days before Matchday 6's trip to Reims.
This week there has been a lot of work. We spent time with the players to listen to them and hear their feelings. Oleg Petrov also spoke with them to convey the message that we believe in this squad, that they are able to meet this goal.
It is a difficult moment but I accept the supporters' criticism. They were with us in great moments such as the title; they have reasons to be dissatisfied. I think we have good supporters who have supported us. We are as unhappy as they are about this situation.
We have players with experience and quality. We are not yet a collective, we are working in this direction. I am here to make this a competitive team.
Fabregas is a player who has a great history. He may not have had a good match, but we are counting on him, he is an important player in the squad. We must think of the AS Monaco collective.
The most important thing is to have the desire to defend well collectively. Everyone needs to defend. We are in trouble in this aspect, of our plays; we still have work to do. When the results as a team do not happen, no one is at their level. Everyone can do more.
We still need to work on our planning in particular. The final group did only five, six training sessions together. We will try to find a balance. We must forget the past, the most important thing is the present and winning games. In football, it's easier to progress with victories.
