Philippe Clement: "A victory full of determination and solidarity"
Speaking at a press conference, the AS Monaco coach analyzed his team's latest victory, away to Lille (2-1) on Friday to kick off the 36th round of Ligue 1.

And it’s eight! Victorious in Lille (2-1) on Friday to open the 36th round of Ligue 1, AS Monaco won their eighth consecutive victory and remain more than ever in the race for a place on the podium. After this match, Philippe Clement delivered his analysis and spoke of his satisfaction at a press conference.

Hello coach. How did you see this match?

It was not our best match, but in my opinion it was a victory won with the determination and solidarity of the whole team, because we gave everything to take these three points. We knew before the match that it would be difficult to play against this team, which has produced several great performances this season, especially at home. Lille was a vengeful team, with players who wanted to show their qualities. Winning this match, in these circumstances, is therefore very important. I would also like to thank our supporters, who again came in large numbers and made their voices heard throughout the match.


Your team has recorded their 8th consecutive victory…

We are happy about that, but we are looking to the future and the most important thing is these last two games to play. We must keep the same spirit and the same determination. All these victories are not the result of chance, they are due to the work of the entire squad, which shows a lot of solidarity as they are in good physical shape. Of course, we would’ve preferred to be in this position several months ago, but we have to stay focused and think about the game against Brest, without calculating.

What did you think of the performance of Aurélien Tchouameni, scorer of a double?

For a coach, it’s easy to work with Aurélien because he always wants to improve. With the whole squad, we’ve worked a lot on finishing and shooting, so I’m very happy that he scored in this phase of the game. It’s due to this sort of repetition over the past weeks, but also to his concentration on wanting to do things well. He also almost scored with a header, which is another aspect that we still have to work on. But Aurélien is exceptional in his desire to progress and each month he is taking new steps, which promises him a great future.

Rise. Risk. Repeat.
