Robert Moreno : "Balancing the team for the future"

Robert Moreno : "Balancing the team for the future"
Excerpts from the press conference held by Robert Moreno before traveling to Amiens this Saturday at 8 p.m. to play at the Stade de la Licorne.
The victory against Angers? We are AS Monaco, we have an obligation to win. I understand it, the players too. It's a good thing for our confidence, for the club and the fans.
I’ve watched the match two or three times. I'm very happy, we had two days to work. I've asked a lot of the players . I know it's difficult, even for a professional player, to assimilate all these requests.
I am very proud to see all the players defend. Conceding a goal? Yes, that’s a problem. We asked Wissam, Jove, all the attackers to have the humility to work for the team at a difficult time.
Angers took a lot of risks to equalize. If we ha scored a second goal, it was over for them. Angers has had many chance but not necessarily many clear opportunities. I counted three dangerous sequences.

We have to work to balance the team for the future. It's a job to do until the end of the season. It’s good to have this ability to switch tactical systems.
Slimani is ready to play on Saturday. In each session, he has trained very well. He can play. It's a good problem to have, I'm glad to have many attacking options.
Fofana is a good player, so it's easy for him to adapt. We needed him, he is very young, like all the new recruits. It’s good for the team to have players with that will to play.

Those who train well, they will play. I will choose the players who are the best. I will not rotate to rotate. Here at Monaco, there are many good players.
I saw the match against Lyon, Amiens did some good things. There are many good teams in Ligue 1. The level is close among all the teams. It’s difficult for everyone. If we can win three matches, we can move up the table.
Rise. Risk. Repeat.
