Extracts from the press conference held by Robert Moreno two days before the reception of Montpellier this Friday, February 14 at 8.45 p.m. on the pitch of Stade Louis-II.
Slimani? Scoring is always very important. He is training with us on a good level. It was not a good situation for the team that Slimani was not in the squad. I want to have all the players available.
I have been here for 1 month and two weeks. We have worked a lot on the defensive aspects of the team. I think if we defend well, we will win matches. If you look at the big teams in Europe, they don't concede a lot of goals. To devlop an attacking game with quality, you have to start by defending well. Otherwise, you have to score a lot of goals to win.
We work to control the ball but it not something that happens in a few days. It is a long-term process.
When you're winning, it's always easier to work.
We are all focused on Montpellier. Of course it is an important match. Then we will be focused on the next one and so on. We will see at the end of the season if we have qualified for the Champions League. Montpellier is a direct opponent for the podium. If we win, we will advance up the table. They're a great team with very clear, basic but very well executed tactics.
When you think you’re the favorite in a match, for me that’s the time you start losing it. Each match is a final. It’s very important to stay humble.
