“I feel very good, a bit tired after Wednesday’s game. I’m ready to help the team on Sunday. It felt good to play 90 minutes, I worked hard for that. Good for me, I’m still going to improve. I’m confident in my abilities, I’m not afraid.
It was very difficult for me to see the team struggle and not be able to do anything. I had time to analyze the team’s game and know where to help them. I’ve always tried talking to players but it’s always different when you’re hurt.”
“We players like matches like Sunday. We’re going to Marseille to win. We’re just focusing on ourselves and taking advantage of this moment to really start our season. We need to earn points. We have the opportunity to start our season again and we want to win every game.
The Portuguese national team remains an objective for me. I will work to return to the coach’s list.
The extension of my contract is a sign of confidence on the part of the club. I am here to help AS Monaco. I feel the confidence of the coach, all the staff. It gives me extra motivation. “
