The Red and Whites' midfielder faced the press before Saturday's meeting against Montpellier for the 9th matchday of Ligue 1 Conforama.
Winning is always good, there is more joy, the group lives much better. We must continue like this, but we must not forget ourselves. The ambitions we have can be reached but we must first string together victories.
There is room to fulfill the objectives set for us, but things are moving fast in both directions. We must take it match by match, all the teams are close to each other (in the table). It will remain difficult; it is at the end of the season that the measure of things will be taken.
At the beginning of the season, there was still this lack of confidence due to the past year. The most important thing was to start a positive cycle.
I know how the coach and the staff work. I was very well received, it's easier to be efficient like that.
I naturally have a more defensive role than Golovin and Fabregas. We each articulate our own qualities during the matches.
Moving to five at the back is reassuring. Against Marseille we lost but we have done good things overall. We have won two games in a row thanks to everyone's work.
I have grown a lot, I became a father. Loans at other clubs helped me build myself. It allowed me to be what I am today. One must always move forward. I always knew that to progress, I had to work hard and take care of my body.
Slimani and Ben Yedder are very close even off the field. They knew how to create this connection. What they have done in such a short time is impressive.
It will be very difficult to win in Montpellier, they are solid and it will require efficiency.
This club gave me a lot, I spent the best moments of my career here. It's a very important club for me. I see myself at AS Monaco for several seasons but we will see for the future.
