Vanderson: "Put in the same level as against Marseille"

Vanderson: "Put in the same level as against Marseille"
After delivering a very high level display against Olympique de Marseille, in AS Monaco's victory at the Vélodrome (1-0), the young Brazilian full-back spoke to the media the day before the round of 16 first leg of the Europa League against Braga.

He has already shown plenty in his two months in the Principality! After scoring in Ligue 1 against Montpellier, in his third appearance with AS Monaco, Vanderson recently offered himself a double of assists in the Coupe de France against Nantes. He was again the author of a solid performance this Sunday against OM in a  1-0 win, the young Brazilian fullback (20 years old) has integrated perfectly into Philippe Clement’s collective. This is what he confirmed at a press conference, on the eve of the Europa League round of 16 first leg against Braga.

His arrival at AS Monaco

I must say that my adaptation is going well, because I was very well received by the group. The fact that several players speak Portuguese at AS Monaco also facilitated my integration into the squad. They support me a lot. Little by little I am trying to develop myself and show my qualities, and the fact that there are Portuguese speakers here helps me a lot.

Room for improvement

I am a growing young player, and I work hard to improve every day. I’m here to learn, and besides, I’m lucky to be trained by a coach who brings me a lot. But, I think I have room for improvement defensively. But I’m doing everything to improve myself in this area, and I’m sure I’ll reach the level I want.

He is a very intelligent player, who quickly remembers instructions, who is very eager to learn and who will certainly have a great career. He will probably make a few mistakes, that's normal, but we are a club that wants to give young players the chance to grow and improve.

On Braga

We have studied this Braga side and know their strengths very well. They are in a good position in the Portuguese league and it is a club that is used to European matches. It will certainly be a challenging match, but I think if we show the same level as against Olympique de Marseille in Ligue 1-0, we can have a good result here.

His first match in the Europa League

It is true that this will be a first for me in the competition and in Europe. This is a personal goal that I wanted to achieve. Monaco is a great club, which always wants to win, so we obviously want to go as far as possible in the Europa League. Everything is new to me, as it’s only been a short time since I arrived on this continent. We will do everything we can to win.
