Youssouf Fofana : "There for the team"

Youssouf Fofana : "There for the team"
Extracts from the press conference by Youssouf Fofana two days before the trip to Dijon this Saturday, February 22 at 8:00 p.m.
We try to do our best in every match. I think there are a lot of positives for the future. We are getting closer to the end of the season, the matches are very close. We must continue to be careful.
When a team recruits in the winter transfer window, it has a lot of requirements in the short term, I'm ready for for that. The instructions given to me have offensive and defensive components and are necessarily different from those I had in my old club.
To be honest, I feel more comfortable in a 4-3-3 than in a 4-4-2. This system allows me to take up various positions, with a well defined role. In any case, I am there for the team and are there when they need me.

I have had an atypical journey, with a difficult adolescence. If I had been told 5 years ago that I would be here I would not have believed it. I have known football and I have seen it slip away several times. I'm glad to be here, I have a course of action to follow.
My level of technical awareness must be high, a mistake in the midfield can be very costly. I’m surrounded by great players, I try to make the most of their qualities to be stronger.
I've had two assists, but it was mostly the attackers who made them such. Regarding Ben Yedder and Slimani, this duo is incredible! I have no words to describe the quality they have together.
My personal goal is obviously to play in Europe with AS Monaco. Discovering the group stages of the Europa League or the Champions League would be a matter of satisfaction for me.
Rise. Risk. Repeat.
