Igor Tudor, OM coach, after victory in Monaco (3-2) : “It’s a great victory. We could have scored from the start. It was a very open game. Both teams could win. Those who came off the bench brought. I am very happy with them. We really wanted this victory.
(On Dimitri Payet) He was decisive. As I said, the encounter could fall on one side or the other. Monaco was very strong. He (Payet) brought this mental strength. It’s a new thing this season. We had great mental strength to go for the victory. When we equalized, the players were not yet satisfied. They wanted to go for the victory. We end up with Bamba (Dieng), Alexis (Sanchez), Dimitri (Payet), (Cengiz) Under, and attacking full-backs. We wanted to go for the win.
“The team is still alive”
I draw a rather positive assessment of this start to the season. All matches have been pretty good, even in the Champions League. We created an identity. The team is still alive. We try to give positive football. We always want to attack and score. Due to a bit of bad luck, we are missing a few points. But there is a good base, which will allow us to grow. In addition, we will have the opportunity to work more because we will have fewer matches to play (due to the elimination of all European competitions). »
