Philippe Clement, Monaco coach, after the victory against OL: “Solidarity was there”

” This third straight win does it revive you in your season?
No, it’s confirming and continuing match after match, big matches, and it’s not easy after playing Belgrade, where the match and the trip were very tough. To have played with such energy, it was not easy.

Have you found anything better in your line of attack?
Yes. It’s normal. There are new players, with whom you have to create connections. And I see more and more, even in training. But there aren’t many, because of our schedule. Automatisms are created normally, when we play more together. It’s not perfect yet, but I think everyone who watched this game enjoyed it because both teams wanted to win.

Is this first victory of the season at the Louis-II stadium a relief?
The first also played at eleven, in the Championship. This gives an explanation. There was no doubt on my part. Playing at Louis-II or outside, we are always motivated.

“We can still do better in the actions with the ball and in the finish”

Can we say that your team was more united than brilliant?
We need both. We can still do better in the actions with the ball and in the finish. The discipline was there, and the last twenty minutes were more difficult because I had to replace several players and that didn’t help. But the solidarity was there. Lyon finished with almost seven forwards.

You conceded twenty strikes in Lyon. Is this also an area where you still need to improve?
It is also the strength of Lyon. When you can prevent him from being dangerous in our rectangle, that’s good enough. From a distance, it cannot be avoided. But we no longer have a chance of stopping these shots from afar with our goalkeeper. »
