The week passed more pleasantly than the previous ones, but we worked just as hard. It’s sure that it creates a positive dynamic in the group. […] We’re not going to go there to try to pay attention to the goal average or whatever. We will try to go there to win, we have to give ourselves the means to do so in any case. You have to play […] You have to prepare carefully to succeed in a big match there. We will have to put in a big match, there is no doubt. Because they (editor’s note: Monaco) are playing their qualification for the Champions League, I don’t think they will take us lightly, so it will be up to us […] They lost the last match while still shaking Lyon. It was a huge game from both teams, I think with PSG and Brest they are the four best teams in the championship. There is Lille too. It’s powerful, it goes fast, there are very good players, some of whom are among the best European players in their position in my opinion […] We think about positive things. We still gave ourselves a chance to get out of this so we have to take it to the fullest. Afterwards we’re not crazy, we know that mathematically, it can end this weekend. But honestly, we didn’t think about that, but rather about giving ourselves the means to beat this Monaco team. »
