Kovacs: "I want to see such a Monaco, one in which the substitutes are able to decide the outcome of the match"Arahamilian
Monaco head coach Niko Kovacs commented on the team's victory over Clermont (3: 1) in the 8th round of the French championship.
“We managed to score the first goal from the rally, which we are used to playing, although at that moment I was not completely satisfied with the mood and attitude to the game that the team showed. The second half was much better. It was very important to win. We want to continue the streak and achieve new victories.
It seems to me that at the beginning we were not compact enough. Clermont had moments, they could have put an end to this meeting, but we managed to hold out. After that, we created a series of moments.
In the second half, there were changes, and the substitutes finished their work. This is the kind of “Monaco” I want to see - one in which the substitutes are able to go out and decide the outcome of the match, as it was last season, "the press service of the club quotes Kovacs as saying.
Monegasques have 11 points and are in 9th place. Clermont have 9 points and 15th position.
