Speaking to reporters following AS Monaco’s 3-1 victory over Manchester City, Vice President Vadim Vasilyev described his emotions about reaching the quarter finals.
“It is an exploit against a great European team, with an enormous budget. We were worthy of our story. I am very proud of our players. It is a victory for our work and for our squad, a close-knit team. We are ready to play anyone, the Champions’ League is a bonus, but the priority is the league. We need our supporters just as much in Ligue 1 as in the Champions’ League. We say tonight that they can be fantastically loud. French football advances with us too. My heart is with Lyon in the Europa League vs AS Roma.”
