Speaking to Canal Plus after Monaco’s 0-0 draw with Reims, French midfielder Tiémoué Bakayoko explained why he and the players went to speak to the away support.
“We just went to listen to them. We can understand their disappointment. We really had the heart to win the three points tonight. We can understand their impatience. It was important to talk to them, listen to what they have to say. At the end, we applauded them because they continue to motivate us, be there for us. We must really try to pay them back as quickly as possible.”
He then spoke about Leonardo Jardim:
“This is the same coach that I have known for five years. He is still very motivated, he really wants to take us as high as possible. He is close to us, he tries to give us confidence. I really want everyone to support him, that we try to be with him and to listen to him. He has proved that he is a truly great manager. I want him to be here for several more seasons.”
