The incredible Monaco season continues. 48 hours after Thierry Henry's overthrow, 24 hours after Leonardo Jardim's return, the club went to Dijon this Saturday night to play a crucial match against another nominee. But neither Henry nor Jardim attended the bench. The Portuguese will take the team in hand tomorrow and was on the stands tonight along with Dmitri Rybolovlev and Vadim Vassilev. Frank Passy, deputy of Henry, who took over the operations management, the time of the match.
Men follow each other, but the results are the same. Monaco still lost 2-0 and to make matters worse, the Assimis finished at ten against eleven. Gagusk is mixed with the dramatic. Naldo got his second red card in just three games in League One. First in our league. "We had opportunities like in the last four or five games, but we always make the mistake it kills. We leave the opponent ahead, we run after the score and it is obvious that it is more complicated ", sorry for Passy after the match.
Jardim has a job
Because there is Monaco at this meeting, but there will be no cruel realism on both surfaces. Ballo-Toure, one of the new employees, has also made a terrible mistake, worth a target. "The thought problem comes when we look at the rankings. These players have quality. They are armed to be able to support themselves, but only a few clicks are needed to arrive quickly. There are still matches », maintains the temporary coach. He believes in the arrival of Jardim to restore the situation. "Not after 24 hours we had to change the system to work. On the contrary, players like stability. We will let Leonardo Jardim do things later. He does not speak in the dressing room. "
The Portuguese coach returns to the club and takes responsibility for the workforce he knows very well. Only three months ago, it would be difficult to remove a dangerous situation. Monaco is 19th, three points behind his closest pursuers, Caen and Amiens, who have not yet played on the 22nd day. Jardim will have to settle the basic defense problems of the ASM and restore confidence to a missing group. "With Thierry Henry we did not manage to change the situation and now we have to go on with a better spirit and fight together", Falcao summarizes. A League Cup reaction in Gengham (20th in League 1) is expected next Tuesday.
