Monaco has been alternating between good and bad for several weeks, far from the steamroller of the second half of last season. Beaten in Brest last week, the Monegasques hope to get three points this Sunday on the lawn of Reims to get closer to the podium.
“Every day is a different day in football and obviously for the seasons it’s the same, some are alike and others are not. It is not related only to AS Monaco. I think all the time, even at night, i’m trying to figure out why some things don’t work so well “, detailed Niko Kovac about the difficulties of his team.
“Last season, our way of thinking and playing was more automatic, we developed our game without really thinking and without restraint. Today we are asking ourselves too many questions. For the moment, I have the impression that my team is a bit stuck in the head. Last season we played a lot more spontaneously. “
Not to miss
The Croatian technician hopes to be able to find solutions in order to allow his team to revive as quickly as possible, those who claim European places at the end of the season.
“When you want to accomplish special things, that means simplifying things. You don’t have to complicate your life and get to the point, play simple again., continued the former Bayern boss. This is the most important thing that we have to manage to change. We have to make it easier for ourselves. We have to create more problems for the opponent, be much more determined too. We have to go back to the fundamentals. “
However, Kovac is not too worried, highlighting the youth of its workforce and the lessons that it can learn for the future. “I think it’s a process again for our young players, they learn how to handle the motivation and the pace on their own, performing every three days. It’s totally different from performing one or two. times a week, that’s the high level “, he stressed.
“As a coach and even at Club level, you don’t have a lot of time, I’m aware of that. We would like to be successful now, right away, but it’s not that simple. You have to get out of this situation. It’s the first time that my players have faced this. But I’m sure it’s a passage that will help them in their careers, to progress. It’s part of their training, of their learning process. “
