AS Monaco was pleased with the Coupe de France win on penalties after a 2-2 draw against Rennes with head coach Thierry Henry revealing that he was getting the quality of play he had been seeking from his charges.
“That’s exactly how we want to play. Three in the axis, and with two lateral rising and centering. We were active in the first period. Of course, there was this penalty shootout. Henry told the media.
“When the defender came forward, I thought it would be a shame if it stopped on them. It turned out for us. Loïc (Badiashile) has been extraordinary.
“He ensures what he has to do in the Cup. Rony Lopes was good too. He made it possible to trace the block. It had been a while since we had seen that. Now, you have to pay attention to him to continue.
“Sometimes we have heard the public not be happy. But we put the ball back on the ground and we played. In addition, we took a goal and we finally reacted. Before, we did not know how to do it. This time, we did it”.
