The head coach of AS Monaco Niko Kovacs commented on the scuffle of the club’s players against the players of Lyon in the coffin of the match of the 35th round of the French championship (2: 3).
“There was no need for that. My role as a coach is to protect young players, so I don’t blame them,” the club’s website says.
According to Kovacs, players will learn from their mistakes and understand that they need to remain calm.
“We will support them, because we will need them in the future,” said Kovacs.
Recall that after the final whistle, the players of both teams made a brawl on the field. As a result, Mattia de Sciglio and Marcela from Lyon, as well as Pietro Pellegri and Willem Zhebbel from Monaco, earned red cards.
