Jardim: I am not thinking about Monaco v PSG

Leonardo Jardim insists Monaco’s focus is on their own form and not Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the sides’ meeting.

The French champions are four points off the pace at the top of the table despite Saturday’s 6-0 demolition of Guingamp, with PSG winning 5-0 at Angers earlier in the day.

Monaco welcome Unai Emery’s men to the principality at the end of the month but Jardim is not thinking that far ahead.

“After 12 matches, Paris are above the others; behind, there are good teams,” the Monaco coach said after this latest victory. “We have maintained our level.

“But I am not thinking about Paris now. The gap is at four points – it will be a very important match to get to one point. But first, we have to win at Amiens.”

Guido Carrillo started up front and scored twice in Radamel Falcao’s absence and Jardim took issue with the constant focus on the Colombian.

“What is wrong? It’s a group effort,” he said when asked about top scorer Falcao. “I have always said it and will always say it.

“Of course I would like [Falcao] to always be there, but Guido scored twice and won a penalty.”

Monaco visit Amiens and then host RB Leipzig in the Champions League before facing PSG.
