Monaco Coach Sasa Obradovic Reflects on Team’s Victory Over Real Madrid

Sasa Obradovic (coach of Monaco, winner of Real Madrid in the Euroleague on Friday evening, 98-76): This is perhaps one of the best matches we have ever played at home. Everyone contributed, the players who came off the bench contributed good minutes. I am really happy with this victory. I’m happy to see Elie (Okobo) back, Jordan Loyd showed how important he is to our game.

(Replayed on Mike James) I didn’t mention him because every game you talk to me about him. We saw how much he brings this team together. He is currently the best player at his position in the Euroleague. He can claim the title of MVP of the season if he stays healthy. He did everything, he defended, played on both sides. This victory is not the start of a second part of the season. There are still a lot of matches left. A match like this serves to gain confidence, to rediscover our chemistry from past seasons. This is what will allow us to obtain the same kind of results.

“I don’t know if the perfect match exists but we’re not far from that”

Yakuba Ouattara (captain of Monaco): It’s a match that counts double, triple. It’s a special feeling. We are all super happy. We had a good week of work where we went a little harder than usual. I don’t know if the perfect match exists but we’re not far from it. Everyone gave their all this evening. Mike James knew how to find us, put us all at ease. We know our little quirks. We must celebrate this victory but not forget that we have a margin over no one.

Vincent Poirier (Real Madrid interior): Monaco hurt us, we didn’t take our shots and we failed in defense. They scored a lot of points in the paint. They were aggressive, they played their basketball, they put us in difficulty, it happens, we have to move on to the next game. It’s not worrying for the future, it’s a defeat, we can’t win everything, it allows us to see what we did wrong to continue to progress.
