AS Monaco defender Elderson Echiejile has urged his teammates to forget about the shock 2-2 draw against Reims last week and focus on finishing second in the Ligue 1 this season.
Echiejile who is expected to star for Monaco in Sunday's away clash with PSG, played down talks of revenge against the Ligue 1 champions elect.
"These two matches are in the past. We need to be focused on our Sunday's game. We will do our best to get a positive result," Echiejile began in an interview with Monaco's official website.
Monaco have lost their last two games against Laurent Blanc's men, but Echiejile is hoping that PSG's triumph in the Ligue 1 could see them get a positive result.
Echiejile added: "Yes, these games can change many things, but for PSG their players can relax a bit and can also still play better. We will see a small change, I think."
Echiejile also revealed that coach Leonard Jardim tasked Monaco players to work harder andu seal the final UEFA Champions League spot in the League.
"He told us to keep working hard and at all levels. We 're better on the pitch, but we are still missing something. But we must work even harder to get to our goal."
The Nigeria defender was also happy to be playing regularly since returning from injury in January.
"I feel good with each game I play and that makes me technically sound and physically balanced. I have gradually found my confidence back and I won't let myself down."Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
