He said, “I don’t like to point the finger at any one player when we talk about the defensive side of things. It is a collective responsibility, and it involves the midfielders and attackers as well as the defenders,” Clément said ahead of the game in Corsica as Monaco aim to bounce back following their 1-0 loss at home to Stade de Reims last time out.

“It is not as if we conceded five goals against Reims, and we also hit the post twice and had a goal disallowed for an offside of a few centimeters. We need to look at what we can improve to get back to what was working for us before. We need to get back to basics to start getting good results again.”

After what was ultimately a straightforward win in Corsica, Philippe Clement’s men ended a run of four matches across all competitions without a victory. On the other hand, Ajaccio stay in the relegation zone after suffering a 1-0 defeat for the third game in a row, and simply must show greater bravery and guile if they are to mastermind a first successful top-flight survival since 2013.
