Claudio Ranieri urges AS Monaco to be "slow"

Claudio Ranieri heaps praise on Mounir Obbadi and Radamel Falcao during AS Monaco's 2-1 win over Lyon on Sunday.

Claudio Ranieri has told his AS Monaco players that they need to think smart and "slow the game down" when in control following their win over Lyon.

Having thrown away a two-goal lead to draw with Sochaux the previous weekend, goals from Mounir Obbadi and Radamel Falcao helped the principality club to a 2-1 victory at Stade Louis II on Sunday, despite Bafetimbi Gomis' second-half response for Les Gones.

"We played well in the first half and I said to the players that we were in the same situation as against Sochaux when we were leading by two goals at half-time and that we needed to keep our focus," Ranieri told reporters. "Gomis scored a good goal but in the end we won.

"Everyone needs to keep the ball and slow the game down when necessary. Obbadi is phenomenal, a top player. Falcao worked hard for the team with his pressing and protecting the ball and people need to think a bit more about him."

Monaco are in action on Wednesday when they face Reims in the Coupe de France.
