Leonardo Jardim, Monaco coach
It was the game we expected, very intense. Arsenal took advantage of our mistakes to score but we were expecting that. We deserve to go through; we won 3-1 away. Arsenal only won 2-0 so we deserve it.
In the quarter-final draw, all the teams will want to play Monaco. For me it will be the first time I have experienced the quarter-finals of the Champions League. We have to give credit to the players for what they did. Nobody was expecting us to be here. It's a great reward. I enjoyed playing in front of a full stadium. I hope that for the next game our fans will be here again.
Arsène Wenger, Arsenal manager
The performance was enough today but it was a difficult task. By half-time the game could have been ours but there were too many missed chances.
It was a close call. Monaco were very efficient. I would like to underline the level of energy and application by my team. We were beaten by a team to whom we wish good luck. We were over-confident in the first leg, we were not cautious enough. Congratulations to Monaco. We did what we wanted to do but we were unlucky.
We want to win every game, we did fight tonight, we did what we had but lacked a bit of freshness in the second half. I am very disappointed to go out. Even though it is a positive game, we are out.
