AS Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim says his side are not going to shy away from their attacking style during the Champions League semi-finals.

The French side progressed to the tournament’s final four with a 6-3 aggregate victory over Borussia Dortmund, making it 12 goals in the knockout stage of the competition.

And Jardim says he wants his side to remain aggressive despite some of the world’s biggest clubs remaining.

“All the players played to a high level and I’m very happy with the performance of all of them,” Jardim is quoted as saying by UEFA.com.

“At this level you cannot set limits for your players. We are representing a whole country.

“France isn’t used to having teams reach this stage of the competition.”

“It could have been 5-3 or 6-3 because both teams missed several chances,” he added. “We knew that they give a lot of space and we took advantage from it.

“Now, regardless of who we will take on next, we will be facing a very experienced team.

“We played a very solid game, we were in control but we showed ambition. We were always looking for the extra goal, that is the way we play, it is in our DNA.

“Our rivals will want to draw us [on Friday] but our ambition is to enjoy it and play with our attacking qualities like we always do.”
