Cape Town - Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim relished his side's 3-1 win over Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday that saw them progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.

The French side were trailing City 5-3 after a first leg defeat, but Kylian Mbappe, Fabinho, and Tiemoue Bakayoko scored to ensure Monaco went through on away goals with a 6-6 aggregate.

Monaco also eliminated Arsenal in 2015, and beat Tottenham twice during the Champions League group stage this campaign.

Jardim said: "Against English teams we have good results. We beat Arsenal, City and Tottenham, three strong teams. Today is one of my best moments as a coach but I hope it will not be the last.

"It is difficult to play against City and not concede but we are the best attacking side in the world and I told my players if they scored three goals they would qualify.

"They believed it and played really well. Now we are very happy."
