Monaco manager Robert Moreno has emphasised the importance of Islam Slimani to Monaco after his stand-out performance against Montpellier.

The 31-year-old scored the solitary goal that gave the Monegasques a 1-0 victory against Montpellier in Friday’s Ligue 1 game.

The forward has been in scintillating form since his summer loan move from Leicester City. His nine goals and seven assists this season has helped the Red and Whites move closer to a European spot.

The Spanish tactician has praised the Algeria international following his impressive performances.

"Islam Silmani is an important player. The figures are there but I do not want to speak about a player individually because it is a collective game,” Moreno said, as per RMC Sport.

Slimani will hope to continue his fine form in front of goal when Monaco take on Dijon on February 22.
