Losing Many Top Players, Monaco Optimistic Still Can Repeat Success Last Season
The success of AS Monaco last season won the Ligue 1 to make many of its flagship players so coveted European elite club. A number of names that eventually left Monaco were Kylian Mbappe, Bernardo Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Benjamin Mendy.
The four top players Monaco left are key players who delivered success last season. Not only in domestic competition, all four also contributed to bring Monaco able to go far to the Champions League semifinals.
Monaco relies on collective games
Despite being left behind by many key players, Monaco successfully defended Radamel Falcao, Fabinho, Joao Moutinho and Thomas Lemar. His fourth presence gives fresh air for the club to re-repeat this season’s achievements. This was conveyed by Monaco attacking midfielder, Rony Lopes.
“All eyes are on us. Some top players go indeed, although some new players also join, “said Lopes, as quoted by Omnisport.
“Apart from that, most importantly there remains structure, staff, culture, still the same as last season. Everyone who loves football certainly enjoys the way Monaco plays. We play very offensively, but if you look carefully, we are also adept at surviving. Our main strength is playing as a team and our coaches are very important in determining the game pattern, “continued the player loaned to Lille last season.
“For those who doubt we can repeat the achievement last season, we can only do one thing that is silencing them with victory,” he said confidently. (Source: Get French Football News)
