Monaco were involved in the Ligue 1 title fight to the final day of the season but were ultimately made to pay for a disappointing start to the campaign. Nevertheless, Niko Kovac built perhaps the most exciting side to watch in Ligue 1 and the foundations of that team remain as the Stade Louis II side welcome back Champions League football this season. Of their regular starters, the only player to leave entirely is Fode Ballo-Toure, who has joined Milan. The left-back had the best season of his career but is unlikely to be a player Monaco sorely miss given that they have Caio Henrique to step into the role. Ballo-Toure’s athleticism, though, was impressive. Otherwise, they have cut down their squad size, with no key players departing with the potential exception of Stevan Jovetic, who was an excellent option from the bench. New faces, too, are few and far between. While an army of loan players has returned, the only fresh faces are Ismail Jacobs to play on the left and Alexander Nubel, who has arrived on a two-year loan deal in goal and should prove to be a significant upgrade. Monaco played with two centre-backs last season and a versatile full-back who was able to tuck in and become a third member of a back three. Meanwhile, they had two defensive midfielders in the form of Aurelien Tchouameni and Youssfou Fofana. Both have developed impressively into strong Ligue 1 players. Going forward, meanwhile, they were super offensive, often fielding two wingers and two offensive midfielders, spearheaded by Wissam Ben Yedder and Kevin Volland, who formed an outstanding partnership last season. Monaco have a good balance of the young and experienced throughout their side, with players like Cesc Fabregas having a role to play even if they are not used regularly. There is good balance to this season and, while the squad numbers are unmanageable, that will surely change as players get sent out on loan.

Target


Expecting another title challenge is too much – although they will certainly harbour such hopes – but Monaco will be aiming for the Champions League again.

Season Review
2020/2021

№3: Monaco

Monaco will be back in the Champions League next season after producing an excellent campaign that saw them in title contention down to the final day of the campaign. Indeed, from December onwards, they were the best team in the league, winning with impressive regularity as they pushed Lille and PSG all the way. There were a few week of transition at the beginning of the season as they settled under Niko Kovac and tried to understand what the coach wanted them to do. Indeed, they played in the most unique style of any of France’s top flight clubs, effectively playing in a 3-2-4-1 formation that was very attack minded. Kevin Volland might have been a slow starter but once he was moved into a central role was an ace alongside the typically prolific Wissam Ben Yedder, while Monaco discovered something of a hidden gem in the form of Sofiane Diop, who enjoyed a breakout season in part because Aleksandr Golovin spent a long period out injured. When fit, the Russian was outstanding and thrived with the freedom that Kovac’s system afforded him. This was underpinned by the strong performances of defensive midfielder Youssouf Fofana and Aurelien Tchouameni, the latter of whom had barely been used by the previous management but developed into a key player. Monaco’s three centre-backs were all strong performers, with Djibril Sidibe somewhat surprisingly breaking into this corps after being on the periphery of Kovac’s thinking for much of the season. Guillermo Maripan proved something of a surprise ace as his aerial ability from set pieces added another string to Monaco’s countless attacking options, while both Axel Disasi and Benoit Badiashile enhanced their reputations. Goalkeeper was the only position where there was some doubts. Benjamin Lecomte did not have a particularly great season. This was an exciting campaign from Monaco, who are ahead of schedule in their rebuild. With a smart sporting director in Paul Mitchell, the summer promises to be an interesting one.
