Montpellier fell out of the top 10 in Ligue 1 for the first time in five seasons as they finished 13th last term, which was their first under the guidance of head coach Olivier Dall’Oglio. They boasted a competitive squad and the outcome was a disappointing one, with the club having previously enjoyed several years of stability. Financial issues have forced a cutback of spending, and that is set to be evident in terms of who they are able to sign before the end of August. Certainly, the additions they have made this summer are not exactly enthralling. Wahbi Khazri, Arnaud Nordin and Falaye Sacko were all members of the Saint-Etienne squad that was surprisingly relegated last season – albeit three of the better performing players. Otherwise, full-backs Theo Sainte-Luce and Faitout Maouassa are the only players to join up. Conversely, there are numerous players who depart, including starting full-backs Junior Sambia and Mihailo Ristic, who is comfortably replaced by Arnaud Souquet at least. Experienced attacking midfielder Remy Cabella has also gone but he did not make an impression on his return to the club, while Florent Mollet was clearly uncomfortable being asked to play out on the right wing, and his departure is logical. It's not all bad news for Montpellier, though. They have retained the services of key playmaker Teji Savanier, who has signed a new contract. He was hampered by injury last season and he will be a pivotal player this time around if he can stay fit. Indeed, Montpellier look well stocked offensively. In a more defensive sense, Jordan Ferri is their lynchpin in the centre of the field and will be paired by the improving Joris Chotard. At the back, Mamadou Sakho’s level dictates how well Montpellier defend. He can either elevate those around him or bring them down. There is a little lack of depth for now at centre-back. In goal, meanwhile, Jonas Omlin is a steady goalkeeper.

Target


Montpellier will be looking to push back into the top 10.

2020/2021

№8: Montpellier HSC

Montpellier were not quite able to force European football, despite finishing eighth in Ligue 1 and going close to beating Paris Saint-Germain in the Coupe de France semi-final, losing out only on penalties. It was indeed a case of so close but so far for Michel Der Zakarian’s side, who never seemed quite able to get up a head of steam required to make a good push to go further. Offensively, they were exceptional, with the quartet of Florian Mollet, Teji Savanier, Gaetan Laborde and Andy Delort all strong performers. Indeed, there is arguably no better understanding between forwards in the whole of Ligue 1 like Laborde and Delort, who scored 37 goals between them in all competitions and have an elite level of complicity. Stephy Mavididi’s performances should also not go unnoticed as his level helped force a change in formation away from Der Zakarian’s long-time favoured three at the back into a 4-3-3. He finished the season on nine goals. The defensive side of Montpellier’s game was not nearly so good. Daniel Congre, Pedro Mendes and Hilton all showed some signs of their age, while Arnaud Souquet, who had been such a potent weapon as a right wing-back, was not nearly so effective due to the switch to a flat back four. His place was taken by Junior Sambia. In goal, meanwhile, Jonas Omlin had a decent debut season but will be pushed next season by France Under-21 goalkeeper Dimitry Bertaud, who took over for the last games of the campaign due to injury and impressed. It threatens to be all change in the summer at Montpellier, though. Der Zakarian will depart the club, leaving a coaching void that must be filled. The work he conducted was strong, and they will have a hard time finding better.
