AS Monaco can boast of presenting the youngest team of the five major European championships. A youth bonus rewarded with good results and recognition of the work done. Aurélien Tchouameni symbolizes this golden youth.
With three consecutive victories in Ligue 1 before the international break, Monaco is the fittest team in the championship. The Rocher club made a masterful link from the limit of the red zone to 6th rank! This regain of form, the club of the principality owes it in large part to its young guard. According to a study by the Football Observatory (CIES), ASM presents the youngest starting XI of the five major European leagues. Among the 23 elements used by Nico Kovac, no less than 16 have not passed the 25-year mark.
A pride put forward by the club. Among the youngest players in the professional squad, three come from Monegasque training: Eliot Matazo (19 years old) Chrislain Matsima (19 years old) and Benoît Badiashile (20 years old). Three elements used regularly by Nico Kovac in his rotation. But the insolent success of this youth is symbolized by Aurélien Tchouameni. The 21-year-old midfielder’s rise to power is impressive. International since September and again summoned to Didier Deschamps’ list of Blues to compete in the Nations League, the ex-Bordelais released his counter but during the 9th day of Ligue 1 against his training club.
Eleven of the thirteen internationals are not over 22 years old
The other future great is called Sofiane Diop. Already a three-way scorer resumes this season in the league, the international hope continues to pile up great benefits. His coach praised him in particular at a press conference after the success acquired on the lawn of Clermont during the 8th day (1-3). If these two players have reached an excellent level, there is no doubt that they will not be the only ones to create the screen of this season. Among the thirteen internationals of the club summoned during this window of international meetings, eleven of them have not exceeded 22 years.
