Guest of “Rothen ignites” on RMC this Monday, Prince Albert II of Monaco is still closely following the results of the ASM. He’s noticing progress this season, after a tough start.
The new programming of Ligue 1 matches does not do the business of Prince Albert II of Monaco, a great supporter of the ASM. Guest of “Rothen ignites” on RMC this Monday, His Serene Highness (SAS) claims to have less opportunity to frequent Louis-II. “I come a little less regularly, it is pointed out to me, he smiles. I have to make commitments well enough in advance. If we change the dates (of the match) for television needs, I sometimes get worried. problems. It’s not easy to manage. “
Despite this, he assiduously follows the results of the club, in which the Principality of Monaco is a 30% shareholder. “I see the managers regularly, he explains. When I can, I go to see the training center, I saw it while it was under construction. I will be going there very soon to see the players. It’s a pretty extraordinary center, very complete with top quality equipment. I hope that will help us to have even better results. “
“We are going for the better”
The Prince sent the best in the dynamics of the ASM after a complicated start to the season (elimination from the Champions League play-offs, only one victory in the first five matches of L1). Since then, Niko Kovac’s men have taken ten points out of twelve. “We had a bit of a difficult start, like in recent seasons, he remarks. There was a lot to put in place, a balance to find. I feel that there is still better. Our last game – which I could not attend – gave a nice 3-0 victory (against Bordeaux). I do not know if it is really the revival. We are going towards better. I have every confidence in the players, the staff, the coach so that we have a very good season. We will count the points at the end as usual. “
Humble ambitions, far from the peak reached in 2004 with the final of the Champions League, lost to FC Porto (3-0), in which a certain Jérôme Rothen had participated. “All the clubs which are close to Europe have this ambition (to win it, editor’s note), he concludes. We hope to relive, in the near future, beautiful evenings of the Champions League. Why not a final? The competition is severe.”
