“I am very happy to join AS Monaco, a historic club in the French championship with an important European dimension. It is also a club in which many Brazilians have brilliantly. I am very happy to have this opportunity to join a very beautiful project. I thank the club for the confidence they place in me and the Gremio for having accompanied me so far. I am determined to work to integrate myself as quickly as possible and bring my qualities to the group ”, thus welcomed the new Monegasque side in a press release released this Saturday on the Asemists website. New ASM recruit, the Brazilian Vanderson de Oliveira Campos, said Vanderson, is therefore preparing to embark on a new challenge in his young career.
In exchange for compensation of eleven million euros, the side, just aged 20, has therefore signed up with the current sixth in Ligue 1 who is experiencing the last hectic hours with the official departure of his trainer Niko Kovac and the very likely arrival of Philippe Clément, now at the head of Club Brugge. Trained at Gremio Porto Alegre, the international Auriverde U20 has signed up for five seasons with the Principality club. Very efficient with his training club, Vanderson is already arriving with a certain standing and showing great promise.
Sizeable competition for Djibril Sidibé and Ruben Aguilar!
Launched among professionals in December 2020, the 1m74 right side quickly emerged as an indisputable holder of the Brazilian club. Illustration of his leading role, Vanderson took part in 52 meetings with the Porto Alegre team for a record of four goals and three assists in all competitions in 2021. With a very good first season at the highest level, Vanderson is “A very dynamic and forward-looking defender, generous in his efforts, capable of bringing his technical qualities to the opposing half of the field and of being decisive”, in particular specified the Monegasque sports director Paul Mitchell on the website of the club.
With this in mind, the first winter recruit of ASM is also part of this logic of preparing for the future. But who knows, if the native of Rondonópolis manages to acclimatize quickly to his new championship, he could quickly become a strong competitor for Djibril Sidibé and Ruben Aguilar, the two other French internationals who play in his post. Note also that for the first city, free from any contract next June, negotiations about its future remain, for the time being, at a standstill. A contractual situation which could then benefit the Brazilian side. Not qualified for the trip from Monaco to Rouen, this Sunday, to face Quevilly-Rouen in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France, Vanderson remains, in any event, a first reinforcement of weight for the Asemists.
