Present at a press conference this Friday, the coach of AS Monaco, Philippe Clement, confirmed an important return in attack before the shock against Troyes.
AS Monaco: A welcome attacking reinforcement before Troyes
AS Monaco wants to continue on its way forward. On a series of two consecutive victories against Paris Saint-Germain and FC Metz, the club from the principality occupies sixth place in Ligue 1 and wants to get a little closer to the top of the table. The Monegasques want to win a European place next season. To do this, AS Monaco will have to chain positive results. And that goes through a victory on Sunday against Troyes. The Monegasques will have to win at home against the promoted in order to get closer to a qualifying place for Europe.
For this match against Troyes, the coach Philippe Clement can count on a significant return in attack. As anticipated for a few days, Kevin Volland resumed collective training and is operational for the match against ESTAC Troyes. “He feels much better, but he has lost time physically, he lacks physical condition. He is ready for this weekend, but not to play 90 minutes.a confirmed Monegasque coach, who could bring him in during the game.
Philippe Clément announces weight packages
However, AS Monaco is still shaken by major absences. Philippe Clément announced the unavailability of Maripan. The latter felt discomfort in the knee and will be forfeited. “Maripan is not going to be available. He still had a little pain in his knee. Because of that, he received an infiltration to recover faster. He will not be available against Troyes. I hope he will be for the next matches.”, said the Monegasque coach. The midfield Cesc Fabregas is still in the recovery phase. He will therefore be absent for this match. Same story for Krépin Diatta. As for the other players, “they trained normally”, assured the Monegasque coach.
