Paul Mitchell gave his impressions of the performances achieved since the start of the season by AS Monaco’s summer recruits.
Asked by Nice morning, the sporting director of the Principality club awarded his good and bad points to the newcomers. The Englishman notably assists Japanese winger Takumi Minamino, who arrived from Liverpool for 15 million euros.
“I must admit that not all of them give me the same degree of satisfaction. Even without playing, Thomas Didillon has had a very positive impact since his arrival. He has brought his professionalism, a real energy and I believe that is very beneficial for Alex Nübel and for young Yann Liénard who has really improved in recent weeks. Breel Embolo has been very good, very effective. He has adapted dazzlingly to the physicality and demands of French football. Mo Camara has quickly become a very important player in our team. Everyone was surprised by his leadership and his ability at 22 to adapt to our style of play and even to dictate the tempo of the match. Malang Sarr put in very solid performances, showed great qualities, in a position where it was important for Chrislain Matsima to go on loan to get tougher and get minutes of play. We are excited to see where his journey with us can take him. Takumi Minamino is the one who has the most trouble fit in for now. You have to be patient. I hope that his but against Reims will bring many others.
