Zapping Foot National Top 10: the best active Ligue 1 scorers
Jagged performances, that’s what can sum up AS Monaco’s start to the season. In the league, the club from the Principality has three wins in a row. Successes which allow him to currently occupy 5th place in the standings, despite poor performances such as against Troyes (2-4 at home) at the end of August. In the Europa League, the Monegasques also experience certain disenchantments. Recently, Philippe Clément’s players fell against Ferencvaros (0-1), a few days after winning their confrontation on the lawn of Red Star Belgrade. Therefore, a first assessment must be drawn up.
A lack of regularity in the results and in the game
AS Monaco sporting director Paul Mitchell interviewed by Nice morning, gave his impressions of his club’s start to the season. He took the opportunity to highlight the shortcomings of the club. “The lack of consistency in results and in the game is tarnishing our start to the season a bit. We are all aware that this group has the potential to do much better… I see the direction we are taking in the game. I insist, but our success will go through more consistency and that’s what I expect from the group in the coming weeks,” admitted the sporting director. In addition, he continued by evoking the difficulties of certain recruits, in particular the Japanese Takumi Minamino, who arrived from Liverpool: “Takumi Minamino is the one who has the most difficulty integrating at the moment. You have to be patient. I hope that his but against Reims will bring many others.”
The sporting director is therefore awaiting a reaction from the Monegasques who will face FC Nantes on Sunday October 2 at the Stade Louis-II (5:05 p.m.).
Asked by Nice-Matin, Paul Mitchell returned to the start of the AS Monaco season. He notably underlined the lack of regularity in the results and in the game of his team before highlighting the difficulties of adaptation of certain players who arrived this summer.
