No mea culpa in sight

How can ASM manage the next summer transfer window with a sports director present, but on the way out? For Mitchell, the question does not arise. If the players decide to come and play in the Principality, it is not for its beautiful eyes. “ I do not believe that players sign in Monaco for Paul Mitchell. The club has a history and a strategy. It is for the latter that players want to join him. They don’t come for the coaches either.”he said, before adding that Philippe Clement, whom he chose, was not going to find himself in a weak position either.

Finally, when discussing his record, Mitchell did not really make a mea culpa. Since arriving in 2020, Monaco has never managed to qualify for the Champions League and has had a string of disappointments in the Europa League, including the last against Bayer Leverkusen. But for the English, ASM has been “unlucky” against the Germans and victim of ” the lottery “ in shots on goal. And as for the failure in the Champions League, the Englishman has found the parade again. “Here too, we must have a balanced approach, it’s not like my predecessors who almost received blank checks from the owner. » While waiting to see how his succession will be managed, Monaco remains still and always well placed to play the next edition of the cup with big ears.
