It’s done, AS Monaco have their new coach…
Yes, we are very happy to announce the appointment of our new coach Leonardo Jardim. He has signed on as head coach of AS Monaco for at least the next two seasons. We are convinced he will live up to our expectations.
What are those expectations?
The sporting objective is to finish in the top two of the league. For the Champions League, we will wait for the draw, but we will be looking to do well and live up to the club’s proud history in European competitions. But above all, I want us to provide more joy and entertainment to our supporters and football lovers everywhere.
"He is one of a new generation of football coaches..."
Why did you choose Leonardo Jardim?
He is a coach who has had excellent results in every club he has worked with. He is highly motivated and is one of a new generation of coaches who will bring a new dynamic to us. He is ambitious, like us. He fits perfectly the profile that we established for the job. We were very quickly convinced that he was the right man for the job, to take the project into the future. We are delighted to be working with him.
What will his playing squad be?
We already have a quality squad with excellent players in every position. We are working towards a few adjustments during the mercato to reinforce the squad, but there won’t be big changes. It won’t mean the team will be any less competitive because the majority of the players already know each other well. Leonardo is across all our dossiers. He is impatient to get to work.
