He was AS Monaco’s first MVP this season against Eindhoven, and now he is also the MVP of the first month of the season. Axel Disasi, scorer in particular of the equalizer against PSV during the first leg of the third preliminary round of the Champions League (1-1), has indeed been elected player of the month for August by the Monegasque supporters on the AS Monaco App, with almost 50% of the votes.
Mais oui Axel ! 💪

An attacking menace
It must also be said that the Rouge et Blanc vice-captain had an excellent month of August during which Philippe Clement’s men played seven games.
In addition to his goal against Eindhoven, he has showed himself as a real attacking threat especially on set pieces, including his two headed assists for Krépin Diatta in Strasbourg then for Youssouf Fofana against Troyes — his first two assists in the colors of AS Monaco since his arrival.
Krépin Diatta vous souhaite une bonne semaine. Sous tous les angles 💥

A defensive colossus
Named MVP of the first leg against Eindhoven and a part of the Ligue 1 Team of the week for the fourth matchday, Axel Disasi has also been impressive defensively, such as his performance at the Parc des Princes. In this match, he managed to help muzzle the attacking trio of Messi, Neymar and Mbappé!
It is therefore logical that you, the supporters of the Principality club have elected him MVP of the month of August on the AS Monaco App. Note that this is the first time that the central defender has received this distinction. Bravo Axel!
