Behind the scenes and a big celebration... See how our youngsters won the 2023 Coupe Gambardella!
They made their place in the history of the Club by winning a fifth Coupe Gambardella for AS Monaco. Go behind the scenes of the triumph of our U-18s, led by Frédéric Barilaro and Manu Dos Santos in the final of the 2023 edition.

The Academy once again at the top of French football! After an exceptional run which saw our Rouge et Blanc win six times away from home (Vénissieux, Aubagne, Nancy, Rouen, Nantes, Pau) before heading to the Stade de France, the AS Monaco U-18s lifted the prestigious Coupe Gambardella for the fifth time in the Club’s history.

A winning duo at the head of the team

In beating Clermont (4-2), the teammates of Joan Tincres, scorer and MVP for La Diagonale in April, have thus written their own story. It was the ultimate reward for this group led by the duo of Frédéric Barilaro – Manu Dos Santos, coaches of the Monegasque U19s and U17s, who rose to every challenge. But it’s also, above all, the triumph of a “family”, which has chased its dreams, as one of its leaders, Mayssam Benama, explained very well, with the frankness that characterizes him.

I told them that I was proud of them and of the run we'd had because we played all our games away from home. It's a sign. Now I'm happy for the Club and I wish them good luck for the future.
