AS Monaco is pleased to announce the arrival of Benjamin Lecomte (28 years old) from Montpellier. The goalkeeper has signed for 5 seasons.
Born in Niort, the experienced goalkeeper boasts nearly 250 games in the French top division after seven seasons at FC Lorient (2010 to 2017) – including a loan of 6 months in Dijon (2013/14) – and two seasons under the colors of Montpellier Hérault Sport Club.
A member of the Montpellier squad for two seasons (79 matches), he was twice nominated for the UNFP trophy for best Ligue 1 goalkeeper in 2018 and 2019.
Regularly called upon in the youth selections (U18, U19, U20), Benjamin Lecomte was called into the first time by the French National Team in September 2018, before being called back for the last of the Blues’ matches in June.
We are very happy to welcome Benjamin Lecomte to AS Monaco. By the quality and the consistency of his performances, Benjamin has established himself as a major element of Montpellier's success during the last two seasons. His arrival reinforces this position of our squad.
