Oleg PetrovVice President General Manager


It's time for me to leave AS Monaco. A unique club that brought me great joy, both sporting and personal.

Among the many memories that I will keep with me, will remain all these goals registered in the diagonal jersey and, of course, the Champion of France trophy won after an extraordinary season.

I would like to thank everyone in the Club, the supporters and HSH Prince Albert for the support and trust that has always been shown to me. I wish the best for the future of AS Monaco.

Daghe Munegu!
Radamel Falcao
Rise. Risk. Repeat.
