Aleksandr Golovin joined AS Monaco in July 2018. After having a big World Cup with Russia (quarter-finals), Aleksandr made a commitment with the Principality’s club.
His dream of joining Europe was then granted and the Russian has now perfectly adapted to the French championship. The first Russian in Ligue 1 since 2005, the midfielder plays with confidence and succeeds in what he undertakes.
So in March, he has an 85% dribbling success rate since the beginning of 2019. Aleksandr has unveiled his entire technical palette in the heart of the Monegasque midfield and ranks as second best dribbler of the championship over the period.
During the 2018-2019 season, he was twenty-seven times in Ligue 1. He is one of the most used players by Leonardo Jardim. Two days before the reception of Bordeaux (J28), Aleksandr said in a press conference that he had the hope of being at AS Monaco for a long time.
New proof of his adaptation, the Russian takes French lessons and shows a great desire to integrate as best as possible to his new environment.
