Aleksandr Golovin joined AS Monaco in July 2018. After having a big World Cup with Russia (quarter-finals), Aleksandr signed with the club.
His dream of joining a European side was thus 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.
He has an 85% dribbling success rate since the beginning of 2019 — Aleksandr has unveiled his entire range of technical abilities at the heart of the Monegasque midfield and ranks as second best dribbler in the league over the period.
During the 2018-2019 season, he played twenty-seven times in Ligue 1. He was 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.
Proof of his adaptation, the Russian takes French lessons and shows a great desire to integrate as best as possible to his new environment.
Author of 4 goals and 3 assists this season, Aleksandr Golovin wishes to confirm his rise in the 2019-2020 season.
