Mohamed Camara: "I was convinced by the coach's project and the club"
Newly arrived from Red Bull Salzburg, Mohamed Camara is now an AS Monaco player! During his presentation press conference, the Malian international spoke about his future goals. Extracts.

Mohamed Camara is Monegasque! Arriving this week from the Austrian club Red Bull Salzburg, our new midfielder was officially presented this afternoon during his first press conference in Rouge et Blanc, accompanied by the Club’s Sporting Director, Paul Mitchell.

The leadership he showed in a young Salzburg team, and especially in the Champions League was very impressive. And when he is in the national team with Mali, it's the same thing! He is a born leader and he is a born competitor. So it's a perfect marriage between him and AS Monaco!

An introduction from Paul Mitchell:

“I am very happy to welcome a player of this quality to AS Monaco. Mohamed is only 22 years old but already has real natural leadership. You have to be patient to find the right player, and with him we found him. We’re pinning a lot of our hopes on him because we’re aware of his high quality. It’s something we wanted in midfield. Again, the leadership he showed in a young Salzburg team, and especially in the Champions League was very impressive. And when he is in the national team with Mali, it’s the same thing! He is a born leader and he is a born competitor. So it’s a perfect marriage between him and AS Monaco!”

Coming to AS Monaco

I spoke with Philippe Clément on the phone several times, and he explained to me the Club’s project and what I could bring to the team. This is the perfect place for me. I will be able to continue my progress in a favorable environment. The infrastructure is magnificent. Everything is professional and all the conditions are in place to succeed! Anyway, you can’t say no to AS Monaco. It is the biggest club in France.

What he hopes to bring to the club

First, I wanted to say that there is nothing above the institution. As a result, I will try to give the best of myself in each training session but also in matches. As I said before, the conditions are optimal here for me to progress and perform. The team this season is very competitive and the competition will lift us all up. But, I don’t really like to talk about myself. I prefer to let what I do on the pitch speak for me, but above all, it’s up to the coach to judge me and tell me if I’m good enough or not! But I want to help the club as much as possible.

Now it will be up to us to give 100% not only in Ligue 1 but also in the Europa League to go as far as possible in the competition.

Advice from Hamari Traoré

Hamari Traoré (the captain of Stade Rennais and also a Malian international, editor’s note) is like a big brother to me. When I called him to find out about Ligue 1, he told me that it was a very physical league but also and above all very technical. Honestly, he advised me to go for it, telling me that I had the necessary qualities to get by in Ligue 1. I was also able to talk to Takumi Minamino, whom I had the chance to meet in Salzburg he a few years ago. All this convinced me to join AS Monaco.

He's a born leader and competitor -- it's the perfect marriage between him and AS Monaco!

His goals for the season

Physically I am already ready if the coach needs me this weekend against Lens. I can’t wait to play my first minutes in Ligue 1 with Monaco and see the Stade Louis-II! In terms of our ambitions, I think we have a high quality squad. Now it will be up to us to give 100% not only in Ligue 1 but also in the Europa League to go as far as possible in the competition.
