The best moments of the new recruit presentation

The best moments of the new recruit presentation
The last two red and white recruits were presented to the press on Friday with Oleg Petrov, the club's vice president and general manager.

Oleg Petrov:

“Introducing our two new players. Maripán showed great things, first with the Universidad Católica, where he won titles, and then with Chile and Alaves. He is powerful, athletic, and fast. I also appreciate his mental qualities. Guillermo has personality and I am sure he will bring a lot in defense.

Arthur represents the new generation. He is one of those young people who can evolve with the first team. I liked his versatility, of course as a left wing, but he can help us in different positions. I am very happy to have him with us. “

“Arthur has a lot of potential and he will bring new options for the coach.”


“I feel very good physically, so I can bring that to the team and help my teammates. I feel ready to play this weekend.

No, I do not feel any particular pressure. AS Monaco is a great opportunity for me and I came to help the team progress. I will try to demonstrate that desire match after match.

I am a central defender, and I can play on the right or left wing. I am strong physically and mentally. I like to talk with my teammates.”

“AS Monaco is a big club, with a great history, I’m going to grow up with this club.

To fight for the top spots in the league and to try to qualify for the European cups, that is the project which was presented to me.”

Arthur Zagré :

“My arrival came quick enough, I was ready for all possible outcomes, and when the Monaco option came up, the project and the prospects for the rest of my career were more interesting. I came for that: to work hard, to get better, and to do everything possible to save time.”

Rise. Risk. Repeat.
