Although intrigued by the profile of William Vainqueur, AS Monaco had initially chosen to give up on his arrival because of a calf injury preventing the player from being available immediately.
Faced with the motivation and strong marks demonstrated by the midfielder wanting to meet this challenge, the club chose to review its position.
In this difficult sporting period, we need good players, but also real men to bounce back. The values he has displayed have definitely convinced us to have him join us to help the group fulfill the goal.
It is a great joy to know that I am going to be part of this project with a high quality workforce, I will do my best to help the club achieve its goals for this second half of the season.
Born on 19 November 1988 in Neuilly-sur-Marne, the midfielder trained at FC Nantes and made his debut in the French top flight in 2006. After six seasons with the Canaries, the former French Espoirs international joined Standard de Liège before moving to Dynamo Moscow, AS Roma and Olympique de Marseille, playing more than 30 European matches.
At Turkish club Antalyaspor since September 2017, the experienced midfielder will find, under the colors of AS Monaco, a league he knows well.
