Decisive in the Coupe de France and the league
In competition with Nantes’ Ludovic Blas and Amine Gouiri from OGC Nice, captain’ Wiss thus won his first trophy of the season and succeeded Téji Savanier, who had won in December. Named last season among the five best players in the top flight, the French international (16 caps, 2 goals) has proved that he is in very good form at the start of 2022. He scored three times in the Coupe de France (once against Quevilly-Rouen and then against Lens twice) as well as in Ligue 1 (a double against Clermont and a goal in Montpellier), the captain of AS Monaco now has scored 62 goals with the Diagonale on his back.
In AS Monaco’s all-time top ten scorers in Ligue 1
These goals make him one of the top ten scorers in the history of the Club in the league, and close to the Top 10 in all competitions. Wissam Ben Yedder therefore fully deserves this title of best player in Ligue 1 in January, having also been named best Monegasque for the last three months by the supporters. Bravo Wissam!
