He remained on top form after a superb January! Already named Monegasque of the month on the AS Monaco App while being elected Ligue 1 Player of the Month by the UNFP, Wissam Ben Yedder didn’t let up in February! He scored four goals and added three assists in seven games — it was an incredible offensive display that started on the first day with a strike from the left in the win over Auxerre (3-2).
Une finition parfaite pour un 90e but en Rouge & Blanc 🥉

Third-top scorer in AS Monaco history
It was a goal that was far from being anecdotal since Captain’ Wiss became, on February 1, 2023, the third-top scorer in the Club’s history with 90 goals in La Diagonale.
Then 10 days later, during the match against Paris Saint-Germain, he turned in a real masterclass with two goals and an assist for Aleksandr Golovin. He was first on the lookout after good pressing from Krépin Diatta to recover the ball and send a shot across goal from the right into the opposite corner, before being the author of a superb finish. He did it all in 45 minutes to seal a victory for the Rouge et Blanc (3-1)!

The key man in the return to the podium
Again in the league, Wissam Ben Yedder was invovled in the win in Brest (2-1) with a cutback setting up the Tsar at the end of the first half. These performances have been key in helping the club keep up their good form as they’re now third and on the podium.

And in Europe, if AS Monaco has unfortunately been eliminated by Leverkusen on penalties, he has little to regret. In the first leg, he set up the Senegalese winger and in the return leg, it was he who scored the goal to make it 1-1 with a perfectly converted penalty.
A third win this season
Decisive every 50 minutes this month, the captain is therefore logically named MVP of February on the AS Monaco App, winning this third trophy after October and January. With 51% of the vote, he finished ahead of Aleksandr Golovin, who scored two goals and added an assist, and who had 34% of the vote. Bravo Wissam! 👏
