Monaco’s football team has congratulated players who took part in the World Cup who at one time played for the Principality side.
“AS Monaco would like to congratulate the Blues, especially its 2017 French Champions Djibril Sidibe, Thomas Lemar, Benjamin Mendy and Kylian Mbappe, now World Cup champions,” the club said on its website.
AS Monaco is very proud to count today, with Kylian Mbappé, a new world champion trained in its academy. Like his proud elders, his name will forever be associated with AS Monaco, the club said.
“The club also salutes the success of Didier Deschamps, who began his coaching career with AS Monaco. AS Monaco highlights the performance of Croatian goalkeeper Danijel Subasic, a finalist, who was outstanding throughout the competition.
“The club also congratulates its captain Falcao, Joao Moutinho, Keita Baldé, Kamil Glik and all AS Monaco players who competed.”
Dmitry Rybolovlev, President of AS Monaco, said: “Congratulations to all those outstanding champions who make the club proud. I have a special thought for Djibril Sidibé, Kylian Mbappé, Benjamin Mendy and Thomas Lemar. Two years after helping AS Monaco win an eighth Ligue 1 title, here they are as world champions. This ultimate title rewards their talent, a flawless state of mind and of course all the work they’ve done for years, including those in the red and white jersey.”

Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
