Monaco Petrov Rybolovleva

The daughter of AS Monaco President Dmitry Rybolovlev, Ekaterina Sartori Rybolovleva, has taken over as vice-president of the club following the resignation of Oleg Petrov.

Oleg Petrov replaced Vadim Vasilyev in 2019 and had been the club’s vice-president until last summer, when the club underwent an organisational shift and Jean-Emmanuel De Witt joined the club as General Director. Since that change, Petrov has been the vice president of the administrative council at AS Monaco, as well as the club’s representative of the European Club Association (ECA).

However, Petrov, who is now closely tied with the Principality’s basketball team, AS Monaco Basketball, has stepped back from his role in the football club. His resignation has been accepted by owner and president Dmitry Rybolovlev.
