AS Monaco Vice-President Vadim Vasilyev was elected “NuCalm European Football CEO of the Year” on Thursday night in London.

The prestigious award honours the best top official of Europe’s football clubs. Vasilyev had some tough competition: Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (Bayern Munich), Edwin van der Sar (Ajax), Umberto Gandini (AS Rome) and Florentino Perez (Real Madrid).

On Saturday, Vasilyev’s win was echoed by the AS Monaco team, which defeated visitors Guingamp 6-0 at home. Two goals came from Adama Traoré and two from Guido Carillo, with single goals from Keita Baldé and Fabinho.

Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim was calm about the result, saying that the team doesn’t always need Falcao to win a game. “Of course, I would like it if [Falcao]were always there. But Guido scored twice and won a penalty,” he said.

Meanwhile Guingamp’s coach was less than sanguine about the rout: “We are ashamed to lose 6-0. It’s one set to love… We thought Monaco might have struggled physically after their Champions League match on Wednesday and we should have gone in with greater pace and more desire in the challenges. But the opposite happened. We can’t incriminate one or two players, it is everyone, including me. But we won’t play Monaco every weekend.”
