Clement starts with Monaco at breakneck speed: “I’ve never experienced this, not as a player and not as a coach”

This weekend they start again in the Ligue 1. Philippe Clement is already presented with a very difficult start with Monaco.

Monaco starts this weekend against Strasbourg, but then matches against PSV, Rennes, Lens and PSG will follow. And that’s not all. “I have never experienced this myself, not as a player and not as a coach. I think it is unique,” he says at Sporza. “We complete 14 matches in 42 days. Half of them are league matches and we play 6 times against a club that finished in the top 8 last season.”

“It’s a bit like the play-offs in Belgium, albeit at the beginning of the season. But we’re looking forward to it, we see it as a challenge.”

Monaco will try to break PSG’s hegemony, which will be extremely difficult. The Parisians are keeping quiet on the transfer market for the time being. “I think they have come to that conclusion after the past few years. The elimination by Real has hit hard. The new coach, Galtier, is pushing hard on discipline and also opts for a new system, with 5 players in the back. I am curious. They have a lot of quality. If you can make those players better collectively, you have one of the better teams in the world.”
