Our Assistant Head Coach firmly believes Claudio Ranieri’s squad will push all the way for the title in Ligue 1 next season.

Promoted after two campaigns in Ligue 2, Monaco have spent big this summer with the arrival of the likes of Rademel Falcao, James Rodriguez, Ricardo Carvalho, Eric Abidal, Joao Moutinho and Jeremy Toulalan.

“It’s great to play Monaco, it will be a fantastic game to watch,” said Steffen.

“They won the Ligue 2 championship and I think they will push again to win Ligue 1 in France, challenging Paris St Germain.

“We’re still in pre-season and it’s not only about results, but the last game against South China was really positive and not just the result, but the performance as well. That’s why we’re positive to have a good performance in Monaco.”
