L’Équipe and Foot Mercato report that AS Monaco’s search for a Sporting Director continues to rumble on and indirect contacts have been had with fellow Ligue 1 side Amiens’ man, John Williams.
AS Monaco have formally denied having an interest in Williams, but he ticks a lot fo boxes for Oleg Petrov, who desperately needs more credible French football experience on his board. Williams is experienced in the buy cheap sell higher approach to transfers in Ligue 1, he has contacts in the Premier League.
Olivier Pickeu, recently sacked by Angers, is also attracting support from certain factions inside the Principality club. On the contrary, Olivier Létang, recently dismissed as president by Rennes, is not going to take up the role. Although there has been some contact, both parties could not agree on a way to work together going forward.
