Monaco’s Axel Disasi: “The Premier League? Everyone knows the quality, the passion, the spectacle.”

AS Monaco’s Axel Disasi (25) was coy about his future at the Principality club, but admitted his admiration for the Premier League. 

Disasi has been linked with a move away from Monaco this season, and has previously seemed to link his future at the club to European qualification. However. the France international has said that he is entirely focused on making the Ligue 1 podium and achieving Les Monégasques’ objectives. 

I’m a very optimistic person. I want to qualify for the Champions League because we’re not there yet. I’m focused on the end of the season, and we’ll see after. I’m 100% committed to the eight matches to come. It won’t be easy. We have direct competitors that are playing well. It’s up to us to put in the effort to meet the objectives, and we’ll see what happens after that,” said Disasi. 

Disasi has been linked with many clubs around Europe. As well as Paris Saint-Germain, the former Stade de Reims centre-back has reportedly attracted much interest from the Premier League with Le Parisien reporting on Thursday that Manchester City and Chelsea were amongst the English clubs tracking Disasi. Manchester United have also been heavily linked. 

Responding to a question from Get French Football News’ Luke Entwistle, Disasi admitted his admiration for the English top flight. The Premier League? Everyone knows the quality, the passion, and the spectacle that there is in this championship. For all players that like football, this championship will speak to them. It’s true that when I say these things, there are flashes in my head of Boxing Day and things like this. But, as I said, we’re not there yet,” he said.
