Speaking after AS Monaco’s 4-0 defeat at home to Montpellier, manager Philippe Clement said that if the team didn’t improve their collective performances, it may be difficult for some players “to make good transfers” come the summer.
Montpellier ran riot at the Stade Louis II. The visitor’s intensity and efficiency were unmatched by their opponents of the day, which leaves Les Monégasques cut adrift in the race for the Ligue 1 podium.
Many of the players that featured in the match, notably Axel Disasi and Youssouf Fofana, have been linked with big-money moves away from the Principality club. Speaking at a press conference, attended by Get French Football News, Clement said that repeating such performances could harm their chances of making a move this summer.
“We need to look at ourselves in the mirror after this match. We need to return to the basics: refind ur structure, our aggression and our work off the ball. It’s up to us to bounce back and prove that we deserve ]to play European football next season],” began Clement.
He continued, “It is also important for the players. If we continue to play like this, it will also be difficult for them to make good transfers, which are probably now in their heads. But today, they are here and have a contract. No one, neither a player nor staff member can leave the stadium with a good feeling.”
