Free of any contract since his departure from Leicester last February, Claude Puel has still not found a bench. The French technician was announced near the Sporting CP but nothing has succeeded. While AS Monaco are currently in sporting difficulty (0 win, 3 draws and 3 defeats in 6 games), Leonardo Jardim appears weakened. This is even more the case after the meeting in Reims (0-0) where we saw the Asemists without ideas.
The former recovering midfielder was therefore announced on the side of AS Monaco to replace Leonardo Jardim, who, decidedly, can not do it on the Rock. And obviously, the leaders of the ASM think that it is necessary to recover old to revive the machine, a way of doing that had not been a great success, last year, with the signing at the end of the year 2018 of Thierry Henry. In any case, Puel, Monegasque between 1979 and 1996 and between 1999 and 2001, do not expect to return immediately.
" Yes, I would like to come back to Monaco "
Present on the set of PL Zone sure RMC Sport, he explained that he did not intend to return to the Rock club he coached between 1999 and 2001: "I do not want to talk about Monaco. It's a team that started their championship, there is a coach in place. Out of respect for the club and the coach, I do not want to discuss any eventualities. This is not news », began by explaining the former coach of OGC Nice and Olympique Lyonnais.
"I have almost come back twice already. It was close, I did not join the club because I felt like … making the loop. To have started and to finish in some way. I refused. But one day, yes I would like to come back to Monaco because it's my training club, my heart club »he continued. An answer that is not really one that leaves room for many possibilities. And that, Jardim knows it.
