FC Bayern, News: Monaco coach talks about Nübel
Philippe Clement, coach of AS Monaco, commented calmly on the possible departures of Alexander Nübel and central defender Benoît Badiashile. “They are here in training and have their focus here. They do everything they have to do for the team,” the 48-year-old told the L’Equipe.
“It depends on the situations whether they are interesting for the club or not. The most important thing for me is that the players have their heads here and that’s the case,” continued the Monaco boss.
Clement is not surprised that other clubs are interested in his players: “I’ve been in Monaco for eleven months now and in the past six months there has been a lot of interest in many players. It’s nothing new because it’s a project with many young players, so there is also interest in the transfer market. As a coach, you’re always happy when the transfer market ends. We’ll see.”
Nübel is primarily associated with FC Bayern. The keeper has been loaned to AS Monaco by the German record champions until June 2023, but is due to return to the Isar due to the injury to regular goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Meanwhile, Chelsea are said to be interested in Badiashile.
