Leonardo Jardim and his talented group of players achieved something remarkable in 2016-17 as they bested Unai Emery’s PSG side for the league title.
That squad couldn’t stay intact for long as major European clubs bought most of the key players in the following summer. It left Jardim with a huge restructuring job ahead of the 17-18 season, but Monaco made a stunning €289 million profit in the transfer window.
Monaco couldn’t compete with Neymar-led PSG in the following season, but they maintained their standards in the league and finished the season in the runners-up spot. Jardim managed to get the best out of his newly-assembled side last season as Monaco finished ahead of the likes of Lyon and Marseille.
