« If every time he enters, he scores one or two goals, that’s fine with me »: Ben Yedder, Europe’s No.1 « supersub »


Wissam Ben Yedder is not a replacement like any other. When the French international entered 20 minutes from time, he recovered the armband from Axel Disasi’s arm, who nevertheless remained on the pitch. Even when he sits on the bench, he is the captain of AS Monaco. So much for the symbol. But the rest is much more concrete: the former Toulousain got his team out of a bad step, equalizing against LOSC in the 83rd minute, in this opening match of the 14th day of Ligue 1 (2-2).

A redundant scenario in 2021. Friday, Ben Yedder scored his eighth goal of the year after starting an L1 meeting on the bench. In the « supersub » genre, he is untouchable. Among the five ‘big leagues’, he is the only one to have exceeded the bar of five achievements registered in this register. A chasm. But what matters for the club of the Rock, it is not such a statistic. It is to make the most of the talent of his flagship striker.

The opportunity to give play time to Boadu

Asked about Prime Video, Niko Kovac explained his choice to deprive himself of Ben Yedder at kick-off. Even if he only played two minutes (Saturday against Kazakhstan), the international break – including a trip to Finland – motivated the decision of the Monegasque coach, who took the opportunity to « reward » a young player: « He (Ben Yedder) was not with the team for ten days. Myron (Boadu, 20 years old, Editor’s note) worked a lot. We thought he would have space behind José Fonte’s back. « 

But, while Monaco was ten for five minutes and the exclusion of Strahinja Pavlovic, it is therefore the boss who saved the furniture to Louis-II, slamming his seventh goal of the 2021-22 financial year in Ligue 1. What make Kovac want to repeat the experience, like last season? « If every time he walks in he scores a goal or two, that’s fine with me« , concluded the ex-Bayern player with a smile.
