Heavily criticized at the start of the season, Alexander Nübel received the support of his coach on the eve of AS Monaco’s entry into the competition in the Europa League, against Sturm Graz.
After a delicate start to the season, AS Monaco goalkeeper Alex Nübel was not spared by the critics. The level of play of the ASM goalkeeper weakens his starting status, but Niko Kovac wanted to consolidate it this Wednesday, on the eve of the first match of the Asemists in the Europa League against Sturm Graz (scheduled for Thursday at 9 p.m.).
Kovac flies to the rescue of Nübel
” Radek ” (Majecki) did a really good job last season, but Alex (Nübel) needs matches, rhythm, explained the Croatian technician in remarks taken up by L’Équipe. He needs to chain matches. He will be our guardian tomorrow. Radek will play the Coupe de France matches. The Europa League is a very important competition for us. We don’t say to ourselves: “we don’t care”. We want to go as far as possible. We’re not going to change the keeper.
