Author of a hat-trick who put his own in the direction of travel against Brest this Saturday evening (4-2), Wissam Ben Yedder never ceases to impress on the Rock. In great shape since the start of 2022, the Frenchman intends to finish this one in Qatar with the Blues.
Whether with Niko Kovač or Philippe Clement, Wissam Ben Yedder rarely finishes AS Monaco matches, even if the Belgian is now patient a little longer before taking him out. However, this Saturday evening, the French striker had to appreciate giving way to Myron Boadu to take full advantage of the ovation of Louis-II. Author of a hat-trick, the former Sevilla player returned a game that seemed to be off to a bad start for ASM, quickly down 2-0 and now occupying an unlikely second place before going to bed. A crazy rise in the standings which is explained by the series of nine consecutive victories of the Monegasques. During this prosperous period, WBY entered nine pawns. Look no further for the man who will allow ASM to play in C1 next season.
A triple in his image
“When I arrived, I immediately saw a player with a lot of qualities, especially technical. But Wissam has improved in the game without the ball in the last few months, he works a lot, he is even more focusedsaid Philippe Clement about him before this match against Brest. Thanks to that, we have improved as a team, we get the ball back faster, and of course he is very good at creating chances and scoring goals, although he can also move between the lines. He’s a really versatile player. » In addition to showing real qualities on the ASM bench, the Belgian is obviously also a visionary, as Ben Yedder showed off his versatility against Brest. Taking advantage of a nice gift from Belaïli, the Monegasque striker continued his flawless performance this season by converting his eighth penalty in as many attempts. Finally back in his match, the French then performs a small festival in the Breton defense before concluding with a delicious exterior from the left. After showing his technical accuracy, he lets his fox side of the surfaces express itself to take back a handover from Tchouaméni, the other big man of the Red and Whites this year.
On the way to Qatar?
If the Monegasque number eight is unlikely to still be on the Rock next season, the situation is slightly different for his eldest. “I don’t project myself into the future and I won’t do it today” , indicated the ASM striker at a press conference this week. If the former Sevilla obviously mentioned his future at the club, which still remains uncertain, but could well settle in the event of qualification for the next Champions League, there is no doubt that he already knows in which region of the world he would like to spend the winter of 2022. Regularly called up by Didier Deschamps with the Blues, but yet used sparingly, Ben Yedder still gives a little more weight to his candidacy to appear in the tricolor group which will compete in the World Cup in November. While he hadn’t played a single minute during the last Euro, being content with a place on the bench or worse, in the stands, the number ten of the Red and Whites has a good head of number two behind Karim Benzema, unplayable right now. The two men do not have profiles that far apart as they play fair and seem animated by the same collective state of mind. With 24 pawns, Ben Yedder could also take advantage of this trip to Lens next Saturday to overtake Mbappé and his 25 goals, just to afford the title of top scorer in the championship and to support his candidacy for the Coupe de France even more. world.
