Embolo raves about AS Moncao: "They are a kind of national team"

In his Bundesliga time with Schalke 04 and Borussia Mönchengladbach, Breel Embolo never really made the big breakthrough. Although the athletic attacker was able to show his potential again and again, he also often suffered from injuries and form fluctuations. The Swiss has been active at AS Monaco since the summer - and feels really comfortable there.

A move from Gladbach to Monaco is like stepping into a completely different world. Accordingly, Breel Embolo also faces completely new challenges off the football pitch. The center forward recently modeled as part of a photo shoot for an online mail order company. "I've never done anything like this, but it was a nice change, even if some of the shoots were almost a little uncomfortable," said the player in an interview with the mail order company. As he himself admits, he "wouldn't dare to pose in the open street in every city". Of course, this is also easier when he is also professionally successful in his new home in Monte Carlo.

Things are going really well for the ex-Borussian at AS Monaco so far. The offensive player has already scored five goals and prepared four goals in all competitions. This makes him one of the top performers in the Monegasques. Accordingly, the Swiss is also very satisfied with his start, although a small drop of bitterness remains. "The big goal was to qualify for the Champions League. We just missed that," he complained about the qualifying failure in extra time against Eindhoven. "In the championship, the start went quite well and I feel very comfortable with my role in the team," he said with satisfaction.

In any case, the attacker does not regret his move. After all, he described AS Monaco as "the most ambitious and prestigious club". He is also happy about a special feature that is not found in any other top European club. "What's special is that we're a kind of national team for the people here. We represent a whole country," he explained. Embolo has adapted quite well to the even greater competition and new life in Monaco. "I celebrated my first goal for Monaco with Zverev and Hulkenberg," said the Swiss with satisfaction.
