Monaco secure first Ligue 1 title in 17 years

Mbappe like a young Neymar believes Benzema

Mbappe's 15th league goal of the season clinched the French title for Monaco this week and his stunning displays in the Champions League have alerted the whole of Europe to his potential. Falcao also had an impressive season, with 21 goals over 28 appearances in Ligue 1.

Moments later Mbappe threatened for the first time, popping up on the right-hand side of Monaco's penalty area only to be denied by a fine save at his near post by goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier.

While there is no doubting the talents of Mbappe, players like Anthony Martial who showed so much promise in Ligue 1, has failed to deliver consistently in the Premier League.

Semifinalist Champions League has done everything to nicely finish one of the most successful seasons in club history.

"Some experts doubted the Monaco project, but it is a source of great pride to see what Monaco have become today". "We found the right sporting and financial model for our club; it will be easier for us to keep our best players".

After their run to the Champions League quarter-finals in 2015, Monaco sold Layvin Kurzawa, Aymen Abdennour, Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, Geoffrey Kondogbia and Anthony Martial.

"Unfortunately for them but luckily for us, we're the ones leaving with the trophy". "At his age, that's something unique", Trezeguet, who left Monaco for Juventus in 2000 and developed into one of the game's most feared forwards, said.

With Monaco still searching for another goal, Leonardo Jardim introduced Valere Germain for Silva on 70 minutes. Germain was often called upon to lead more inexperienced players when Jardim rested his main players, and was made captain when Falcao was absent.

When PSG routed Monaco 4-1 in the League Cup final on April 1, PSG's president Nasser Al-Khelaifi sounded confident it would signal a change in momentum.

"It's a pleasure to play at Monaco".
