After another shining performance in AS Monaco’s 2-0 win against SCO Angers, manager Philippe Clement tipped Youssouf Fofana (23) for a future place in the French national team set-up in the post-match press conference. 

The Belgian manager said, “I see his potential, which he is proving more and more. For me, he has the potential to be in the French national team in the future. That would be interesting, Aurélien Tchouaméni (22) and Youssouf (Fofana) together, but there is a lot of competition in this position. He now needs to stay focused and do good things on the pitch.”

“I was very clear with him during some video sessions together and he has learnt good things. He is still a young player, but he is someone who has a lot of desire to improve.”

Fofana has registered four assists this season and has been an essential pillar of Monaco’s return to form in recent weeks.
