AS Monaco invited its fans to its training session at Stade Louis II on Wednesday, August 29. The reason for the venue is that work is being undertaken at the La Turbie training ground and supporters have not been able to attend the training sessions so far this season.
ASM are due to meet Olympique Marseiile at home on Sunday evening for the fourth match of the Ligue 1 season.
The club said it would be “an exceptional and unique moment” for the fans and arranged that players would be available for autographs and selfies after the session. Premium subscribers to the club were seated in the best front-row seats.
The club has said that more opportunities for fans and players to meet will be provided during the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, Benjamin Henrichs has been signed from Bayer Leverkusen on a five-year contract in the region of 25 million euros.
The 21 year-old right-back and German international said on the club’s website: “I am very proud to be involved with Monaco, a European top club for many years. I will do everything to adapt quickly and help the team win many victories. I cannot wait to work with the staff and my new teammates.”
