Bennasser stepping up at Monaco

Defenders aren't solely responsible for keeping the screws tight at the back, and Nancy know that better than anyone.

Their tight defence last term was assisted by the midfield performing admirably and shielding the back four with command. Ait Bennasser’s performances contributed significantly to that. 

The 20-year-old Moroccan played 33 games in Nancy’s quest for promotion. While he can be mainly put down as a defensive midfielder, he has played in a number of positions early on in his career. 

Technically excellent, he is best utilised in the centre of the park, shielding the defence, distributing the ball forward and passing accurately to help manoeuvre attacks. He is perfect for both the 4-3-3 and the 4-2-3-1 systems where another midfielder supports him.

His eye-catching displays have managed to interest Atletico Madrid, Arsenal and Fiorentina but it was Monaco who acquired his services last month. They have loaned him back to Nancy for the short term, a good move for the player who will continue to play regularly.

Monaco have a very talented player on their books, and if he can continue to build on the last couple of seasons, he has a massive future ahead of him.
