(Ligue 1) Monaco Wins The 2016/17 Ligue 1 Title Earning Praises From Reigning Monaco Monarch


Monaco have had an incredible season in all competitions having just recently exited the UEFA Champions League in the Semi Finals, they now crown it up with a Ligue 1 trophy which is their first League Trophy since 2000.

Monaco finished off St Etienne 2-0 at home with goals from Kylian Mbappe and Valere Germain to push PSG out of the Ligue 1 dominance, ending a four year spell at the Ligue 1 summit.
Their performance this season earned them a praise from the reigning Monarch of Monaco, who couldn't help but drop. "After an extraordinary season, this final victory at home is the culmination of many things.


"Four and a half years ago we were in Ligue 2, now we find ourselves champion of France.
"This group is extraordinary, talented and very good-spirited, led by a great coach. It is a work of a whole team, but also of the staff, and the supporters.
"I think this team has a tremendous talent with young people who can still progress."


Coach Leonardo Jardim, why he felt Monaco's winning was more than what their Paris opponents had done in four years. 
"Winning a Championship in a team that is not a favourite is a great trophy,'' Jardim said in quotes published by L'Equipe .
"This is the most important trophy of my life as a coach. We have worked a lot for 11 months. But the best thing came up with this title. Monaco champion, this is worth four times champion Paris.
"It's my biggest achievement. Monaco winning the league is the equivalent of PSG winning it four times.
"Paris winning it has been a habit.''
