We hear very little about him this season, but last Saturday, against Saint-Étienne, his name came out of the mouth of the observers. Entered at game time in Geoffroy-Guichard, Ismail Jakobs distinguished himself twenty minutes later by delivering a mischievous assist to his friend Myron Boadu, his second this season. “Since the day we arrived in the Principality we have done everything together. I think having the same “background” brought us closer together”, admits the 22-year-old player. Later ten years at FC Colognethe left back has decided to take a step by signing for the ASM, a change that is not necessarily obvious: “It wasn’t easy at first for me because it was a big change. I had very good years with FC Cologne, but the last two seasons were difficult and I think that to turn my career around, I had to leave. For me it wasn’t leaving Cologne but taking the next step and growing as a player. This is the reason why I decided to join Monaco. »

“We have reached a real milestone”

For his first season in Ligue 1, the European Under-23 champion with Manschaft has made 24 league appearances, most starting on the substitute bench. And it says so, its integration was very fast: “Honestly, even at the beginning of the season, I always felt comfortable in the team. But inevitably now, we feel more of this group spirit over time. » An agreement that allows AS Monaco to achieve a crazy rise in the standings at the end of the championship. “It is essential that we are all united! And as we have seen, this has been reflected in the results, as we have won everything since then. I think at this point in the season we have collectively passed a real milestone from the beginning, which was more difficult.admits Ismail Jakobs. With the German at left back and Brazilian Vanderson at right, ASM can rest easy for a while.
