Wilfried Singo, the Ivorian international, has shed light on his decision to sign for AS Monaco despite attracting interest from several top Italian clubs last summer. The 23-year-old right-back, who garnered attention from AC Milan, Inter, Atalanta, and Juventus, opted for a move to Monaco for a transfer fee of 10 million euros, citing ambitions of playing in the UEFA Champions League as a key factor.

In an exclusive interview with Sky Italia, Singo emphasized his desire to compete at the highest level of European football, a prospect he believes Monaco can offer:

“I chose Monaco to play in the Champions League; the coach brought me here to help the team achieve this goal.

While Italian teams also expressed interest, I made the decision to join Monte-Carlo, and I am delighted with my choice.”

Singo’s decision has proven fruitful, with the right-back enjoying a stellar season with Monaco, culminating in success with the Ivory Coast national team in the recent Africa Cup of Nations.

His seamless transition to the Ligue 1 outfit underscores the wisdom behind his choice.

Reflecting on his move from Torino to Monaco, Singo views it as a significant step forward in his career trajectory.

He perceives the transfer as an opportunity for personal growth and development, recognizing the difference in expectations and pressure levels between the two clubs:

“Transitioning from Toro to Monaco represents progress in my career. I am now part of a prestigious club, and I must rise to the occasion to contribute to the team’s success.

While Ligue 1 and Serie A present distinct challenges, I am committed to adapting my game and making a positive impact.”

Singo’s insights offer a glimpse into the strategic considerations that underpinned his move to AS Monaco, highlighting his ambition to compete at the highest echelons of European football and his determination to thrive in his new environment.

As he continues to excel on the pitch, Singo’s decision stands as a testament to his foresight and ambition in pursuit of sporting success.
