The roller coaster for Djibril Sidibé. Between a truncated preparation and the Covid-19, some physical glitches too, the AS Monaco right-back has had a choppy start to the season. In fact, he has hardly shone since his world coronation with the Blues in 2018, with a complicated 2018-19 year at ASM and a relatively lackluster loan at Everton the following year. 28 games in total with the Toffees, and… a return to the senders on the Rock side. Carlo Ancelotti did not see fit to exercise the € 14m call option. In the meantime, former Montpellier player Ruben Aguilar was making his way, even joining the French team (1 sel.). Something to put doubt in anyone's head ... Not him. “In a career you can have ups and downs, he said at the end of January. When we experienced the World Cup, we have very high standards around us. It's up to me to question myself. I never doubted, the real Djibril has to be 100% physically and mentally. " Luckily, it is right now. And that did not escape Niko Kovac, who started him in the last eight matches of Ligue 1.

Ten games without defeat

Return to form, return to favor for the former Lille, under contract until 2022 and which aims to end the season with a bang. Already by helping ASM, currently fourth in the L1 standings and which remains in ten games unbeaten (8 wins, 2 draws), to find Europe. “We are aware of our qualities, but Ligue 1 remains tight. PSG may be playable but we remain humble, we take refuge in work. Why not finish European if you keep this mentality, "he said. Playable, PSG? Maybe he looked like he was three weeks ago. A little less now, after a demonstration in Barcelona (victory 4-1) . “I watched the game and was very happy that Paris did such a performance. They had a quality meeting, rejoices Kovac, before the trip to Paris, this Sunday (9 p.m.). We know the club are building up, we expect a very difficult game. But we don't go to Paris without playing our luck. "

The Asemists will always be able to draw inspiration from their 3-2 victory against PSG in the first leg , after having been led 0-2 on a double from a former house, Kylian Mbappé, "very fit" as coach Kovac notes. Bad news for Sidibé, who, if he makes a start, could come up against his former team-mate more often than in his turn at the Parc des Princes. “We have to try to stop him, but not individually. Everything does not depend on a single player, we must help each other and be up to the task tactically ”, corrects Kovac, at the head of the second Ligue 1 attack.

A place to be taken behind Pavard

In the meantime, the experience de Sidibé, 28, will not be able to harm this young Monegasque team in Paris. "Djibril is a really good guy, smart, and he brings his experience and helps the team a lot," the former Bayern coach confirmed a few weeks ago. It remains to be seen whether Djibril Sidibé will be able to accomplish his second goal: regaining the France team. International 18 times (1 goal), the native of Troyes has not worn the jersey since June 26, 2018, in Russia. However, behind Munich's Benjamin Pavard, no one has really won for the Euro (11 June-11 July) on the right. There is the Lyonnais Léo Dubois, but the 2017 French champion has his card to play and no reason not to believe it. "It's a goal, but I'm working it step by step," he promises. It's an honor to wear the Blues jersey, we want to go back as often as possible. My season was eventful with confinement in England and France and then injuries. We will see in the future. " And maybe as early as March, in the matches against Ukraine (03/24) and Kazakhstan (03/28)?

And that would also give ASM a chance to exist at the Parc des Princes, to get closer to the Top 4. "The level of motivation is very high and we are keen to play a big match against Paris", swears l excellent Aurélien Tchouameni, summing up the Monegasque state of mind. If successful, AS Monaco would come within two lengths of Paris-SG.
