Marcel Tisserand maybe familiar as a centre-back rather than the right-back position he holds in this team. The Democratic Republic of Congo defender is a product of the Monaco youth system and spent 3 years with the first team.

The 25-year old spent his first professional career with the reserve side while moving on loan to Lens and Toulouse in the next following years. The versatile defender spent 3 seasons with the club and failed to breach into the first team setup making just 7 appearances for the club before moving onto to join German side FC Ingolstadt.

The young Frenchman spent 3 seasons with the club with a year on loan at Zulte Waregem in 2016/17 season.

The French centre-back though couldn't break into the defensive line containing Kamil Glik and was eventually sold to Mainz in 2017 for a reported fee of €4.5 million, where he was very impressive opening the door to join Bundesliga giants Dortmund in 2018.

The 22-year old made just 10 appearances for the Monaco based side.

A product of the famed Le Havre Academy, Mendy was born the 17th of July 1994 and joined AS Monaco from Olympique Marseille in 2016 for a reported fee of around €12 million. The first position with more than one world class player available for Jardim during his time. Benjamin Mendy eclipses his French counterpart and PSG left back Laywin Kurzawa barely due to the influence Mendy had on the title-winning Monaco side.

Mendy spent just a single season with the club making 25 appearances and crucially helping Monaco to their first title in 17 years.

Mendy moved onto to Manchester City for a reported fee of around €52 million in 2017.
