Princess Stephanie’s son named Monaco vice-president’s assistant
Princess Stephanie of Monaco‘s son Louis Ducruet has been appointed assistant to the club’s vice-president Vadim Vasilyev, the Principality outfit announced on Monday.
Ducruet, 26, moves from his position at the Ligue 1 strugglers’ international recruitment department which he has held since 2015 to working with the Russian on general recruitment and football affairs.
“Louis has Monaco running through his veins. He holds a desire to manage the club one day. That’s why I chose to help him along that path by allowing him to work closer with me,” Vasilyev said.
“It’s a new step for me which allows me to make the way the club works from a football point of view more global,” Ducruet said.
Vasilyev re-appointed Portuguese coach Leonardo Jardim in January three months after sacking him and replacing him with Thierry Henry.
Monaco sit in 18th place in the French league table with only goal difference keeping them out of the automatic relegation spots.
Jardim’s next fixture is a trip to Montpellier on Sunday after a busy transfer window which included the signing of Spanish midfieler Cesc Fabregas and veteran defender Naldo.
