Poland’s Glik joins Monaco

Monaco (AFP) – Polish international central defender Kamil Glik has left Torino to join Monaco on a four-year deal, the French Ligue 1 outfit said on Monday.

The 28-year-old captain of Serie A side Torino was a key figure in Poland’s run to the Euro 2016 quarter-finals where they lost on penalties to Portugal.

Glik, who has 46 caps for Poland, played 131 games for Torino since the 2012/2013 season, scoring 12 goals.

“He showed at the Euro his power, charisma and defensive qualities and this will be a major plus for us. We welcome him to Monaco,” Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev said.

Glik said he would give “the maximum to help the team and the club achieve their objectives,” adding he was “impatient to begin to write this new page (in a) new and very exciting challenge.”

Monaco signed up-and-coming left-back Benjamin Mendy, 21, on a five-year deal from Marseille two weeks ago.
