Coming to the close of his contract at the end of June, Andrea Raggi was not offered an extension by AS Monaco.

Having arrived on the Rock from Bologna in 2012, the transalpine defender joined the Principality’s club during their descent into Ligue 2. A short-lived episode for Andrea Raggi, since he will be one of the central actors in the club’s return to Ligue 1 play the following season, following the team’s coronation as Ligue 2 champion in 2013.

He was also part of the side that earned the title of French champions when AS Monaco won the league championship in 2017.

Having featured in 11 matches this past season (including 6 in Ligue 1), and now left free by the management of the club, Andre Raggi, 35, leaves the Principality after seven seasons and 230 games under the colors of Monaco. “The club would like to thank the Italian defender for all these years in red and white and wish him the best for the future,” wrote the principality’s club on its Twitter account and website.

Another departure for AS Monaco, currently working on unloading an overcrowded workforce.
