Briggs joined City from Preston North End

MANCHESTER CITY’S most experienced analyst, Aaron Briggs, has left the club after nine years to join Monaco.

Briggs joined City in 2011 from Preston North End, initially as a performance analyst with the Under-18s. Since August 2018 he has been the club’s senior first-team performance analyst. At Monaco, his title will be Tactical Analysis Coach.

On LinkedIn, Briggs wrote: “After nine years at the club I grew up supporting, it’s time for a new challenge. Being fortunate to be given the opportunity to become the U18s Performance Analyst within the Academy at Platt Lane all that time ago I have enjoyed every minute since.

“To all the wonderful staff who have helped me develop I will forever be grateful - thank you. Time for the next chapter.”

Monaco already have a strong English contingent, with Paul Mitchell as their Sporting Director and Laurence Stewart the Head of Recruitment.
