AS Monaco is one of the most successful clubs in France having won seven league titles and five Coupe de France trophies. The club has also competed regularly in Europe and reached the final of the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1992 and the UEFA Champions League in 2004.
One of the most successful periods of the club was during the 1970s and late 1980s under the management of Lucien Leduc and Arsène Wenger. During that period, Les Rouge et Blancs (The Red and Whites) were amongst the leading teams in Europe.
In 2011, 66.6% of the club was bought by Russian billionaire and long-time Monaco resident Dmitry Rybolovlevco. That financial injection saw AS Monaco join the ranks of Ligue 1.
