Monaco won the Ligue 1 title for the first time in 17 years after a 2-0 win at home to Saint-Etienne.
Needing a point to be crowned French champions for the eighth time, the in-form Kylian Mbappe scored the opener in style. Mbappe latched on to captain Radamel Falcao’s through ball, skipped around the goalkeeper and slotted in. Forward Valere Germain made sure of the win in injury time with a tap-in from close range.
Slightly premature as it may be, Monaco’s thoughts have already turned to celebrating the championship in fitting fashion, with the news that the club have gone and booked 50 Cent to perform at their victory party.
“The American star will come to celebrate the excellent results of Falcao’s teammates this Sunday in the Palace Square in the Principality,” reads a statement on Monaco’s official club website.
Fiddy will give a private concert for the players and staff, with Monaco club members also having the opportunity to apply for free tickets.
There are also strong rumours that Bruno Mars will be dropping in at some point to take part in the festivities.
Let’s just hope the Rogues et Blancs don’t blow it now!
