We study monopole condensation as a mechanism for colour confinement in Nf=2 QCD with adjoint fermions. This model shows distinct chiral and deconfinement transitions. We find that the monopole condensation order parameter satisfies all the expected properties and is consistent with a first order deconfinement transition. We also study the chiral transition and find that the magnetic order parameter is not affected by it.
