“He is the first to do the pressing”

What to think of this covetousness on the part of the Ile-de-France leaders? Asked this Friday by RMC Sports, the 1998 world champion Emmanuel Petit validates the idea. And the former Blues midfielder does not see it as a very good solution only for the statistics of the former member of the French championship.

“He has become the third-best goals/minutes ratio player in Serie A history. He is having an extraordinary season. Every year it progresses. He has incredible qualities that are sorely lacking at PSG. He has a physical presence in the area, he is a very good finisher. He has a killer instinct. He is the first to do the pressing. He’s a bulldog losing the ball!”
