He is not a Ballon d’Or by chance. He attacks as well as he defends, and I am inspired by the way he moves.”

“Tony throws crazy passes. You see it in games, but in training it’s even worse”, he jokes. And about Casemiro, he highlights that it helped him keep calm in the game and not receive yellow cards too soon.

He explains that he naturally approached the francophones of the group (the French Benzema and Mendy, and the Belgians Courtois and Hazard), but which also maintains a very good relationship with other youngsters like Vinicius and Rodrygo. To the point that the two Brazilian strikers entrust their haircut to Sebastiao Camavinga, elder brother of the white midfielder.

The Austrian David Alaba, who arrived at the team at the same time as Camavinga, plays the role of older brother in the locker room. “He is someone who talks to you and helps you a lot. We have a relationship. But I can tell you that if I do something wrong, he will tell me firmly,” she explains.

The French international also talks about his idea of ​​the game, and in this aspect he considers that “you can have an impact on the game without being ‘decisive’ in the way it is understood, but that is not measured as well statistically and the fans They pay less attention.

In his opinion, “the game without the ball is revealing” about a player. and he confesses that when he arrived at the Rennes training center, his home club, “I never defended”, but “one day I started defending like crazy and I became another player”. Now, at Real Madrid “everything goes faster on the pitch, in your development, in everything”, he admits.
