It was easy to predict quality, he is a very good player.“But he scored a very high number of goals for a midfielder. It shows you need to have instinct and quality to score and he has it all.“He strikes the ball well, heads well, cool when he is one-on-one with the goalkeeper. He finds space in the penalty area.

We bring on Lamela if he can.“We bring Dele. We didn’t have a presence in the box, the opposition is going to try with the low block so let’s try to have one with Dele.“We are trying to do things so very difficult for us.

Since that time [of the policeman fracas in Paris], I have had a daughter, who will soon be two years old.“Before I had this hatred [of the press], if you say true things about me, no problem, I assume. But I saw crazy things, completely off the plate. That’s what put me in this impossible state. But I never fell for it.“It’s easy to say, about a player at PSG: ‘Ah, he didn’t respect the institution, PSG must take sanctions.’ But, that is not for you to say! That’s why I say that in France, it is easy to criticise.“Here [in England], they know there is a problem with a player and they say, ‘We will see what the club does.’ It is different from: ‘He must be punished.’“They [journalists] can write whatever they want, but they have to keep in mind that the person they are writing about is a human being. He has a family. When you speak badly of a person, are you being objective?”Jake Lambourne23 Feb 2020, 11:31 amLIVIN’ LAMELA LOCAFormer Arsenal defender Martin Keown has lauded the appearance of Erik Lamela against Chelsea.Lamela came on as a second half substitute and it was his pass that led to Antonio Rudier netting a late own goal.Speaking on Match of the Day, Keown said: ” When they made the changes, Dele Alli coming on, Lamela.

Thermal cameras expected to be used at Tour de France
