Dario Benedetto felt bullied by Ligue 1’s defenders initially: “I struggled at the beginning.”

Speaking to La Tuittera 52 (via Nico Faure), Marseille striker Dario Benedetto discussed his arrival from Argentina last summer and the differences between Ligue 1 and football with Boca Juniors.

“In Argentina, you can come across big, strong defenders, but slow ones. Here, they are big, strong and fast too! I struggled at the beginning… our aim is to play in the Champions’ League. Today, we are six points ahead of 3rd but there are still a lot of matches to come and we are going to have make sure we don’t get overconfident… It is going to be tricky to catch Mbappé up for the golden boot but I am not scared of anything and I am going to try to score in every match!
