Speaking to La Voix du Nord, former Lille recruiter Jean-Michel Vandamme discussed Champions’ League finalist Idrissa Gueye’s time at Les Dogues.
“I had to push to convince Michel Seydoux (ex-president) to invest €600k for both of them (Gueye & Pape Souaré) and we succeeded. Immediately, we say that Idrissa was a machine in recovering possession with this capacity to push forward. He maybe not flashy but his guaranteed quality. He wears the workers’ jacket behind Neymar. He is the indispensable player at PSG.”
