Houssem Aouar: “What gives me the most pleasure on the pitch is the repetition of passes.”

Speaking in an interview with Canal Plus, Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar drilled down on his infatuation for football.

“Sometimes, you see a player dribble, and he beats one, two or three men. That’s great, but what we didn’t get to see was what he maybe could have done with a single touch. It’s totally different. You gain so much time with a single touch. What gives me the most pleasure on the pitch is the repetition of passes. When you are able to find each other with your eyes closed. It creates a sort of infatuation between us. Whilst we take enormous pleasure to have the ball, we do our absolute best to get it back.”
