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.”
