Jorge Sampaoli impressed with Mattéo Guendouzi attitude: “He’s a natural leader.”

As reported by Le Provence, the Marseille manager Jorge Sampaoli has praised the leadership of Arsenal loanee midfielder Mattéo Guendouzi after a superb season so far at OM. Sampaoli explained at his press conference before the meeting with Lille: 

“Aside from his youth, Mattéo has a particular energy. He has a desire to win and he’s a natural leader. We imagined that would be the case but that it would happen over time. Seeing this in addition to his performances, we have an energy that everyone can envy. It’s contagious and it’s a very important value in life.”

“Experience is important for everyone but, for young people, sometimes difficult events are not good experiences. There’s also personal capacity on the mental side. Guendouzi, for example, he’s 22-years-old but he acts like he’s 30. The most important thing is maturity.”
