Lucas Tousart, the defensive midfielder of the French Olympic team, was full of praise for his teammate, André-Pierre Gignac.
In full preparation for the Tokyo Olympic Games, the Blues won this Friday against the South Korea (2-1) in a friendly match. At the microphone of RMC, the French international of Hertha Berlin seemed amazed by the contribution of André-Pierre Gignac, the Tigres striker, on and off the field. ” I didn’t know him from everything, he said. He knew the staff, which is important, and plays a big brother role with young players, even older ones. He’s always there to give advice, encourage guys so it’s true that he’s a motivation. »
The French Olympic Team has clearly found its leader a few days before the start of the Olympic tournament if we can trust the words of Lucas Tousart. ” At his age, it’s remarkable compared to what he is capable of doing on the pitch, what he gives off compared to others., explained the midfielder. But it’s great to have a guy like that in the group, who will train everyone and who can make his teammates want to outdo themselves.. »
