Roy put in his place for Lees Melou


By: Manu Tournoux

Eric Roy is full of praise for Pierre Lees Melou. Jérôme Rothen prefers to calm things down.

After 24 days of Ligue 1, Stade Brestois is in second place in Ligue 1. The Breton club is having an exceptional season, in which Pierre Lees-Melou is no stranger at all. Eric Roy even believes that his attacking midfielder deserves to be called up to the France team.

“He is someone exceptional, who hovers over the team and over Ligue 1. For me, in the position he plays in, there is no equivalence in France. He can play anywhere and even deserves to have a selection”declared the Brest coach at a press conference, after the victory against Le Havre (1-0) on Sunday.

Inexperienced at the highest level

Exaggerated comments according to Jérôme Rothen. “When you saw international players blossoming next to you, don’t tell me that Lees Melou is the best midfielder in France today and that he deserves a selection. Make the comparison with the players who are in the France team today. You know that it’s not because you’re having a good season in your life, in Brest… You don’t have a reference in the European Cup”estimates the sports consultant on RMC.

“A selection for the French team is earned, it has to be worked on. Throwing around that name because everything is going well in Brest, that bothers me because it’s false cronyism for me. He’s a very good player, but today it’s night and day compared to international players.”continues the former attacking midfielder about Pierre Lees-Melou, author of four goals since the start of the season.
