A former Parisian lets loose on Luis Enrique


By: Manu Tournoux

Former Paris Saint-Germain manager Antoine Kombouaré has said everything he thinks about Luis Enrique’s work on the bench of the Parisian club.

Antoine Kombouaré, former player and coach of Paris Saint-Germain, has expressed his admiration for the work of Luis Enrique at the helm of the team. In an interview with L’Équipe, the Kanak coach was full of praise for his Spanish counterpart and his methods, particularly praising his ability to manage a squad made up of international stars.

“I am impressed by the work of Luis Enrique,” ​​Kombouaré said. He does things that few coaches do, except perhaps Guardiola. I think of his way of rotating his workforce, of managing. We will judge at the end of the season, but his ability to get the players, all international, to accept his methods and what he asks of them, that impresses me.

Dembélé in tune

The former manager of FC Nantes then highlights the exemplary mentality that the Gijonais was able to instill in his team. “To repeat counter-pressing, you must have an impeccable state of mind,” he judges.

And added: “I saw, in Saint-Sébastien, (Ousmane) Dembélé, who is perhaps the best dribbler in the world, running everywhere, defending, recovering balls and bringing them out in a hybrid role, of 6 , 8 or 10. And he seemed happy. »
