Monaco defender Jemerson names Lacazette as one of the toughest players he’s faced
“Cavani and Lacazette,” he told Goal.
“Besides their quality with the ball, they are very intelligent without the ball, they move a lot, they know how to get away from the defenders, they open spaces.
“They make life very difficult for the defenders.”
Former German star Stefan Effenburg wants to see more from Mesut Ozil
“I have seen matches with Mesut, where I say: he must do more.
“I remember well those matches against Bayern in the Champions League. He disappointed many people there – including Joachim Low.
“Steven Gerrard said he would let his team down and be a burden in matches away from home. You can’t say he is completely wrong. Ozil has to see and realize that.
“It is not like he is 20 years old and a young player. He turns 29 in October. You wait for an improvement in that area for years. You wish for a development, but it hasn’t happened.”
Craig Burley on Mesut Ozil’s spat with former Arsenal players
“Here’s a guy Mesut Ozil who is clearly a talent.
“But he does it when it suits him, not particularly in the bigger games for Arsenal.
“He’s talking about ex-players and criticising former players for criticising, saying ‘get behind us and support us, oh and by the way, in the meantime I am just going to sit back and hold the club to ransom on a £300,000-a-week contract (offer)’ or whatever it is.
“He’s not signed has he, so he’s not exactly supporting his club by not signing a contract, but they’ve got to get behind him whilst he makes his mind up? I think not.”
Julian Draxler on why he wasn’t interested in a move to Arsenal
“I am greatly looking forward to playing with Neymar and Mbappe — but, if players are bought for €222m or €180m, they have an advantage on paper.
“But I am confident — that’s why I didn’t think about leaving Paris.”
