Ferland Mendy: “In Lyon he defended less and attacked a lot”

first_imgFerland Mendy has granted an interview on Real Madrid Television, in which he has been excited in the previous of his second Classic with the white elastic. The side, which points to ownership next Sunday, also explained his relationship with Zinedine Zidane and Karim Benzema and how it has adapted quickly to the demands of Spanish football. Relationship with Zidane: “In my first meeting with him we talked and he told me that he was welcome, that he was one more player of his team and that he showed what I am worth, that he gave everything.”Spanish football and French football: “The difference is that the level of play is higher. When you are going to train it is to work, reach that level as soon as possible and demonstrate it in the matches. Above all, demonstrate your level. The game with the ball is faster , more displacements, more races, that makes the difference between the League and Ligue 1. You can lose against a team that is at the bottom of the table, but plays as one that is at the top of Ligue 1 “.Adaptation: “When you get to a new team it is difficult to let go directly, but I think that game by game I am letting go and I hope to reach the maximum to contribute more in attack. I am more focused on defending well than attacking. In Lyon I defended less and attacked a lot , so I have to find the intermediate point to do it right. “He already shone in the Classic: “I go inside to free Vinicius Jr. He holds the ball, I go deep and passes it to me. Then I see that Karim is unchecked and I do not doubt it, I put a powerful center and he marks. I had seen him before center and I did not hesitate. We know well that Karim likes the ball there and it came out perfect. “Benzema: “I talk a lot with Karim, he gives me a lot of advice and we also talk about how he likes the ball to get to him. I understand very well with Benzema on and off the pitch, so I try my best to give him good balls.” . Ambition: “Real Madrid is the determination to win everything, to get everything. Get each trophy and try to win as many games. Be as long as possible at a very high level. It is the requirement, even when you lose in a training you dislike. When you win, everything is fine. It is the real desire to always win. Even in training it is like that. It does not matter the exercise, you want to win. When you are there, when you train, you want to win absolutely everything. “Segundo Real Madrid – Barça: “It is true that my first Classic was special. I had already played at the Camp Nou with Lyon, but with the Madrid shirt it is another environment, it is different. It is a game that is not lived in the same way as another. It is a match you want to win. “last_img read more
