PSG: Mathieu Bodmer would see Verratti become the sentinel of Pochettino

In an interview with the Parisian, former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Mathieu Bodmer, now a consultant for Prime Video, sees Marco Verratti as the perfect sentinel for Mauricio Pochettino’s team: “For me, this is the position where he is the best. He is able to take out balloons under pressure and never panics. I would even say that he likes it and that it reassures his defenders. Then, he can draw on himself two or three players, and thus create shifts to break the opposing pressing. This allows the attackers to benefit from space, and sometimes to have 60 to 70 m in front of them. “

The former Parisian also adds that the adaptation of the Italian international (48 caps, 3 goals) to this position should not take much time at the captain’s club, considering that it is his natural position: “Moreover, when he arrived at PSG, I remember that he was positioned in front of the defense in training. He could not do it in a match, because Thiago Motta was very successful in this position and collected all the balls. But in reality, Marco was playing a little higher, but quite close to Motta, and both were ensuring the balls came out. Also, it was difficult for the opponent to defend on both. ”
