The winger has spoken with Le Parisien, as recounted by SO FOOT, on his love of football and his specific focus on the Championship side.

The Frenchman has been with PSG since August of last year, when he joined from Barcelona for €50 million, marking his return to his hometown after starting out at Rennes.

“Even the English D2, especially Sunderland because I know the owner, Kyril Louis-Dreyfus. There, I saw almost all the CAN matches. There are days, I attack the English championship at 1 p.m., and at 9 p.m., I switch to Spain.”
