One of the signings that the most needed Real Madrid resided on his left side. After the failure of Théo Hernandez and without showing the necessary confidence in Sergio Reguilón, the arrival of a reliable and top-level defender was essential for Madrid’s goals season after season.
Accompany Marcelo with a different side profile is the best possible news for the white box. The Brazilian is a player with a greater offensive vocation and who, in addition, has seen his performance decline for a club with the highest demands such as Real Madrid.
The arrival of Ferland mendy from Olympique de Lyon is a real balm for this team. Zinedine Zidane considers him one of his most important footballers, a fixed. And it is that their contributions both in the Champions League and in LaLiga are vital to fight for the double.
Above all, Ferland Mendy is an excellent player for this Real Madrid due to his defensive qualities. He does not lavish excessively in attack, but he limits himself to coming up with head, with sense and always finding the best option. Meanwhile, behind is a bolt. A player capable of drying up the rival winger whoever he is, as we saw in the first leg of the quarterfinals of the maximum continental competition, facing players of the stature of Mo Salah the Sad Mane.
Speed, physique, power, intelligence in decision-making… One of the best left-backs in the world who continues to work without making a lot of noise, but giving great individual and collective results to his team.
