Pablo Longoria made noise a few weeks ago by criticizing the training of French coaches. Words that did not necessarily please the main stakeholders. After several technicians, Claude Puel also wanted to respond to the president of OM.

A few weeks ago, Pablo Longoria created controversy. For the Spanish press, the president of OM criticized the training of French coaches: “In France, there is no French model of the game. Objectively, if we analyze the whole of the globe, it is one of the countries which exports the fewest coaches. They are not selling collective ideas. But individually, it is the formation that exports the most players because the French player continues to play in the streets. “Words that did not meet with unanimity among the main stakeholders. After Antoine Kombouaré or Raymond Domenech, Claude Puel wanted to answer the Spaniard.

“He is a very young leader, who is discovering our football. For the show, you need high level players. Ligue 1 is formative, so our players are not ready. But the coaches put them forward, because the economy of the clubs depends on it. What they do with the raw material is already very interesting. Without mentioning them, there are quite a few teams in our first two divisions which have a recognizable style. Our players have a little individual touch, because, at this age, we let them express themselves. They spend the stages later, abroad rather than here, where they represent assets liable to fill deficits. If there was a global problem with our training, there would not be as many outlets in England, Italy or Germany, ”he explained in an interview for Le Journal Du Dimanche.
