PSG: "The world’s top 3", Praise fox for Hakimi


Hervé Renard reacted this Saturday to the newspaper Le Parisien to the signing of Achraf Hakimi at PSG during the transfer window. The Saudi Arabia coach offered his first minutes with Morocco at the right-back and is full of praise for him.


Brilliant at Borussia Dortmund then with Inter Milan, Achraf Hakimi will now display all his talent in Ligue 1. PSG has spent more than 60 million euros to recruit the 22-year-old right-back. A good investment to believe Hervé Renard, who launched the defender in the Moroccan selection at only 17 years old, in particular on the advice of a certain Nasser Larguet, then DTN of the African Federation.

“An ideal recruit for PSG? Yes, I think so. He showed his ability to adapt first to Dortmund, at 19, by becoming a starter as a right or left side. He then climbed a new important stage at Inter, the current coach of Saudi Arabia was inflamed in an interview with Le Parisien newspaper.At 22, he already played in Spain at Real Madrid, then he won in Germany and in Italy and now it’s coming to France. “

Renard: “He is part of the world top 3”

From Gregory van der Wiel to Alessandro Florenzi via Serge Aurier, Thomas Meunier or Dani Alves, the QSI version of PSG has never found an indisputable player for the right-back position. By signing Achraf Hakimi, a player with “exceptional qualities” according to Hervé Renard, the Ile-de-France club struck a blow and probably solved its problems in the right lane.


“He has nothing to envy to anyone even if he has not yet had the experience of César Azpilicueta, the defender of Chelsea. He is part of the top 3 in the world, once again assured the former coach of Sochaux and Lille. He still had a very good season with Inter with very good statistics. “

Renard identifies “perfect” system for Hakimi

It remains to be seen how Mauricio Pochettino intends to play him in Paris. Archetypal “modern hyper offensive side”, Achraf Hakimi will have no trouble adapting to the tactical scheme of the Argentine coach according to Hervé Renard. Even if using it as a right piston should make it possible to fully exploit its offensive potential.


“Inter Milan with three central defenders was a perfect system for him, because it allows him to be in the attacking phase all the time and to have a little less defensive work to do, finally analyzed his former manager at Atlas Lions. But he’s capable of evolving in a 4-defender scheme. “
