"I win more aerial duels than Sergio Ramos"

Although it measures about 1.80, the central 21 years, by which the Seville paid more than 20 million euros last summer, he has boasted of his aerial game in the last interview he has granted. In her, Jules Koundé has dared to compare with Sergio Ramos.

According to Jules Koundé, opponents do not usually dare with Sergio Ramos

"Rivals believe that aerial dueling will be easier against me, I feel that they attack me in that aspect and it indicates to me. When I watch my games I notice that I play many more balls above than the others. But that motivates me. I prepare to face 1.90 strikers and I end up winning more aerial duels than Sergio Ramos, why opponents do not usually dare with him”, Said the defender in Onze World.

On his adaptation to LaLiga Santander, where he is slowly settling in the eleven of Julen Lopetegui, Jules Koundé has stated: “It is a championship that It has much more rhythm than the French league, and also It is more technical in my opinion. But what caught my attention from the beginning was the intensity. All teams want to get the ball played not caring about the opposite pressure at all. And everyone has an established game plan. Even when a team wants to play long ball, it does so using a preset strategy. Things work like this. I feel that everything is more worked and is more precise"

If you go to the Olympic Games you would miss part of the preseason with Sevilla

Optimistic for the future, the Frenchman hopes to have the opportunity to be in the Olympic Games and in the European Championship next summer: “It's not something I dream of, It is clearly an objective that I have in mind. I checked the dates and decided not to take any holiday tickets because I want to be on those appointments. It doesn't just depend on me and what I do, it's not me who decides. If I have a message to send to Sylvain Ripoll or Didier Deschamps? No, I do not have. The message is transmitted on the grass"
