Christopher Nkunku sends a hell of a message to Didier Deschamps!


“There was a group, a list last month, the objective also is to be in continuity, there are players absent also this time, Nkunku is a player that we follow, he could have been there, he does some very interesting things, he is one of the serious candidates who can have this opportunity, I can only encourage him to continue, on this list I wanted a logic, a continuity, when it happens well, i want to maintain the confidence of the players who were there at the previous camp. “ This is what Didier Deschamps explained three weeks ago on the absence of Christopher Nkunku from the list of the Blues. The national coach invited the RB Leipzig midfielder to continue his momentum. The least we can say is that the former Parisian never stops proving his meteoric rise on the green lawns.

A point of view shared by Achim Beierlorzer, replacing Jesse Marsch positive for Covid-19 on the bench on Wednesday night, who was full of praise for one of the great architects of his team’s 5-0 victory against at Club Brugge: “Christopher is having an exceptional season. He is definitely in the shape of his life and his qualities are incredible. This season, in the space of just a few weeks, he has crossed several milestones which allow him to be considered today as a world-class player ”. It must be said that the extraordinary statistics make the former Parisian titi the best player in Leipzig since the start of the season. With 13 goals and 4 assists in 17 matches in all competitions, Nkunku, crowned best player of October in the Bundesliga, impresses.

An absolute record of goals in the group stage of C1 for a French player

And what about his performances in the Champions League. The cut with the big ears gives wings to the player of RB Leipzig. With 7 goals in just 5 matches (including a double scored yesterday), he ranks third among the top scorers in C1 behind Pole Lewandowski and Ivorian Sébastien Haller. An incredible performance for a midfielder that allows him to enter the history of French football. Indeed, he is the first French player to score 7 goals in the Champions League group stage. He is already doing better than Thierry Henry, Karim Benzema or David Trezeguet who have never scored so much in the group stage. And to think that he still has one match against Manchester City to increase his total goal …

Rather than talk about his situation with the Blues in the press, Christopher Nkunku therefore preferred European fields to send a clear message to Didier Deschamps. If the former Parisian will have to continue to shine, Nkunku will undoubtedly have to leave Leipzig to take a step forward in his career. This is undoubtedly the reason why the 24-year-old tricolor midfielder entrusted his destiny to Pini Zahavi. Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid are already in the running. There is no doubt that evolving in one of its clubs would undoubtedly give a little more credit to someone who has never been so close to the French team …
