Lorient president: Guendouzi is more of an offensive midfielder than a defensive midfielder
“Each time he is tested at the upper level, at U16, U17, U19, each time it took him only a few times to become the boss of the team,” Lorient president Loic Fery remembers.
“We were all very impressed by how he plays with his head up,” remembers Fery. “Very much in the style of what Lorient had been historically playing, our passing game.
“That is what characterises him. I know he plays in front of the defence, but he is more of an offensive midfielder than a defensive midfielder. He is always looking for the impossible pass, the pass to make the difference.”
