Lenglet's Spanish teacher, who has given lessons to countless players, said about his pupil: "Of all the footballers I have taught, he is the most responsible of them all. He always has their homework done and they pay great attention."
"He is a starter, he rarely gets injured and he has a great competitive mentality," former Sevilla and France defender Julien Escude said. "He has all the characteristics to be a key player in future."
