Really he’s preferring Kounde over Pavard. Pavard was never going to play CB in a back 4 for France.

Shame he’s got zero minutes so far though.
Surprised?

He also doesn’t have a clue on how to play Thuram… completely clueless

At least hes getting some rest... Also, lol at preferring Kounde, who has been a ghost for France for years.

You would play Pavard in this system? I wouldn't

but... why? He is clearly best suited as RCB in a three men defence

Kounde has better athleticism and recovery speed to deal with a winger imo. Technically I still prefer Pavard.
Pavard is probably faster than Kounde

He’s not, Kounde was one of the fastest players in La Liga in 2023. Quick google search shows he’s about 1 km/h faster.

That doesn't really mean much as no one expects these guys to sprint the pitch 5 times and back. It's all about who's faster in the short burst of sprint for 10-20 meters and I don't feel Kounde is faster than Pavard in that regard. Whether or not he gets the edge on a 60m or 80m or 100m dash is irrelevant as it'd almost never come to that on a duel.

And even if Kounde is faster, it's pretty much on par if it's just 1km/hr (over a sample of 60m dash I imagine).

Either way, they could play together by benching Upamecano.
