Luan Peres' teammate in Bruges, Benoît Poulain spoke about the qualities of the Brazilian defender who joined OM this summer. And he admits that he has a little doubt.
In search of defensive reinforcements this summer, the OM attracted three additional axials namely Leonardo Balerdi, transferred definitively from Borussia Dortmund, William Saliba , on loan from Arsenal , and Luan Peres , recruited € 4.5m from Santos. The latter is the least known of the three, but he is nevertheless very appreciated by Jorge Sampaoli who had him under his orders in Santos in the past. This is not the first time that Luan Peres evolves in Europe since it also passed by Bruges where it did not go very well. Despite everything, Benoît Poulain , teammate of the Brazilian in Belgium, deciphers his qualities.
“If the team is less well, it can get complicated”
“From the first practice, we make a possession and I see straight away that he likes the duel, that it is rough. I found that he read the trajectories very well. He didn't have a technique as sharp as now, but he knew it and he played with his qualities. Now, he has added a tactical and technical palette which makes him a modern player, ”he assures So Foot before expressing a little doubt about the rest of the season at OM for Luan Peres : “He's going to have a good season. The only thing I dread is that it's harder to avoid errors in this system. If the team is worse, it can get complicated. But I think it's going to be okay. “
