Guy Stéphan did not hesitate to hand out good points at a press conference this Wednesday.

A year and a half ago, during the World Cup in Qatar, he had to face a barrage of criticism. Much water has flowed under the bridge since then, and Jules Koundé has found the physical and mental resources to respond to all his detractors.

On Monday, the Barça defender showed his worth in the round of 16 won byFrench team against Belgium (1-0). Authoritative in his defensive interventions, the former Bordeaux player personified the solidity of the Blues in this tight match. Better still, Koundé even managed to surprise observers by showing himself to be active offensively, with a precise cross for Marcus Thuram and several sharp climbs.

“He was criticized a lot in that position.”

This excellent performance allowed Jules Koundé to obtain the title of best player of the match. Above all, it confirms the defender’s sparkling form since the start of this Euro 2024. Something that Didier Deschamps’ staff did not fail to highlight.

« This allows us to highlight Jules who is a very high level professional, Guy Stéphan, present at the press conference, enthused.. He has been criticized a lot, in this position. He plays at Barcelona as a right-back. In this Euro, he is great, on the defensive side where he is able to resist and offensively. He is having a perfect Euro. An outing that should not leave Jules Koundé indifferent.
