Elected player of the month for March in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, Edon Zhegrova briefly spoke to the teams of Prime Videoreturning to certain references in his young career.

Recently, Edon Zhegrova celebrated his 25th birthday, it was during the last moments of March, a period during which he shone for a long time until winning the title of best player of the month of March. During this period, the Kosovar left his mark, notably during the Northern Derby during which he scored a saving double. This match, significant in a season for LOSC, is also its reference match: “It’s the one against Lens, the derby. We won, I scored two goals. I know what it means to the fans. I was very motivated, so I’m happy with this victory because it’s a derby, it’s a match where you want to score and winhe admits, believing that his reference achievement is none other than one of the one recorded during this famous game. It’s the first goal against Lens (in the return match at home, editor’s note). Nabil (Bentaleb) gave me a perfect ball and my control is good. I came in on the inside and struck from the other side to surprise the goalkeeper. He didn’t expect it, it’s a great goal. It has a special flavor because it was in the derby. I will never forget this moment. »

This achievement, during which he nailed Brice Samba on the spot, Edon Zhegrova repeated the experience this Monday, during the reception of Olympique Lyonnais. The opportunity to hold a celebration that he had promised several days ago: “In fact, I don’t just have a celebration (like a signing, editor’s note). But before the matches, we talk between players about what we can do. For example, we were drinking coffee one morning before the match and I said: “What if we celebrated a goal like we drink coffee, it’s easy to do”. (Smile). And at the end, I scored a goal and I offered to do that. And we did it with Jonathan David. For the next goal, I thought of something, you will be surprised! », he said. A few days later, on the lawn of the Decathlon Arena – Stade Pierre Mauroy, it was possible to see him with the mask of the English rapper M Huncho to celebrate his goal.

Finally, author of an excellent individual season which allows him to apply for the title of best player of the year in Ligue 1, Edon Zhegrova highlighted the work carried out by his coach. Paulo Fonseca is none other than his reference in his young career: “It’s Paulo Fonseca. I think he’s the best coach I’ve had in my career. He helped me a lot to be a better player, a better person, better at everything”he confides to the teams of Prime Video.

His dribbling reference: “I think everyone knows it, I don’t know how to explain it. I don’t even have his name, but every time I do it, I go left then right (a short inside hook followed by an outside hook to get back on his left foot, editor’s note). This movement is my specialty. I’ve been doing it since I was little, it works all the time, so I continue to do it. I’ve seen other players do it, like Neymar, Ronaldinho, Messi. My reference player is Lionel Messi, the best player in the history of football. 100%. He’s a left-hander, but there’s only one like Messi. »

Its reference partner: “I would say Jonathan David or Angel Gomes. Jona for his goals and Angel for his brain, his movements and his way of passing. »
