“I take a step back from the critics in France. I left France young, I haven’t played a lot of Ligue 1 matches so the French public don’t know me. Or they just know me through my strike at the 2018 World Cup, said Benjamin Pavard. That’s where people got interested in me. ”

History with Pogba

In this interview with CFC, the Bayern Munich player, whom he joined in July 2019, also explains that he would like to be respected a little more. “I would have liked, because I am French, to be more respected in France,” he emphasizes. But I’m not going to force people to watch Bayern Munich games. The real ones, who know football, know the performances that I have made and that I am doing, said Pavard, defending his record. In the French team, we sometimes also lack automation. “

Confident of his abilities, Benjamin Pavard, who also indicated that he preferred to play central rather than side, also recalled that he was a good defender: “In principle, we ask a defender to defend well. Today, the side is also bringing offensively. Of course, on paper, Pavard may be less sexy than Hakimi or Arnold, but I find that defensively I am more complete. If I was not efficient enough, I will not start and I will not play for the French team. ”

Finally, the former Lille also returned to the “quarrel” with Paul Pogba in the final against Spain in the League of Nations. “I watched the action several times, we talked about it again with Paul, he apologized for reacting in this way, he confessed. Ok, I’m not moving well enough on this action, nor am I at a standstill, and there could have been other player movements as well. We had an explanation, I don’t blame him, we talked about it after the match, everything is settled. “
