“I can not be surprised [by how good he is] because when you have such a record, such a number of matches, such trophies, it is because you are a very great professional,” Galtier said, as per Goal.

“He has confirmed it [right away for me]. Leo does all the training sessions, he is involved, he is smiling, he exchanges with his partners, he is an inspiration for our players and I enjoy every moment to see him on the field, to say hello to him every day because he represents the example to follow.

“He has won everything, he just missed the World Cup but at club level he has won everything. He has won individual awards but he is not satisfied, far from it. I think he is happy and when Leo smiles, the team smiles. He is loved and admired by his peers.”
