Bayern Munich's Benjamin Pavard Believes He Is More Complete Than Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold And PSG's Achraf Hakimi
Bayern Munich right-back Benjamin Pavard doesn't think he gets the credit he deserves and is the best in the world.
The French International told CanalPlus he is more defensively complete than Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold And PSG's Achraf Hakimi but doesn't get the headlines they get.
There are a few brilliant right-backs in world football right now. Who is best is up for debate.
Here is what Bayern's right-back has to say on the topic:
“Great coaches put me at right-back because they have confidence in my abilities."
“It is not because of my beautiful eyes or my hair. On paper, Pavard is perhaps less sexy than Hakimi or Alexander-Arnold, but I think that defensively I am more complete.”
All three are world class. Without bias though, I still choose Trent Alexander-Arnold.
The myth of him not being able to defend is ridiculous. His mistakes get highlighted becuase of jealousy from rival fans.
If you look at stats, he has some of the best defensive stats in the league.
This is a player who has played against Neymar, Leroy Sane, Eden Hazard and many other brilliant wingers and has kept them at bay.
Rivals will forget those games to push their agenda out when he makes a defensive error. One that their players make on occasion too.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is still a young lad. He has still a lot to learn. To do what he already does from the right-back position is unbelievable.
If he continues the way he is going then he could easily be the best right-back the league has had.
