Marco Veratti revealed everyone at PSG are amazed at just how good Mauro Icardi is.
The Argentine collected his first hat-trick for the club in Wednesday’s 6-1 drubbing of Saint Etienne in the Coupe de la Ligue quarter-final.
“Mauro? He may not touch the ball, he knows the ball will reach him and he will score, he is always ready,” Verratti told Canal +. This is his main characteristic of Mauro. We didn’t think it was going to be as good, the first six months are always difficult, but it is incredible and we hope it will continue like this.”
Starting the year well is important for everyone and for the team,” Icardi told reporters. “We already did it with the last match in the Coupe de France, we demonstrated the team we have. And today, at home, we once again demonstrated the team we had, facing another opponent, by making a great match.
“The fantastic four [Icardi, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Angel Di Maria]? We are working to improve, to have an oiled collective game, to attack together, to defend together, to do it in the best way. We know what we have to do. That’s why we will have good results. We know that if we want to play with four forwards we must all make the sacrifices together. And that’s what we’ve been doing since the coach changed systems. And we’re doing it very well. ”
