ATHENS (Greece) – The France Of Adrien Rabiotalready qualified for the next Euro 2024, will be involved tomorrow in Greece (mathematically eliminated) for the last day of Group B. The Juventus midfielder spoke on the eve of the match, reiterating the national team’s motivations in finishing in 1st place overall at FIFA level: “I’m motivated to win a match. I think it’s the same for my teammates. We have challenges together, like finishing with the maximum number of points. If we win and do better than Argentina, we will finish the first year in the FIFA rankings. They are small goals that we have in mind“.
On his role between Juve and France
“I’m a leader in my own way. I think I am. We can all be this in our own way. I’ve said it before, I define myself as a balance player. I have a different role here compared to Juventus where I am more offensively projected. My role in the French team is more about balance – he adds – I am a leader in my own way. I’m more of a leader on the pitch, in the locker room, in private. It’s more my personality. We need all these personalities to form a group that works well”.
On the Pogba affair
“I don’t know what will happen to him, I have nothing to tell you. Afterwards we talk, see each other before the national team, have dinner with friends. You know Paul, he’s always very smiling, but I think the situation weighs on him. I hope he gets the least severe punishment. We are all devastated because he is a great player, a great man and to go through everything he had to go through is a lot for one person.“.
