Monaco striker Wissam Ben Yedder, author of a hat-trick in Rodez (3-1) on Saturday in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France, is “a great professional”, praised his coach Adi Hütter after the match.
Author of seven goals in his last four matches in all competitions, the French international is currently going through a prosperous period. “He is a great professional. He knows how to distinguish between the situation in his private life and what he does on the pitch,” Hütter said. “He does his job every time, scoring a lot of goals.”
Ben Yedder was indicted last summer for “rape, attempted rape and sexual assault” and placed under judicial supervision. After experiencing a rare period of scarcity in the fall, the current second top scorer in Ligue 1 has regained his effectiveness and Rodez paid the price on Saturday.
“He’s a great player. He is not international for nothing,” commented Ruthenian coach Didier Santini. “He senses things before others, that’s his greatest quality,” he explained. “He is not tall, he is not strong, but he stands on his legs and has this ability to eliminate with a touch of the ball.”
