Alex Disasi, starting Sunday with Chelsea, “loved” playing at the top against Manchester City (4-4), “crazy” and “strong to live with”, a performance which was accompanied by a recall to the France team: “The day ended really well,” he summarized to AFP. “It was crazy, a match with a lot of intensity, a great show. Experiencing it on the pitch, with this scenario full of twists and turns, it was really something powerful to experience,” declared the defender in the mixed zone.
The 25-year-old played the entire match against the championship leader, which ended 4-4 after a penalty converted by Chelsea in added time. “The fact that we came back three times demonstrated the team's state of mind: we didn't give up, we played hard until the end. This is the state of mind that we had to display this evening against a big team,” he summed up.
This type of match, “it reassured me even more in my choice to come here (to England)”, continued the French international with four selections, recruited this summer from AS Monaco. “Only here can we experience moments like these every weekend, it was really fun, pleasant, I loved it!”, he added.
The icing on the cake, Disasi was called up on Sunday by Didier Deschamps for the next meetings of the French team, replacing Ibrahima Konaté, injured with Liverpool and forced to withdraw. “I found out when I entered the locker room, I received a little message. The day ends very well. Now, I'm going to rest and tomorrow (Monday) we're going to go to the Château (de Clairefontaine), quietly,” he concluded.
