At just 21 years old, Georgian Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is setting the football world on fire. This summer, Napoli did not hesitate to spend €10 million to recruit the winger who has 4 goals and 2 assists in 7 matches with the Partenopei. However, one man has huge regrets: Willy Sagnol. The coach of Georgia had indeed tried to convince several French clubs to recruit Kvaratskhelia. In vain.
“The risks were almost nil on a financial level. (…) It would bother me if someone, in French football, told me: “ah yeah, he’s a great player”. Because all I heard was: « he’s a player who’s tired after the 70th », « yeah Willy you know, he’s only a Georgian, he’s not a Brazilian, it’s less glamorous »he said on RMC Sportsspecifying that only one tricolor club really tried its luck.
