Tottenham attack Martin Terrier

What’s next after this ad

An almost perfect week. In recent days, Martin Terrier is on his little cloud. And the 25-year-old striker has reason to be happy, it must be said. After the defeat against Nantes last Wednesday, the only small shadow on the board of his week, he found a smile on Saturday following Rennes’ 2-0 success against Olympique de Marseille. Which still makes it possible to qualify for the next edition of the UEFA Champions League. The next day, Sunday, the native of Armentières was in Paris to participate in the UNFP Trophies.

A crazy season

Nominated for the title of best player of the season, a trophy won by Kylian Mbappé, the Rennes player was honored with a place in the typical XI for the 2021-22 financial year. With one day still to go, Martin Terrier has already had an exceptional year. Indeed, he found the net 21 times in all competitions, while delivering 5 assists. But the real victory for the former OL player is to have finally had the famous click. Talented in everyone’s opinion, he had often had a mental blockage.

What the main interested party himself acknowledged in mid-March at a press conference. “I feel good. I am satisfied with my progress. I feel that this season I have passed a course especially at the mental level. In terms of efficiency, I think it shows. The coach gives me a lot of freedom on the pitch. In terms of my movements, he really lets me go where I want. He often pushes me to take risks, which I lacked at the start of the season. He helped me a lot on that point.”. Bruno Genesio, who had already led him in Lyon, had an important role. The technician is proud of this development.

Terrier had the click

“His progress is what I hoped for. We never hid it with Florian (Mauritius), he is a striker who has all the modern qualities to be a great striker. Until now, he did not express his potential all the time, certainly because of a lack of confidence or because of mental blockages. He is maturing. He also comes at an age where it is the right age for a striker. He is 25 years old. He has experience. He lived through difficult situations“. But that is ancient history for the footballer born in 97, who continued his good week by being pre-selected for the next gathering of the France team.

The logical continuation for Terrier, dubbed by a certain Thierry Henry. “We have seen players go to the France team or to other selections by doing less than that. There are a lot of players in the squad, it’s not easy for DD (Didier Deschamps). Is it deserved? I would rather say that if he goes there, it would not be undeserved. There is a small difference. I really like this player. In any case, congratulations for what he is doing this season even if it is not over yet. The number of goals he scored, no one would have said that at the start of the season, even him..

Tottenham like him a lot

Well in his sneakers, the versatile striker is at the top of his game this season. Which logically caught the eye. The Italian press have revealed that Napoli have their eye on him. But the Partenopei are not the only ones. According to our information, Tottenham are very fond of Martin Terrier. A proposal was even sent to him. It remains to be seen now what will be the position of the Bretons, who can still play the C1 next year, as well as the player under contract until 2025. Asked about his future by Premium Videothe Frenchman made a small point.

“We will see how it goes at the end of the season but I am under contract until 2025. I am fulfilled here, I am happy to be here. What is certain is that it is a fantastic season from all points of view because we are having a lot of fun and producing good football. We beat eyes in terms of points, number of goals scored. These are good things and it is promising for the future ”. With a Terrier at this level, the result should be quite nice.
