Arriving at OL just a month ago, Nicolás Tagliafico wasted no time. In the space of three games, the Argentine full-back has shown why Ajax fans love him.

In case some doubted his strength of character, on Friday he showed all his potential against Troyes. In the space of about ten minutes between two periods, Nicolás Tagliafico experienced the roller coaster. Initially quite comfortable during the first half hour with a particularly good save after a Trojan overflow on the right side of the defence, the Argentine left-back began to hesitate almost on his own. By missing a header from Rémy Riou when the danger was far away, Tagliafico began this famous period of crisis in a controlled match so beloved by theOL for a few seasons.

And then, no matter how much he took his head in his hands, his late intervention cost a penalty and a Trojan draw, less than ten minutes before the break. How could Peter have repented? the forest, Nicolás Tagliafico was finally like his team with a double face. After the decline at the end of the first half, it was a completely different player who appeared before the public at Parc OL. The one who seduced the Dutch coach and Bruno Cheyru to make it the backup left over after the Tyrell folder fails malacia. Full of desire, hard on the man and a true electric battery, the Argentine international lived the second half at a hundred miles per hour.

Still perfectible as OL

We were talking about his strength of character on the front lines, furiously pushing the ball into Gauthier’s goal Gallon two minutes into the second half, Tagliafico erased his ball of dough and plunged the public into intoxication. As if that were not enough, his aggressiveness allowed him to recover the high ball a few seconds later to lead to Tetê’s 3-1 goal. The penalty awarded was just a distant memory. “When you change clubs, there are new things, new teammates… so I work giving my best for the group. (About his goal) I’m very happy, but obviously happier with the team’s victory,” he savored. We have to keep working, growing and progressing.”

Arrived just a month ago, the first Ajax has already adapted to his new environment although he considers “Not yet 100% physically”. His relationship with Karl toko ekambilittle in his favor since the beginning of the season, he is yet to be perfected and he is the first to concede it, considering that in “Changing clubs, there are new things, new teammates… so I work giving my best for the group”. And that was what won over his new teammates and the Lyon crowd. If some might have doubts about the hiring of the winner of the Copa América 2021, Tagliaficostill in full development, he only needed three games to prove what he was recruited for. “At Ajax, Tagliafico was adored by the fans because he is a coward, who does not hesitate to get in touch. described for us Tom Roefekamp, Dutch journalist for Voetbalzone. And they “hated” him at the same time because that “grinta” sometimes gets out of control, which earned him many yellow cards (38 in 4 years).

A character player

Arriving on tiptoe in Lyon, in particular because of the language barrier, the winger quickly found the right cursor to speak the universal language that is football. It is said that he is more defensive than Malo. taste ? His goal like a fox from the surfaces and his twenty balls touched in the opposing 30 meters showed that he was not ashamed with his feet. Perhaps a little too fiery for the French championship, as the penalty was conceded, the Rafael Calzada native will surely have to progress in this area in order not to find himself suspended every three games. But this famous grinta sold by Ajax supporters was no lie.

the cry of joy Tagliafico and alexander Lacazette about the Argentine’s goal is loaded with meaning. with the ArgentineOL He has found a player of character and it is not to dislike. When the Lyon club missed out last season, the summer signing appears to have been partly focused on this point. He has only been there for a month but Nicolás Tagliafico has already found his place. It is up to him to confirm the improvement over time.
