We didn't saw him that fast on ball. Mostly fast quick change of movement or directions, but not long fast run on ball.
My reasoning was that he isn't particulary fast off the ball (probably his TS could even be a tiny bit lower?) but I don't notice a big loss of speed when he's on the ball, it's mostly based on what I've seen recently though. It's a bit similar, movement-wise, to a player like Isco for example (which I believe is/should be mid 80s). I didn't watch him much when he was at Newcastle, unfortunately.
What are your views regarding his St-Etienne days?
Everyone knew it was impossible. Then came along a fool who didn't know it, and he did it.
