You do not know yet Philippe Sandler, the one who will have to be the new defensive leader against the Standard in the absence of Kompany? He confides in a long monologue.
He is the last of the Mohicans. Between injuries and the many starts in this position (8 this summer counting Milic!), Philippe Sandler is the only central training defender available for Sunday's Clasico. For the first time, he will have to do without Vincent Kompany next to him. Against Standard, the 22-year-old Dutchman will have to be the leader of the last row.
Suffice to say that it is time to get to know this player that Manchester City has recruited in a small club in the Netherlands for 2.5 million after only 30 appearances in the pros. A monologue in 7 points, like the 7 letters of his family name of South African origin.
Standard: "We still need time"
