“But where does this guy come from?
The words came naturally from a Luis Enrique who, after the surprise elimination of his team against a valiant Morocco (0-0, 3-0 pens), did not have much to say anyway. other thing to do than applaud the opposing performance.
In this case, the little phrase came to underline the performance of a player in particular: Azzedine Ounahi.

Tireless in defensive pressing with his fellow midfielder Sofyan Amrabat, also impressive, the midfielder of SCO Angers has drawn praise from the former Barça coach.
“Which opposing player impressed me?
Number 8, I'm sorry I can't remember his name.
My god, where is this boy from?
He played very well.
Hakimi, Ziyech, En-Nesyri, Amrabat too, but him!
What a way to run, he must be exhausted!
About the performance of his team, he expresses only one regret... and it concerns the Parisian striker Pablo Sarabia, who entered at the very end of extra time and who, like Carlos Soler and Sergio Busquets, missed his penalty.
Despite this, this is not what Luis Enrique retains.
“I have no complaints about the players.
I only have one regret for one player, which is Pablo Sarabia.
I brought him in to take a penalty and he gave me two more chances.
It was a mistake, he showed me he deserved more minutes.
