« I discovered Martin Terrier last season with Lille and I continued to follow him with Strasbourg this season, but especially with the France U21 team, with whom he has been particularly successful. He is an attacker with an interesting versatility and a knowledge of the game that is quite rare. He does everything right. He is powerful, fast, very comfortable technically and very skillful in front of goal. »
