Nicollin rates Menez highly

By Football News



Montpellier chairman Louis Nicollin says he would love to have Paris Saint-Germain's Jeremy Menez at his club.

Nicollin helped bankroll Montpellier's surprise Ligue 1 title last season and he explained that he gets very excited when he watches Menez on the ball.

The France international has been in impressive form for Les Parisiens in their rise to the top of the Ligue 1 table and Nicollin revealed that he has great admiration for the former Roma playmaker after watching him in the two sides' 1-1 draw on Sunday.

"In Menez's case, I would do anything to bring him to Montpellier," he told Luis Attaque.

"He is very strong. Every time he attacked, I felt like I was eight years old again."

The winger has scored four goals for Carlo Ancelotti's team this season, including two in the Champions League as the French side look to join Porto in qualifying for the knockout stages from Group A.
