“Just that experience of playing against that sort of player is good for me.”
Asked about his close contact with Neymar in their last match, Panzo responded:
“I'm not quite sure [what he was doing]. I was coming into the box and he just hugged me.
“I said to him, 'What are you doing?' He just started laughing. It was a friendly hug… he was defending against me, but I think he was just joking around.”
Panzo is optimistic about his future atDijon
as he is playing under a three-year contract.
“It's going well, I've got some games under my belt.
“Dijon are a great club, fighting to stay up in Ligue 1. I wanted to help them and get some game time as well.
“I think I'm getting used to a lot of changes, there were a lot of changes at Monaco too. You have to adapt, keep pushing, and work hard to stay in the team.”
