The 23-year-old might truly be a weapon in the box, but there is nothing he likes more as a defender than helping his squad get a clean sheet.
”If you score a goal as a defender, that’s great, but of course you also want to keep a clean sheet too, which was important. We did very well as a team. We were good in the press and we were relentless. That’s how you score seven goals,” De Ligt told FCBayern.com (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).
When moving to Bayern Munich, de Ligt commented that he wanted to play with a club that had more of an offensive philosophy and what many ascertained to mean a more fun brand of football.
This season, it appears De Ligt wish has come true.
