Lama: Sirigu will never be a PSG great
Former Paris Saint-Germain and France goalkeeper Bernard Lama believes that current PSG No. 1 Salvatore Sirigu will ''never be a great goalkeeper".
Lama, who played more than 300 games for Les Parisiens across two spells and won the Cup Winners' Cup with them in 1996, said that Italy international Sirigu has many limitations.
''He is good, he makes saves on his goal-line," Lama told But. "But there is a problem, he never catches the ball. A goalkeeper who always pushes the ball away, that's a goalkeeper who'll be beaten. "He also lacks too much in the air, with his feet. He is a good goalkeeper, no more. He'll never be a great goalkeeper, except in size [the former Palermo keeper is 6' 3'']. To become great, you need to move well, go out of the box, play with feet. And he doesn't know to do that."
Lama's comments are at odds with Sirigu's record this season. League leaders PSG have only conceded five goals in Ligue 1 so far, and two of those were in the one domestic match the Italian has missed this term, a 2-2 draw with Lorient.
