In devastating form on the pitch at present, the dynamic duo comprising Remy and Valbuena shouldn't hide the collective improvement OM are making, according to coach Didier Deschamps: "We talk about those two because they're making the difference, but you can't speak about them without the rest of the team which is also performing. The main thing is that the whole squad continues to produce."
As for the complementarity of the two - it's a bonus for the coach: "That players can get along off the pitch can't be a bad thing. But I've also seen players who couldn't stand the sight of each other off a football pitch, but played like brothers on it. The important thing is that it works out on the pitch."
