The Mexican from Napoli is among the wingers who receive the most fouls in the world, only behind Mattia Zaccagni and Neymar
Hirving Lozano is the third winger who receives the most fouls among the main leagues in Europe. According to an analysis of BeSoccer, ‘Chucky’, who plays for Napoli in Serie A, only occupies this place behind Mattia Zaccagni, from Hellas Verona, and Neymar, from PSG.
The Mexican, who normally plays on the right in Gennaro Gattuso’s team, averages less than eight dribbles per game and receives 3.3 fouls, a situation that is noticeable in each game of the Neapolitans, because due to his speed and ability, he is one of the main creators of the offensive game in the ‘Rino’ team.
Although Lozano missed a month of activity due to an injury he suffered in February against Juventus, The national team has remained one of the best players of the season and although it is just regaining its level, it continues to face defenders whenever it has a chance.
The second most fouled player is Hellas Verona’s Mattia Zaccagni, who averages just over eight irrigated per game and receives 3.5 fouls; However, Neymar is on another sideboard, and it is that the Brazilian of PSG dribbles more than 16 times per game and reaps almost 4.7 fouls per game, which puts him very far from the rest of the wingers in the big leagues of the Old Continent.
The methodology of BeSoccer took into account the wingers with at least 900 minutes of play and the statistics were represented by 90 minutes, as long as they were greater than zero. In the graph they shared, Adama Traoré, from Wolverhampton, is one of the most successful dribblers without receiving contact, a situation that may be due to his physical strength.
The Spaniard does around 13 dribbles per game and receives fewer than three foul contacts. Afterwards, Kylian Mbappé, Neymar’s teammate at PSG, is the best dribbler, since he dribbles 11 per owner and receives just 1.5 fouls, this due to his speed and ability, which makes him very elusive.
On the other hand, Lionel Messi comes out on the chart and averages almost 11 dribbles per game and 2.5 fouls per game. Ahead of the Argentine in fouls received are Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin with almost 11 dribbles per game and nearly 2.7 fouls, as well as Huesca’s Javier Ontiveros, who faces almost 11 times per game and receives 3.1 fouls.
