‘Matheus makes it look easy’ - Gibbs

Kieran Gibbs believes team-mate Matheus Pereira has the envious knack of making the beautiful game “look so easy”.

The Brazilian, who joined on loan from Portuguese giants Sporting CP in the summer, has been one of the stand-out performers in the Sky Bet Championship having bagged four goals and assisted a further seven.

Pereira, not for the first time this season, left Albion fans and players in awe after producing an exceptional free-kick during Wednesday’s blistering win against Bristol City at The Hawthorns.

And Gibbs says the calculation is quite simple. If you like watching football, you’ll love watching Matheus.

“He is just one those players who make the game look so, so easy,” said the Baggies number three.

“Football is not easy, but he seems to have a unique way of just gliding across the pitch.

“He is so low to the ground and so difficult to dispossess.

“He’s literally your worst nightmare to play against.

“If you like football, then you like Matheus. It really is as simple as that.

“He’s technically excellent and you have seen how important he is to this team and the quality he brings.

“It’s great to play with him and I’m sure he will continue to deliver goals and assists throughout the campaign.”
