Yep, he's definitely one of the elite sprinters in world football.
Of the three options Deulofeu, Sarr and Hyde. Clearly we are more likely to field Weller, Hill, and Hubble next season.
Probably not Sane, though he strikes me as pretty quick.
Nope, Vardy is nowhere near as quick as Traore, or Sarr. Maybe a couple of years ago he'd have been close, but definitely not now.
Mbappe is right up there. Aubamayang too but I think he's lost just a tiny bit now that he's getting a little older.
Sarr not even in the top 10:
Doubt many would have picked Fred and Shane Long!
Actually I did think Shane Long was known for being very quick, but I agree about Fred and some of the others.
I also think , when it comes to footballers, there are two types of 'quick'. One is the sort you might see with someone like Sarr when they break clear of the defence and you can see them outpace opponents. The other is acceleration over a very short distance, no more than a few yards, giving a player just enough advantage to perhaps get a shot away before a tackle comes in. You can see the difference in these two even in top quality sprinters where some are faster starters but others make up more ground after they get into their stride.
Was he actually looked at though?
I assume it’s just derived from the tracking equipment they all wear?
Maybe! But Sarr didn't play at the start of the season. Greenwood is on there though, and I'm not sure when he started getting picked.
I don't know who makes these things but they seem almost always to be complete and utter b*llocks.
Foden is not a sprinter (and neither are Fred and Soyuncu). I'd bet my life on Sarr absolutely leaving him in the dust in a race, as would Salah, Mane, Pulisic and multiple others who aren't on the list either.
