L'Equipe also says Marco Verratti touched by "genius" and that his passes might one day be "taught at an École des Beaux-Arts".

Of all PSG’s recent big-money signings, perhaps the most shrewd was Marco Verratti.
The Parisian giants reportedly paid 12 million euros for Verratti who has turned into a key player for the Ligue 1 leaders.
On Tuesday night, whilst Zlatan Ibrahimovic took all the plaudits with an excellent display, including a wonder striker and two goals, Verratti set the tone.
Statistically, Verratti ended the game with 1 assist and having played 102 passes at a 95% completion rate.
French newspaper L’Equipe were positively salivating over Verratti’s display – see Tweet above and the GIF below is just class personified!
