Girondins of Bordeaux manager, Eric Bedouet has lauded man of the match, Samuel Kalu after his sparkling display that helped Bordeaux secure a nervy 1-0 win over Dijon in a French Ligue 1 game on Sunday, reports Completesports.com.
While Bedouet was bemused by his side’s failure to kill off their opponents in the keenly contested game, the performance of Kalu drew special mention.
Kalu provided the assist for Andreas Cornelius to score in the 77th minute of the game which secured Bordeaux the vital three points and a move up to 10th position in the league table.
The 21-year-old has had a hand in his team’s last four goals (scoring three goals and providing one assist).
“He’s doing us a lot of good right now after we worked a lot with him to make the right choices, individual or collective in the final third,” 20minutes.fr quoted Bedouet as saying of Kalu’s showing.
“He is still a young player who is learning. He’s a little behind in terms of language as he speaks mostly English but he integrates well with the squad.
“He also laughs a lot at what he understands. He is really a very good person.”
Bordeaux’s veteran striker, Jimmy Briand, also praises for the Nigerian international and adds that once his skills are polished he will move on.
“He is really doing us a lot of good right now. He’s still a young player who learns very well,” Briand told 20minutes.fr.
“Indeed, the margin of progression of Samuel Kalu seems huge at only 21 years because it is still a player who spoils many of his actions because of bad choices.”
“The day he settles this, he should not stay long at the Girondins de Bordeaux.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
