“After Ghent, I felt it was time for me to take another leap, Ligue 1 is a tougher league than in Belgium, and it was not easy because I had just arrived there,”Kalu added.

“The coach who wanted me (Gustavo Poyet) was sacked, I told myself that I had to work twice more to prove my value to the new coach . Ricardo is a very good coach, when he wants something from you, he comes to talk to you.

“I really feel very good in Bordeaux, it’s like a big family, everyone is talking to each other .We joke a lot, I learn French. Bordeaux is a stage, and when I leave, I want to be able to say that I was a great player. “
