Whether Bordeaux is with Sochaux (1st) and Le Havre (2nd) the best defense in Ligue 2 with 5 goals conceded in 9 daysthe club at the scapular can do better in attack. The formation of David Guion has not yet registered only 13 goals and sits 7th best attack in Ligue 2. Rather a total medium for Girondins who have weapons to hurt in front.

With the arrival in early September ofAliou Badji, loaned for a season by AmiensBordeaux has recruited a strong offensive asset to complete its workforce. The Senegalese striker knows Ligue 2 well for having scored 13 goals and delivered 3 assists in 26 days under the colors of Amiens during the previous exercise. However, this arrival raises some questions about the entertainment to be set up in front for David Guion.

“There is a balance that must be respected.”

During an interview given to France Blue Gironde, David Guion returned to the question of an Aliou Badji – Josh Maja duo at the forefront of the Bordeaux attack : “It’s true that we want to see Aliou Badji with Josh Maja, me first, there is a balance that must be respected. It is also necessary to have weapons during the match. It can be a weapon because it can bring a lot of impact, but it also means that the two midfielders must be different from what we have.

The trainer of 54 years old has in particular explained the difficulties of setting up a system with two attackers : “when you want to play with two centre-forwards and two wingers, I need two or even three boys on the bench to be able to make an impact afterwards. Today we may not have all the quantity to impact as much as that.

Aliou Badji has so far only come into play at the end of the matches in the matches against Saint-Étienne and against Dijon. Against the DFCO, Badji has already been able to help his new team by delivering his first assist on the fantastic winning goal of Zuriko Davitashvili in the 87th minute. If the duo Badji Maja does not have for the moment not been tenuredthe Bordeaux coach made it clear that this could happen if we find the optimal way to make them evolve together : “It’s something we have to work on because indeed, we want to see Aliou Badji with Josh Maja.” Especially since the Senegalese striker had recently declared that he enjoyed playing with 2 attackers.
