'Nigerian Mbappe' Gets First Chance To Make Bordeaux Debut Against Paris Saint-GermainPublished: February 09, 2019
Former Sunderland striker Josh Maja is in line to make his competitive debut for Bordeaux when they take on Paris Saint-Germain at the iconic Parc des Princes on Saturday evening.
The 20-year-old was named in the provisional squad list ahead of Bordeaux trip to the French capital but there is no place in the team for Nigeria national-teamer Samuel Kalu who has been suspended after he was red carded against Marseille on Tuesday, February 5.
Since an under-the-radar transfer to The Girondins on January 26, Maja was not summoned for the two games against Strasbourg and Ligue 1 tie at Marseille.
The former Super Eagles invitee has a habit of imitating his idol Kylian Mbappe when he gets on the scoresheet during his time with Sunderland.
Maja netted 16 goals from 30 appearances for the League One promotion-chasers before heading to France to join his new employer.
If Maja make his debut against PSG, he will become the fourth Nigerian player to appear for Bordeaux in the 21st century, following in the footsteps of Kalu Uche, Tiago Ilori and Samuel Kalu.
