Bordeaux sensation Josh Maja silencing Critics


Super Eagles striker Josh Maja has been in scintillating form and was again on target as Bordeaux saw off Laval to claim all three points in a Ligue 2 match on Monday night.

Bordeaux are top of the Ligue 2 on 20 points thanks to a Maja Inspired victory against Laval.

The Nigerian had a slow start to the campaign which saw fans question his commitment to the club after they were relegated to the French second division, but 6 league goals in ten appearances this season seems to have silenced some of his critics.

Just five minutes into the game Maja received a short pass from a corner kick and sent a low drive into the net to open the scoring.

Although it took them a while to respond, Laval did equalize, scoring in the second half through Maggiotti.

But the scorelines didn’t remain the same for long, and substitute Alberth Ellis’ goal, just after 5 minutes of his introduction, bagged all three points and sent Bordeaux on the path to Ligue 1 promotion.
