Josh Maja Commits to Bordeaux


Josh Maja’s 11th goal of the league season wasn’t enough to help Bordeaux earn a point at home against Amiens SC at the weekend in Ligue 2.

Maja put his side ahead from the penalty spot in the 42nd minute, but the visitors responded late on through George Ilenikhena (90+2′).

The sides eventually settle for a point apiece, with Bordeaux falling behind league leaders, Le Havre by nine points.

Reacting to the result, and his performance, Maja rejects the idea of picking his goal record over helping the team gain promotion.

“I feel good. It’s not my best feeling because we drew in the last game,” the 24 year-old Forward stressed. “I scored, but we need to be better in terms of results.

“Being top scorer, no, that’s not my goal. I have a goal. It’s to go back to Ligue 1. If that happens, if I have to be top scorer in the championship, it will be a good thing.

“But the most important thing is the team and winning matches,” the Nigerian striker told
