Umar Sadiq technically better than El Bilal Touré – Garcia


Coach of Stade de Reims Óscar García has warned Almeria fans that they should not expect El Bilal Touré to immediately fill the shoes of departed Forward, Umar Sadiq.

Sadiq was sold to Real Sociedad for €20 million on deadline day and Almeria brought in 20 year-old Mali International El Bilal Touré from Stade De Reims as replacement.

In an interview with La Voz de Almeria, Garcia claims that there are similarities to how the Nigerian and El Bilal Touré play but the former is technically better.

The Coach also revealed that the Mali striker has the quality to eventually excel at Almeria.

‘Yes, they are similar and both are very fast. Both are very dangerous in space; Bilal Touré has a better aerial game than Umar Sadiq, but the Nigerian, technically today, is better.”

Sadiq scored 43 goals and 19 assists in 84 matches for Almeria.
