Ligue 1 – Girondins de Bordeaux: Sékou Mara, the only clearing in the gloom
It’s the only thinning of the moment in the Girondins: Sékou Mara! The young Bordeaux striker scored again this weekend in Angers (1-4), his third goal in the last five games. He is the only one today to do the job in this team completely in distress. When you say that about a 19-year-old kid, it gives you a bit of an idea of the level of the others.
As a reminder, Sékou Mara is none other than the son of TF1 star journalist Audrey Crespo-Mara and he is above all a pure product of the Girondins training center which he joined at the age of 15. A well-made kid that you can’t miss with his blond dreadlocks. He has now been around the professional group for a year and a half and the least we can do is that he confirms his potential with each match. Coming into play on many occasions this season, he scored four goals. Above all, he has become one of the darlings of the Bordeaux public thanks to his constant combativeness.
He could quickly become one of the symbols of the club’s reconstruction even if today he is not yet a potential starter, which is what drives the fans to despair. Sékou Mara extended his contract with the club until 2025 last March. But, we will have to sell him a great project and above all build the team around him if the Girondins find themselves in Ligue 2 in a few days. The young striker is indeed followed by many Ligue 1 clubs and some will not hesitate to put a nice check on the table to recover it in the event of the club’s descent.
