Super Eagles forward Josh Maja, has emerged Bordeaux highest goalscorer in the 2018/19 season after football in France was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Bordeaux took to the club’s website to announce Maja as the highest goalscorer in all competitions with eight goals.
“Three Bordeaux players have the same number of goals on the podium! Josh Maja, Jimmy Briand and Nicolas De Préville have all scored eight times this season. First place, however, goes to the English striker (Maja),” the club said.
“Indeed, the former Sunderland player has played less. He has a goal ratio every 113 minutes. A better result than Jimmy Briand (1 goal / 222 minutes) and Nicolas De Préville (1 goal / 281 minutes).”
Football will not resume in France, unlike other countries in Europe, after the country’s Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, suspended all elite sporting activities until September.
Maja’s form in Bordeaux earned him a call-up to the Eagles from coach Gernot Rohr for his debut and only game coming up in the 2-2 draw with Ukraine September 10, 2019.
