Author of the winning goal for OL against AS Monaco (3-2), Malick Fofana was also the fastest player in this match.

Flashed at 35.13km/h, Malick Breathing achieved the fastest sprint of the match. Once again decisive against AS Monaco (3-2)the 18-year-old rocket did not tremble when it was necessary to deceive Radosław Majecki (84th). Entering the game in the 66th minute, the Belgian hopeful scored the winning goal following a spectacular raid, well launched by Alexandre Lacazette. Malick Breathing proves over the course of the meetings (scorer against the FC Nantes.77th) its legitimacy to appear on the match sheet prepared by Pierre Sage.

With only 3 tenures, the former The Ghent preferred to let work speak rather than frustration. The native of Aalst in Belgium appears to be in a hurry on the pitch, but off it, patience takes place. An attitude that does not displease the Lyon technician. “I am very happy with his progress. He is a young man who does not make noise, he comes to work and progress, Pierre declared Sage after the meeting. He is patient with his playing time. His rewards become regular, because there is work that precedes this success.”

But as in any workforce, there is competition. Although author of average performances, Ernest Nuamah currently has the upper hand over Malick Breathing in order to secure the right winger position. With only 3 goals and 2 assists in 29 matches, the Ghana international’s place in the eleven could however be questioning. But in reality, it’s not that simple.

After his good start against the FC Nantes (3-1), Malick Fofana had been lined up from the start facing the Brest Stadium (4-3). But the winger failed to shine. He notably lacked presence in the game, but above all physical impact. The 18-year-old from Rhodan is currently acting as a supersub. A role that works well for him, but to aspire to a more important status, he will need to solidify himself further. For now, Malick Breathing is content to play dynamite off the bench and it works quite well.
