Like the Girondins de Bordeaux, Benoit Costil Currently going through a bad patch in Ligue 1 with twenty goals conceded in nine games. But the Bordeaux goalkeeper received unexpected support from Ludovic Giully.
Bordeaux: Ludovic Giuly defends Benoit Costil
Despite the changes recorded during this summer transfer window, the Girondins de Bordeaux have made a disappointing start to the season in Ligue 1. 16th in the championship after nine days, the Aquitaine club has already conceded 20 goals. A carrying average has more than 2 goals taken per game for Benoit Costil. The goalkeeper is also singled out by some observers. But the porter of the Girondins de Bordeaux can count on the support of Ludovic Giuly.
In comments reported by Girondins4ever, the former international tricolor gave his opinion on the poor form of the goalkeeper of the Girondins de Bordeaux. To pay Ludovic Giully, these criticisms are simply unfair because Benoit Costil is “A great guardian” behind a porous defense. “He’s a great goalkeeper, he makes important saves, but he’s far too exposed at the start of the Girondins’ season. We know he’s a very great goalkeeper, ”he said.
Costil preferred to Mandanda, it is “logical”!
Ludovic Giully ensure that “It’s up to the Bordeaux coach and his defense to find the best solutions to protect a little more”. And if Benoit Costil is less efficient in Bordeaux goals this season, the former FC Barcelona player believes that his summons to the France team is deserved.
“There is also competition in the French team. He’s made a big start to the season, Steve Mandanda plays less so his call makes sense ”, added Ludovic Giuly. And the former Monegasque is not mistaken because Benoit Costil is the third best goalkeeper in Ligue 1 by number of saves (30). It is this consistency in front of goals that convinced Didier Deschamps to summon him to the Blues for the final phase of the League of Nations.
