Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman praises his countrymate, Mike Maignan (goalkeeper of the French national football team and AC Milan). Recently, in an interview, Coman said,
“I’ve no doubts. For me, Mike Maignan is great, the best goalkeeper in the world.”
To be honest, he is not wrong. In the last five matches that Maignan has played, he has only conceded one goal with more than 11 saves. In the last encounter with the Netherlands in the UEFA Euro Qualifiers, he was the star of the match. He saved more than three goals for his national side and helped them qualify for the UEFA Euro Cup.
Maignan has been the France football team’s first-choice goalkeeper in recent times. Similarly, for his national side, he has only conceded two goals in the last five matches with more than 10 saves. In the absence of Hugo Lloris, he has optimized every opportunity he has.
Well, Lloris is set to be completely match-fit after January, and wearing the national team jersey is quite questionable. Till then, let’s wait and enjoy the magical run of Mike Maignan.
In case you missed: “I Love this club since I was a kid,” says Arsenal’s striker Eddie Nketiah
