The Tunisian striker of Saint-Etienne Wahbi Khazri was the great architect of the great victory of the Greens against Bordeaux (4-1), thanks to a nice hat-trick, this Sunday during the 32nd day of Ligue 1. The former Girondin , who was not always a first choice for Claude Puel this season, recalled that he still had a good level in the French championship.
We found a great Wahbi Khazri. Already a scorer in Angers (1-0) and Nîmes (2-0), the Saint-Etienne striker offered himself a hat-trick, the first of his career, against Bordeaux this Sunday during the 32nd day of the League 1. A performance that allowed the Greens to outclass (4-1) Girondins in total distress for two months. At 30, the Tunisian international is coming back strong after crossing the desert.
When it is slipped to him that he is once again the providential man of the Greens, the person concerned can not help but smile. “I have never been a bad player, he remarks to reporters. It is not because I was not playing that I was not good. I am trusted. When I am trusted, It’s generally not going too badly. I’m not a bad Ligue 1 player. I’ve been in this league for about ten years and have been performing well. It’s up to me to continue, to have fun. me to continue, not to ignite. I savor. It is not necessarily an easy season for me. “
The beautiful homage of Gasset
On the reasons for this change of status in the eyes of his coach Claude Puel, he who often waxed the bench a few weeks ago, Wahbi Kahzri does not want to spread out or settle accounts: “I have not changed anything in my preparation, in my training, I did not play for reasons… As soon as I am made to play, I try to bring my freshness and be efficient “.
And too bad for Bordeaux, victim of its efficiency. Even his ex-coach, Jean-Louis Gasset, in the opposite camp this Sunday, praised his performance. “Well done to Wahbi Khazri. I know a lot of ink was spilled when I said he was the player I wanted. Today, life is hard because he is the one who puts us a hat. trick. But bravo to him, ”concludes the Bordeaux coach with a smile.
