Bordeaux have named Super Eagles striker Josh Maja as the clubs top scorer for the 2019/2020 Season,
after football in France was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The 21-year-old recorded eight goals in 24 appearances to win the award despite having the same number of goals with the duo of Jimmy Briand and Nicolas De Préville.
Josh Maja won the accolades base on an impressive goal scoring ratio of 113 minutes per goal.
According to statement from the club’s official website, Maja was the most prolific of the three after scoring a goal every 113 minutes.
“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).”
The young Nigerian striker stole the the show as he grabbed the headlines in December after scoring his first career hattrick in Bordeaux’s 6-1 humiliation of Nîmes Olympique.
Maja’s impressive outing with Bordeaux has earned him a debut appearance with the National team coming on as a seconds half substitute in the 2-2 Friendly draw with Ukraine last September.
