Ligue 1's top scorer could bid farewell to the championship

Jonathan David already on the move?

But this season, after 19 disputed days, the Parisian is not number one in this category. Another player overshadows him and threatens the hegemony of the striker of the French team.

This is Jonathan David, the iron spearhead of the Lille attack which culminated in 11 achievements.

Gourvennec’s reaction

Currently eighth in Ligue 1, the reigning French champion is struggling to regain his superb from last year . Fortunately, Jonathan David manages to get his head out of the water and save the furniture. Jocelyn Gourvennec, the Dogues coach spoke about this at a press conference, after the 3-2 success on the Bordeaux field where the player of 21 years offered the winning goal at the end of the match.

I don’t know his agent. He starts from a long way, mentioning this in mid-December. It is a file that the president will manage and manage well. I think we should not disturb Jonathan. He doesn’t need that, he’s good in his sneakers. His agent must also be careful not to put things in his mind, sometimes it upsets the players. We have already seen some and we will see others. It remains to be seen whether the international Canadian will decide whether or not to stay in Lille.
