Malcom: Young Brazilian Winger Who Steals Attention In Ligue 1 Over Neymar

Since moving from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar became the world’s most expensive player at an incredible price. He also performed impressively by scoring four goals and four assists from five Ligue 1 games.

However, he is not the only attacker Brazil who conquered Ligue 1. Football Whisper more interested in other Brazilian players, Malcom.

Compile goals and assist Malcol with Bordeaux

After impressing with Corinthians where he scored 10 goals from 73 matches, Malcol moved to Europe to join Bordeaux in January 2016 for 4.1 million pounds (about Rp73.8 billion).

Malcom sharp with Bordeaux

This winger proves he is able to take advantage of individual brilliance and looks like someone who will continue to improve toward the top level from week to week. Moreover, Malcom arrived in France at the age of 18 years.

Now he’s 20 years old, but of course it’s still relatively young and he’s showing maturity so he can be a force to reckon with. Prior to this season he has scored 11 goals in 58 games for Les Girondins.

This season he has scored three goals and three assists from four games in Ligue 1 with Bordeaux unbeaten like PSG in the league. The most impressive of his tally was against Lyon in August.

Malcolm goal kicks Malcolm against Lyon

When his team trailed 3-2 and the game was 90 minutes he scored a superb goal from outside the penalty box (23 yards) – the distance is almost the same as his first goal – thus making Lyon must be willing to share points. This is a typical goal that makes the audience stand up and say wow. The goal is a symbol of the performance of this season. The season is still long, but he is a matchwinner who can change the course of the game.

It could change its role this season. The possibility of Bordeaux manager Jocelyn Gourvennec gives him more freedom and creative duties charged to Valentin Vada – last season this task was at Malcolm.

Speed, vision, intelligent movement and finishing so far are clearly visible and he’s a deadly weapon on the front lines. Like what you would expect from a young Brazilian winger, Malcolm is able to play on the edge of the line and likes to fool the defender. His fast legs allow him to cheat defender-defender.

He became the subject of transfer rumors Liverpool and Manchester United last season, but there seems to be no real step from one of the Prermier League giants this summer. Concerned interest coming from Germany, Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg attempted to deteriorate this young Brazilian star, but Bordeaux rejected their offer including Wolfsburg’s £ 30m bid according to a RMC Sport report.

Malcol is more mature than his age

When asked about the rise of Malcolm, Gourvennec said: “You need to see him every day,” quoted from (22/9).

“He’s still fun and tempting to skuat like before.”

“He even became a translator for his new fellow Brazilian.”

“He is not at all affected by everything that is preached. Even though she’s very young she’s grown up. ”

His maturity makes him one of the most attractive prospecting players in France. Not surprisingly Bordeaux are interested in giving him a new contract. To RMC club president Stephane Martin the deal is almost reached.

Bordeaux has not played in European competition this season and his interest in Malcolm will continue to grow, no wonder he will be the hottest player of the summer next year even though he signed a new contract.

Players like Eden Hazard, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Benjamin Mendy and Alexandre Lacazette proved themselves in France before moving on to the Premier League. If his performance is consistent like this, he may be a great success player. (Source:
