Bulka’s moment

Christophe Galtier hinted at it at the beginning of December. Thierry Oleksiak confirmed this Friday in front of the press: Marcin Bulka will be in the starting line-up at Cholet, during the round of 32 of the French Cup (kick-off Sunday at 18:20).

« We have total confidence in him.»

"Marcin will play." With these words, the assistant coach of the Rouge et Noir squad, who replaced Christophe Galtier - absent for family reasons - in front of the media, confirmed that the Pole would be in Nice goal against Cholet. This is a first for the 22-year-old goalkeeper, who was loaned out by PSG at the start of the season. “The goalkeepers always train very hard," added Thierry Oleksiak. “The only difference is that we are preparing Marcin for competitive action, especially in a special match. We have full confidence in him. We haven't seen him in action yet, so this is a great opportunity. It's up to him to show what he can do.”

Coach Oleksiak also said that apart from Robson Bambu (who has had ankle surgery and is unavailable until February), all Les Aiglons are fit for action. "I don't have any negative feelings about fatigue or weariness. Our team is holding its own athletically. We are finishing games rather well. We have all the competitive players with playing time. If there is rotation, it will be with competitive players.”
