Very humble, Youssouph Badji is not yet on the point of catching the big head… despite a satisfactory start to the season in his first season with FC Bruges.
Youssouph Badji is the only Club Brugge striker to have played the first four games of the season. He joined his compatriot Krépin Diatta at the top of the internal scorers ranking and happily assumed his pivotal role. Despite his contribution so important, the young Senegalese wants to be modest.
“Don’t give me compliments”
“I am very happy to have brought the team out of a difficult situation. I may have played my most successful game of the season. Because the collective helped me. Do not shower me with compliments and do not make me an ‘attack leader’. It’s too early. Let me do my scales. I am here to listen, to learn, ”he said.
His coach wants to be careful with the young player
His trainer Philippe Clement also remains cautious: “Badji is a real talent. But he is only 18 years old. I have to make sure I use it wisely. Don’t burn it. I have to find the right balance with him as with Charles De Ketelaere. ”
