Wahbi Khazri is settling in well to his new role with the Girondins. We caught up with the midfielder to discuss the importance of pre-season and the current atmosphere in the squad. Wahbi know these preparations will have a crucial impact on the Girondins' season.
The Girondins were narrowly beaten by Shakhtar Donetsk last night in their latest pre-season game. They lost out to a Ukrainian side who were more physically robust and pragmatic in the first half. Bordeaux displayed great energy and creativity, but to no avail.
In the first of their pre-season warm-up matches, and the first game under new manager Will Sagnol, the Girondins beat OGC Nice 2-0. Thomas Touré (22’) and Hadi Sacko (79’ pen.) got the goals. A victory which bodes well for the new season.
Willy Sagnol has revealed the list of 26 players who will travel to the pre-season training camp, and play in the first friendly against Nice.
While the squad has been boosted by the arrival of a wave of young talent, at 32 Marc Planus is a club legend with a decisive role to play. He speaks exclusively to girondins.com about his pre-season preparation, the new coaching staff, his role at the club and the changes in defence.
