The ordeal continues for Jonathan David.
Arrived this summer in the North, the most expensive recruit in the history of Losc looks more and more like a big fiasco.
After ten games, the 20-year-old Canadian has still not scored a single goal in his new colors.
Thursday in the Europa League against Celtic (2-2), the striker finally thought to unlock his counter after obtaining a penalty.
But David missed his peno and extended his period of doubt.
“He has the merit of having created the penalty.
I have no complaints with him seeing him shoot but unfortunately he was pushed back.
It'll add extra pressure to him.
We will accompany him, we will help him.
He is obviously disappointed not to have scored but happy that the team was able to react to get this good draw, ”assures Christophe Galtier, Losc coach.
Galtier convinced that David will end up scoring
If he missed a peno, David showed himself in the game but his long period of ineffectiveness began to weigh.
“He was interesting in his catch, in his movements.
But a striker, he is asked to score goals.
If he had scored his penalty, he would have had a good period ", assures Galtier convinced that his player" will score ".
The sooner the better, because David has already lost a lot of time.
