Ghanaian Star - Alexander Djiku Scored to Emerge as Best Defender Against Stade de Reims

Decided to stay at RC Strasbourg after several links away from the club this summer, Ghanaian defender Alexander Djiku showed the French outfit what they could have missed in their defence force this season.

A regular starter at the club in his fourth season, the 28-year-old was his team's shining knight in today's league game when they welcomed Stade de Reims at the Stade de la Meinau which ended in a draw [1-1].

Made his third start of the season, Djiku placed his side in a winning momentum with a brilliant finish off a corner set-up before halftime which was then cancelled by Folarin Balogun in the 81st minute in a very disappointing moment as they aim at their first win of the season.

The only Ghanaian player featured for both sides, he played with sentiments, maturity along with good defending techniques to record their second positive result this season after a 2-1 loss to AS Monaco in the opening game.

A big deal in defence, he was rated as the third best player to teammate Adrien Thomasso and Folarin Balogun at 7.4 and the best defender.

His statistics at the end of the match account for -one goal, 3 clearances, 82.4% pass accuracy, 8 successful long balls, 2 shots on goal and the most touches of 82.
