Mathieu Debuchy has only been at Bordeaux on loan for five minutes but he’s already made his first appearance against Lyon in Ligue 1.
Unfortunately for the right-back, who got 80 minutes on the pitch, his new loan team lost 3-0…
Despite this, the Bordeaux fans on Twitter appear to be reasonably happy with their new signing, saying that although he’s not quite there physically after not playing properly for so long, he’s a leader.

It’s reassuring that Bordeaux clearly rate the defender enough that they’ve already played him and if his performance was a little lacklustre, this is completely normal for someone in his position. The fact he even managed 80 minutes is admirable to be quite honest.
Hopefully he continues to see plenty of game time so he can fulfill his dream of getting picked for Euro 2016 in France.
On another somewhat amusing note, it looks as if Debuchy translates to ‘Davie’.
