Girondins de Bordeaux coach Paulo Sousa has disclosed the reason behind Enock Kwateng substitution during their 2-1 win against FC Metz on Saturday.
Kwateng has been impressive since returning from a long break in the wake of his brother’s death.
The 22-year-old has however completed only one game out of the four matches he’s played since being reinstated in the starting line-up.
The story did not change as the right-back began well in the game against FC Metz but was replaces with Remi Oudin on the 20th minute mark to the dismay of their fans at the Stade Saint-Symphorien.
But coach Paulo Sousa says he substituted the Ghanaian due of injury.
“Enock was down, yes , and that’s why we pulled him out. He’s a powerful player who gives you breadth but he also made the decision to come with the ball inward, to do one-two and work in his lane.”
“He's a player who can give you a lot, but we made the decision to take him out because on a physical level he didn't feel really completely fine.”
