Following the announcement of the retirement of the captain and goalkeeper of the French team Hugo Lloris, Mike Maignan is promoted to the number 1 goalkeeper of Les Bleus. A promotion that Fabian Barthez, the French legend validates. He deplores his absence at the World Cup 2022, but thinks he has the talent for his new mission.
“He is 28 years old. It’s a pity he missed the World Cup, I can’t judge him at international level yet. He is starting a new adventure but he doesn’t have time to learn. However, for the last three years, Mike has brilliantly climbed the ladder. We have never seen him at this level of competition, but he is very talented and very present in the penalty area,” said the 1998 World Cup winner to Le Parisien.
