Ivan Balliu confirmed as one of the best right-wing defender in the French championship. The 25-years old player, whose negotiations with Albanian Football Federation kicked off a few months ago, aiming his inclusion in the National Team, is shining with the Metz flannel in League ‘1’.
This week, he is ranked again in the best line-up of the week selected by the French sports newspaper ‘L’Equipe’ experts.
Balliu was the main protagonist in the 2-2 draw against Caen to Metz, after giving two assists for goals scored by his team. The first was an assist from the distance to Sarr who sent the ball into the net with a flying kick.
While the second was an action in his right arm, where he avoided two defenders and then calmly sent the ball Diabate’s feet that pushed it into the empty gate. But that’s not all because the Albanian defender earned a positive grade by ‘L’Equipe’ for the ball possession during this match.
