Clinton Njie had just over 15 minutes of match warmth


The game pitting Toulouse against Marseille on Saturday was delicately poised and the two teams were headed for a draw until Clinton Njie happened at the 63rd minute and gave Alain Casanova and his side heartbreak, scoring a goal and assisting two others to see the game off 2-5.

The Cameroon winger has been praised for what he brings to the Marseille team from the bench by coach Alain Casanova after he and his team fell victim’s to a deadly supper sub, in the last playing day to the French League 1.

Speaking in the post match press conference after the game, Casanova said:” the entrance of Njie gave us a lot of worries, he entered with freshness and brought in depth”.

The 25-year-old former Lyon and Tottenham man entered the game at the 63rd minute in place of Frenchman, Valere Germain and quickly made an impact with 1 goal and 2 assists to hand Marseille a comfortable victory from a mode of panic.

The statistics are resounding. Njie’s performance on Saturday now means he is the most effective player from the bench in League 1-involved in 11 goals since last season from the bench; 6 goals and 5 assists.
