Scorer on Monday in Grenoble’s victory against Troyes (2-0), Mamadou Diallo was elected man of the match, but when receiving his trophy, the attacker got the wrong idea.
Pretty funny scene this Tuesday evening, after Grenoble’s victory against Troyes for the 17th day of Ligue 2. Some players are more used than others to receive honors. Proof of this is with Mamadou Diallo.
The Senegalese striker was in great shape on Monday with a goal and the origin of the penalty which brings the second goal, during the victory of his team against Troyes (2-0). It was also during his post-match interview. Logically elected man of the match, Mamadou Diallo seemed overwhelmed by events at the microphone of beIN Sports. While the journalist told him to collect his trophy, he tried to leave with the base and not the trophy, which is a little smaller. Better yet, it will hang on the base throughout the interview. To conclude this memorable outing, he conceded: “It is obvious that this is the first time,” said the Grenoblois, always so relaxed.
A rather funny anecdote but the essential is elsewhere. With this success, Grenoble took the lead in the championship, ahead of its evening opponent on goal difference (34 points each). Before starting the year 2021 against Clermont (6e), on January 5, the Isérois will be able to spend the end of year celebrations as leaders … and with a man of the match trophy in the trunk.
