The Bordeaux starlet, who has been compared to his compatriot Riyad Mahrez, had an incredible impact off the bench against Lille on Saturday night
Bordeaux youngster Adam Ounas is being tipped as one of the latest jewels to emerge from Ligue 1 — and with performances like this, it’s easy to see why.
The Algerian, who bears more than a slight resemblance to Riyad Mahrez in his left-footed midfield play, has been linked with Manchester United as he continues to rise to prominence.
His most impressive turn yet came Saturday night in Bordeaux’s clash with Lille, when he was introduced with just 15 minutes to go.
The visitors were trailing 2-1 at the time, but what followed was spectacular. Ounas first grabbed the equaliser, just three minutes after coming on, with a volley so powerful the goalkeeper spilled it across the line.
Four minutes later, he had sealed the three points for Bordeaux by counter-attacking down the left and curling a perfectly placed shot into the top corner — just like his compatriot Mahrez.
