Bordeaux win French Super Cup – The Italian Connection

frenchsupercup Bordeaux win French Super Cup   The Italian Connection

It’s true Lyon have finally been knocked from their pedestal, and Bordeaux win 5 – 4 on penalties, the first Cup of the season and the first Girondins’ Super Cup victory since 1987.  Lyon having won the Super Cup 6 years running makes this a huge change of scenery for French Football.

Bordeaux started the shoot out in the worst way when Fernando Cavenaghi missing the first attempt. The next five penalties were scored and than another missed attempt for Bordeaux this time by striker David Bellion.  However, the tide turned once both Sidney Govou and Italian connection uno Fabio Grosso missed for Lyon, while Italian connection due, on-loan AC Milan playmaker, Yoann Gourcuff , scored for the eventual winners.  Here’s hoping more to come from Bordeaux this 08-09 season.

It’s said a vacation does wonders so hurrah Gourcuff, but of course there’s no place like home, so can you say Grosso and Inter in the same sentence?  Moratti I say, show him the money!
