Saidy Janko gaining recognition for debut goal at Bolton Wanderers

by Ben Topliss

When you think of the best footballers in the world, the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi pop into your head. After that, names like Arjen Robben and Gareth Bale come to the fore.

Saidy Janko would certainly not immediately spring to mind when fans put together their top ten lists but that is all set to change after Sky Sports included the youngster in the Goals! segment of their website. He’s odds on favourite to win the Ballon d’Or now.

Janko, who is on loan at Bolton Wanderers from Manchester United, recently scored a cracker for his new club and is deservedly getting praised for his effort.

Sky Sports were so impressed they decided to showcase it alongside strikes from some of the world’s best players:

The goal, against Cardiff City earlier this month, capped a hugely impressive debut for Janko as he also set up Eidur Gudjohnsen to score during the game.

The 19-year-old is getting some much needed experience at Bolton and he will hoping to get some opportunities in United’s first-team next season.
