"Had a little depression": Guilavogui’s laughter is back

Wolfsburg saved a point late at the start of the Bundesliga. That was due to joker Josuha Guilavogui, for whom the goal to make it 2-2 was a very special one.

Wolfsburg took the lead against newly promoted Bremen, but then fell behind due to a double strike by the Green-Whites. Niko Kovac’s wolves were chasing this deficit for a long time. Until the final phase, when Josuha Guilavogui saved the home side with a powerful shot into the left corner to make it 2-2.

When the goal was celebrated, the 31-year-old immediately noticed that he was immensely happy about this goal, possibly more than about his usual goals. Guilavogui beamed from ear to ear and kept pointing to his head. The midfielder explained why it was such a special goal after the end of the game.

“I’m not known for scoring goals, but I’m very happy because it was really difficult for me in Bordeaux. I had a little depression,” Guilavogui said after the game on “Sky” a topic that was still not discussed enough And added: “Today I’m standing on the pitch laughing again. That’s not only important in football, but also in life: we have to fight, always have to stay positive. Because there are shadows, but there is also a lot of light.”

The Wolfsburg player had been loaned to Bordeaux for the past six months, played 15 games in the French first division and scored one goal. Guilavogui is still considered a player who could leave Wolfsburg in the summer if the right offer were made. With appearances like the one against Bremen on Saturday, he obviously does the best advertising for himself. And most importantly, he has his smile back.
