During his first few weeks in France, Kamaldeen Sulemana has left Ligue 1 Uber Eats defenders with their heads spinning.

His stunning goal at Stade Rennais FC's 3-0 win at FC Metz last Sunday was further proof of the teenager's talent.

 

After seven league starts, Sulemana has contributed four goals and the explosive Ghanaian winger showing no signs of slowing down. 

 

"He brings a real freshness," coach Bruno Génésio told the Ligue 1 Show on beIN SPORTS. "Don't forget he's only 19. For a player who's just arrived he's had an amazing start to the season."

Before scoring his first goal on the road, Sulemana had already netted on his Ligue 1 Uber Eats debut against RC Lens. He then struck two brilliant efforts in a 6-0 rout of Clermont Foot 63 in Round 7.

 

Aged just 19 seven months and eight days, he became the youngest Rennes player to register a double since Ousmane Dembélé in April 2016. 

 

Before the international break, Sulemana ripped into the Paris Saint-Germain defence, and set up Gaëtan Laborde for the first goal in a 2-0 win. The most dangerous teenager in Ligue 1 Uber Eats right now, the future looks very bright indeed for Sulemana.
