French League Goalkeeper's Disaster Throw Backfires And Lands In Own Net

French League Goalkeeper's Disaster Throw Backfires And Lands In Own Net

By Mike Parrott

Ligue 2 Goalkeeper, Brice Maubleu of Grenoble, had a night to forget after his throw backfired dramatically and landed in his own net, gifting the win to Caen.

Being a goalkeeper is deemed as one of the hardest jobs in professional football. When you rarely get plaudits for good performances and normally only receive criticism, being a Goalkeeper comes with insane pressure.

Brice Maubleu, a Ligue 2 goalkeeper for Grenoble had a night to forget, however and his gaffe will be stuck in the mind of many football fans across the world.

After only conceding a minute prior to go 1-0 down, Maubleu came to receive the ball and to distribute it quickly to the other flank with a throw. However, the throw didn't end up on the other flank, but in his own goal.

The Grenoble Goalkeeper was asked about the blunder after the game, saying:

"There are dark evenings and this is one of them. On the goal, I wanted to quickly set Jérôme (Mombris) away, but I saw that he was not looking at me so I revised my decision and then the ball left my hands, a bit like what happened to (Steve) Mandanda one or two years ago."

Maubleu went on to say that he will have to put this into the back of his Mind and move on from the blunder:

"This happens sometimes and people think that it can't possibly happen to others. In the end, I play the ball thinking that all was still okay but apparently the ball had already gone in. I am disappointed because it gave our opponent a two-goal lead... I will have to quickly get back working and move on, because it will likely do the rounds on social media."

The goalkeeper's job is arguably the hardest as stated previously and the Grenoble Goalkeeper agreed with the pressure of the job, due to the exposure and how fans will only remember one blunder over consistent good saves.

"The goalkeeper position is exposed and there are risks. After that, I was back in my match and made saves even though those won't be remembered."
