PSG On-Loan Goalkeeper Saves Two Penalties To Knock Them Out Of The Cup, Celebrates With Knee Slide

Paris Saint-Germain were dumped out of the Coupe de France by their own goalkeeper after on-loan shotstopper save Marcin Bulka saved two spot-kicks for Nice in the penalty shoot-out.

The two sides played out a 0-0 draw in 120 minutes of action at the Parc des Princes and the game went all the way to penalties, where Nice won 6-5.


Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe both converted but Bulka, who joined Nice on loan in the summer, denied both Leandro Paredes and Xavi Simons to send Christophe Galtier's side into the quarter finals.

And Bulka did not limit his emotions in any way. After making the crucial save from Simons, he darted away in celebrations and was mobbed by his teammates.

Bulka performed a knee-slide after knocking his parent club out of the competition and footage of him in the dressing room showed him continuing to have the time of his life.

The Polish goalkeeper spent time in the Chelsea academy set-up and won the FA Youth Cup in back-to-back seasons.

After his contract expired, he signed for PSG in July 2019 but has only played twice in Ligue One for the Parisians and spent time on loan at Cartagena and Chateauroux.

But in a wild set of circumstances, the 22-year-old's finest moment in the French capital actually came against his employers.

Bulka was actually PSG's No.30 and had to give up his squad number to Messi after the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner joined in a stunning free transfer from Barcelona.

He's joined Nice on a loan with an option to buy.
