Scorpions-eligible Saidy Janko made his debut for Saint-Etienne who beat Champions League hopefuls Nice 1-0 on the opening day of the French Ligue 1 season.
The 21-year-old was given a place at right-back by coach Óscar García and he didn’t disappoint as he guided the team to victory.

In front of a 25,879-capacity crowd, the hosts were able to get the fans at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard going with their pressing game in the embryonic stages of proceedings.
Janko, a former Manchester United full-back, put in a decent performance at right-back as the youngster looks to put his injury-ridden days in the UK behind him in France.
He joined St-Étienne on a four-year contract last month from Scottish champions Celtic.
