Profile

Marouane Chamakh has had to bide his time but the young Moroccan is now regarded as Bordeaux’s principal marksman - only after continuing his studies in Bordeaux, perhaps after some ear-bending from his parents, whom he remains very close to.


After a difficult start, he imposed himself in the reserves, with Coach Jean-Louis Garcia installing him as the team’s divot in attack.


Chamakh rattled goals in virtually every week, and Elie Baup, then Bordeaux Coach, could not help but notice the progress the lean teenager was making. He made his first-team debut against Metz in the Coupe de la Ligue in January 2003 and was promoted to the starting line-up the following week against Grenoble.


Playing alongside Pauleta, Chamakh did not look out of his depth and turned in a superb display. Baup used him regularly for the remainder of the season, mainly when Pauleta and Jean-Claude Darcheville needed a breather.


He was immediately called up to the Moroccan national team and has already attained cult status in his homeland. Part of the side that reached the 2004 African Cup of Nations Final, Chamakh’s popularity in Morocco soared when he netted a last-gasp equaliser against North African rivals Algeria in the quarter-final tie which Morocco went on to win 3-1.


In 2003/04, Chamakh was a regular under Michel Pavon. With Pauleta gone and Darcheville suffering an injury-ravaged campaign, he made 25 appearances, scoring six.


Newcastle will pay the sum of £15 million for Chamakh
