Top Ligue 1 goalkeepers

FootballTop.com presents the ranking of the most popular Ligue 1 goalkeepers. If you have problems recollecting their names, you should check the list finding out the major stars.

1. Nicolas Penneteau (Valenciennes)
Valenciennes is one of the main surprises at the start of the season and Penneteau’s performance is one of the keys to this wonder. He plays steadily and inspires the squad to fight the top clubs. FoootballTop.com user’s evaluated his progress and put him at the first place.


2. Steve Mandanda (Olympique Marseille)

Olympique captain is one of the true leaders of the team. He appeared in the first game for the team in 2005 and since that secured a first choice keeper’s position. His brilliant saves in the target brought the team the Ligue 1 title in the season 2009/2010, a season later though he is still one of the main contenders for the Ligue 1 Goalkeeper trophy.


3. Guillermo Ochoa (Ajaccio)
You might be surprised finding a Mexican keeper in the ranking, but the talent of Ajaccio goalkeeper is undisputable. He was signed by the French side in 2011 and from the very first game showed that he was a worthwhile transfer. He helped the team to escape relegation last season and today he is a transfer aim of top European clubs.


4. Salvatore Sirigu (Paris Saint-Germain)

They say that big teams should build the defense line first and only than find a reliable keeper. Yet the Parisian club managed to find a top-quality guard who is quick and confident. Salvatore Sirigu is also quite young, yet progressed from the Serie C1 team Cremonese to PSG just in 5 years. PSG is still in search for their own style on the field and often it is Sirigu who makes numerous seves in the match and gives the team a chance to win difficult games.


5. Mickaël Landreau (Lille)
Landreau has always been considered one of the best French keepers. He has enormous experience and great talent and played for such clubs as Nantes and PSG. He moved to Lille in 2009 and became the major figure there. Unfortunately he has not been number 1 choice in the national team for years, yet FootballTop.com reader’s still believe Landreau is a superb player.
