Walter BENITEZ of OGC Nice has an impressive statistic to his name.
BENITEZ, who represented Argentina at the U20 level during the South American youth tournament in 2013 has yet to be given a chance with the senior team. However, with all of the changes happening, it couldn’t be a bad thing if he was given a chance with the team.
Per Opta, the 25 year old BENITEZ has saved 84.9% of the shots he has faced in Ligue 1 this season. Only Liverpool goalkeeper ALISSON, who has an 85.3% save percentage has done better in the Top 5 European leagues this season.

With Geronimo RULLI not being in top form, Sergio ROMERO not playing, Paulo GAZZANIGA just receiving his first call-up and Franco ARMANI being in and out of the team, perhaps giving BENITEZ a chance would work.
