Algerian international player Said Benrahma said that he suffered a lot from marginalization in the French club OGC Nice before he set off his high talents in the English club Brentford FC.
“In the French team Nice, I almost lost hope, even though I was at the beginning of my football career. When I moved to Brentford FC, they appreciated my technical abilities, and they allowed me to play. I must admit that the management of Brentford club contributed a lot to the success I achieved”, Said Benrahma explained.
Benrahma started his professional career with the senior team in the French team Nice, at the age of 18 in 2013. But he did not take much advantage of playing opportunities, and he was seconded to three local teams in instalments: Ligue 1 Angers club and Ligue 2 clubs Gazélec Ajaccio and Châteauroux, before moving in summer 2018 to Brentford in England for 4 seasons.
The Algerian Greens striker added in comments to the British newspaper “Daily Mail” on Tuesday: “I felt a kind of indescribable pleasure”, in response to a question about the news of Chelsea’s interest in signing him this summer.
Benrahma, 24, continued; “I have been following the activities of the English championship since my childhood, especially the matches of Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea teams. I dreamed of playing in the Premier League someday. This does not mean that the English Championship is my only goal because you do not know what your future will be like”.
Previously, Said Benrahma won the honorary title in the past few days, of the best player in the English championship for the second division this season, according to a referendum for the specialized “who scored” website in the UK.
