At the end of the first 17 days played, the player has only played two games, especially against Lille (1-1), for a total of 47 minutes. Efficient by its commitment during this meeting, it has not been used much since by Rudi Garcia. Djamel Benlamri, arrived to make up for the departure of Joachim Andersen to Fulham, expressed his frustration on social networks.
” Frustrated, if I say no I’ll be lying, he said on social networks explaining his performance in club and national team. I will soon have my chance at OL and I am sure I will be able to seize it, I have no doubts about my abilities. I get hurtful messages sometimes from Algerian supporters, but we have to support us players for the good of the national team. I play in a team which is leader of the championship and places are expensive. “Said the player who still believes in an important place in the workforce despite the obstacles.
