We were very happy to host Oussama, but I have no doubt for a moment that we can find someone different but equally productive and fits our project perfectly.”He commends the player who scored 12 goals in 15 games with OAC in half a word. Moreover, the Corsican does not hide his astonishment: “You can be a National 3 club with the ambition to get to the National 2 and have players who are first in their group and prefer to play in R2. Surprisingly, that’s the life of football, after all. » Has “sporting reasons”will also be collected “Personal motivations linked to the family aspect” to explain the striker’s hasty departure. But Cévennes fans should not worry. because “One thing is for sure, we’re going to get someone to back Arnold Abelinti to pursue such a high ambition.”, promises Philippe Mallaroni. And to add: “From evil can come good. The world is not insoluble! »
