There are a lot of things that are still allowed. I would like to experience Ligue 1 one day. It is an objective, like that of believing in the Blues ”, he told L’Equipe, adding: ” I am ambitious. I am a competitor. I know what I want. »
Despite the retirements of Hugo Lloris and Steve Mandanda, the doors of the France team will nevertheless be difficult to open. More than those of Algeria.
