The Reims adventure is nearing its end for Yunis Abdelhamid. In an interview with the team, the Moroccan international has announced that he will leave the Stade de Reims at the end of the season.
A worthy Ligue 1 club, the Atlas Lions are the first player to make 50 consecutive Ligue 1 games since Daniel Congre (66) in 2012. However, the Moroccan, although happy in Reims, has expressed his desire to try a new adventure.
" It is true that by mutual agreement we stayed on this idea to go until my last year of contract. But in football, we do not always know what can happen. In Reims, I am fulfilled. It's going well with the players, the leaders, the staff. This cloakroom is my second home. The most important thing is that the team is performing for the moment. We will see if we can rediscuss. Extend? It's not really the idea. It's rather that I leave. But I will not project myself. I will be fixed soon enough. Before the end of the season. From now on I am alone, without any agent", He explained.
Player of the best defense of the championship, Yunis Abdelhamid should not miss any solicitations.
Coveted in Turkey during the summer transfer window, Abdelhamid has chosen to remain in Ligue 1 in the ranks of the club Reims with which he is under contract until 2020.
Author of an excellent season 2018/2019, the Moroccan had nominated for the trophy Marc-Vivien Foe, which rewards the best African player playing in Ligue 1, before being preceded by Nicolas Pepe.
Abdelhamid is also an important part of the national team. Often called by Vahid Halilhodzic, the defender is one of the 24 players selected for the matches against Mauritania on November 15 and Burundi on the 19, in the frame of the qualifiers for CAN 2021.
