The national coach A’ Madjid Bougherra will be able to benefit, during the next CHAN which will take place in Algeria, from the services of some international players who joined Algerian clubs this summer. They are Ayoub Abdellaoui, Ilyes Hassani, Mohamed-Réda Helaïmia or even Radouane Zerdoum and Idriss Saâdi.
Madjid Bougherra will prepare the next CHAN which will take place in Algeria from January 8 to 31, 2023. In other words, the national coach will begin his tour of the country’s stadiums to attend the championship matches which will resume from August 26. . The aim is to follow the players likely to appear on its list to play in the continental competition at the start of next year.
As everyone knows, several players with international status have opted for Algerian clubs this summer to bounce back. We cite in particular the three defenders Ayoub Abdellaoui, Mohamed-Réda Helaïmia, Ilyes Hassani as well as the striker Idriss Saâdi. The first two joined the MCA, while the last two rebound respectively from the ESS to the CRB. There could also be Mohamed Benkhemassa who should return to the national championship. He is announced on the MCA side from Al-Ismaily in the form of a loan.
We can also mention a few players who played in different foreign championships and who were hired by Algerian clubs. It is, in fact, the two attackers Ishak Boussouf (Belgium) and Radouane Zardoum (Tunisia) who opted respectively for CRB and JSK.
The least we can say is that these players remain winning cards for Bougherra in anticipation of CHAN. He will be able to bet on them for the important continental meeting. But one thing is certain, they will have to impose themselves with their new clubs to hope to appear on the list of national coach A ‘.
Bougherra loses a few players
On the other hand, national coach A’ Madjid Bougherra will have to do without the services of certain players who played in the national championship. We cite in particular the two best scorers of Paradou AC Nadhir Benbouali and Yousri Bouzok. They went to monetize their talents respectively in Belgium (Charleroi) and Morocco (Raja Casablanca).
Bougherra could also lose other elements that are part of his plans. Indeed, Yacine Titraoui, Adel Boulbina (PAC) or even Ahmed Kendouci (ESS) are on track to join foreign clubs during this summer transfer window.
In short, Bougherra will have about five months to properly prepare for the next CHAN. Taking advantage of the course of the event in Algeria, his ambition is to repeat the feat of the Arab Cup of Nations. The emblematic defender of the Greens had led, let us remember, the national team A ‘lifted the trophy at the end of last year in Qatar after an excellent course.
