Announced leaving, Sofiane Feghouli could finally stay at Galatasaray. Free of any commitment, the Algerian international should be entitled to a new contract. President Dursun Özbek wants to keep him in the squad that will represent Istanbul’s flagship club next season.
At the end of the past season, Sofiane Feghouli was announced as a starter. At the end of the contract, he even said goodbye to Galatasaray supporters after the last match of the Turkish championship. A twist took place concerning the future of the player. Indeed, he is set to stay. He should be entitled to a new contract.
Re-elected president of Galatasaray, Dursun Özbek wants to keep the Algerian international. The latter congratulated its president after seeking a new mandate. The two men subsequently exchanged messages, where Özbek expressed his interest in keeping him in the club’s workforce, several Turkish media report. Feghouli and Özbek should therefore soon sit down around a table to negotiate a new contract.
The Algerian international should continue the adventure with Galatasaray at least for another season. This will allow him to evolve further in the high level, despite his somewhat advanced age (32 years old).
His return to selection becomes a necessity
While waiting for Sofiane Feghouli to sign a new contract with Galatasaray, this can only delight Djamel Belmadi. The national coach will still need his player in anticipation of the next important deadlines.
It must be said that the absence of the Algerian midfielder was hard felt during the last matches of the national team. Belmadi tried other alternatives, including Adem Zorgane and Sofiane Bendebka, but none of them could compensate for the absence of their teammate.
Better yet, Feghouli is considered a true leader. Whether on the field or in the locker room, his presence has always had a positive impact on the performance of other players. The least we can say; he is a real captain who is missing from the national team. His return becomes a necessity, it must be said.
Hoping to stay at Galatasaray, Sofiane Feghouli is on track to make her return to selection from the next training camp in September. For the moment, he has not yet announced his international retirement. He always remains in the service of the Greens as long as he is able to bring more.
