Moreover, the core of the team is quite young this season. Of a total of 15 players, 13 are in their first year on the university circuit. Mohamed El Fehti Abed therefore had to carry out colossal preparation work even before the start of the season.

I have scheduled a lot of exhibition games, because these players have to play. They have to make mistakes, they have to lose games. That’s always at the start of the season that we allow you to do that. […] In winter, when the season resumed, the team was collectively ready and so was I.

I am someone who likes to win. I do everything to win. I think I managed to convey to the players that you have to believe in it. »
