In 2015, the coach of the France team Corinne Deacon had under her command a very promising young midfielder named… Farid Boulaya.
“I have good memories of Farid. When he signed for Clermont, he was in great difficulty because he had no club,” recalls Corinne Deacon. “I was a little surprised to find a player of such a level that no club had seen his qualities. But I was very happy that he went through Clermont.” Comments relayed by republicain-lorrain.fr.
In Auvergne, Boulaya had a full season, scoring 7 goals and 4 assists in 34 Ligue 2 games. Until an unfortunate rupture of the cruciate ligaments in the spring, a few weeks before his transfer to Bastia. “He had a serious injury which put a stop to the progression of his career. But today Farid is coming of age. I’m happy with the season he’s doing.”
“I also think that with coach Antonetti, things are going well. I am happy for him,” continued Corinne Deacon.
