It is an action that marked observers last August. During a remarkable evening against Valenciennes (3-0), the Nimes midfielder Yassine Benrahou, author of a goal and two assists, offered himself quite brilliant sequences, and in particular one where, on three outside dribbles, he got rid of several opponents.
This 3rd day of Ligue 2 confirmed what we have been seeing for months. Bought definitively in Bordeaux by Nimes a year ago, for 1.5 M € (and a moderate percentage on resale), Benrahou (22) has asserted himself as one of the revelations of the start of the season.
This elegant left-hander, with the first silky touch, has a rare finesse in the one-on-one. For his first season in Ligue 2 (7 matches, 3 goals, 5 assists), Benrahou, sparkling since the start of the season, displayed technical skills compatible with the high level. “In my job it's important to have stats to help the team. I'm lucky to be able to help him through individual performances. Above all, we have to highlight the team’s start to the season and its consistency. It’s a good thing, I’m happy, and if it helps the club, it’s all good. […] This season I really decided, also through the advice of the staff, to focus on the last 30 meters. "
