Algerian FA Boss Pays Tribute to Retiring Medjani

Carl Medjani is the subject of homage from Algeria’s FA boss after he retired from international football.

Born in Lyon and fielding at all cadet levels for France, the 34-year-old switched his allegiance to Algeria in 2010, starring most as a defensive midfielder throughout his time with The Desert Foxes.

In the ten years he’d been with the current African champions, the erstwhile Levante man has been capped fifty-seven times with Algeria and now leaves to focus on FC Salaise with whom he has a deal running until next year.

The Algerian FA president Zetchi Kheiredine was one of the notable figures to have paid a tribute to the retiring Medjani.

“I send a message to Carl Medjani who has announced his retirement after his long and successful career with the squad.

[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””] “On behalf of the entire federation and the football family in Algeria, I would like to thank Carl Medjani from the bottom of my heart for all that he has given as a player but also for his great human qualities.   [/perfectpullquote]

“I have known him very little in the selection but it was enough to know a man with a lot of human values. We wish him not to leave the world of football and to continue to pass diplomas because he has a lot to give in this field,” Zetchi said.
