Bayern-Schreck Bensebaini plays in the spotlight

Ramy Bensebaini is a typical purchase by Gladbach Sports Director Max Eberl: Young, talented, capable of development.

Footwear Ramy Bensebaini wore up to his 15th. Year of life rarely. As a youth player, the Algerian was part of a special training concept at the Academy of his home club Paradou AC.

In order to focus strongly on technique and ball management, the young man plays almost exclusively barefoot. The left-wing defender of Borussia Munich has not suffered from this. This was impressively demonstrated by the 24-year-old with his hard-wired Foulelfmeter in the aftermath against National Torpedo Keeper Manuel Neuer in his success against Bavaria Munich (2:1).

Since his double pack against the German record master Bensebaini is a term in the Bundesliga. Gladbach sports director Max Eberl had had him on the screen for a long time, and in the summer he piloted him for eight million euros from Stade Rennes as an alternative to Oscar Wendt in Borussia Park.” A cool guy who is ready to work really hard,”was the verdict of coach Marco Rose.

“French Connection”at Borussia

Bensebaini not only because of his brilliant performance against the Bavarians at the Lower Rhine. He is part of the “French Connection” with the foals along with the French-speaking Denis Zakaria, Marcus Thuram, Ibrahima Traor a, Alassane Plaa and Mamadou Doucoure.

The exercises at the training sessions usually take place together, but also off the place they do a lot. As a fashion friend, Bensebaini’s trips to Dusseldorf are particularly fun.” It’s like I’ve been in Borussia for a long time. I get along great with the boys and the mood in the stadium is simply superb,”said Bensebaini.

His commitment was a typical purchase of Eberl: young, talented, capable of development. Bensebaini is a robust player who has also helped in the internal defense. The fact that he has often played against adults in his youth at Paradou pays off.

“Ramy is an unpleasant opponent”

International has drawn Bensebaini’s attention to himself for the first time last summer with the winning of the Africa Cup. On the way to the title Algeria switched off in the eighth final Guinea (3:0) with Traora.

“From this game I know it is hard to play against him. Ramy is an unpleasant opponent. Particularly in a duel, he is strong,”said Traora, recognizing.

This physical presence coupled with his technique makes him valuable for the Bundesliga table leader as well.” You can see his North African temperament, his joy in playing and that he is a really good footballer,”said Rose.

But Bensebaini wants to improve his language skills quickly:”I want to learn German very quickly in order to have a better conversation with everyone. However, it has helped me to get used to the fact that many people here can speak French.”
