With the full confidence of Stade Brestois, solid and surprise second-placed PSG, Madhi Camara spoke to Le Télégramme. Passages.

After leaving ASSE 18 months ago, Mahdi Camara is having the best season of his career. With 5 goals scored and 3 assists in 21 games played. The man with 137 games in Ligue 1 is now a safe bet in this championship. Once again, Saint-Etienne's academy releases a player who is flourishing in the professional world.

Lucky number

“I wear number 45 in honor of William Gomis, a deceased friend I roomed with at Saint-Étienne. He played central defender, he wore 4 or 5. It was a shock for me, it's not a coincidence. It wasn't easy to get over it .When I go to the field, I think of his picture, I do it for him too.

Soccer has always been my life even though I played a little basketball when I was younger. I was fired from Creps d'Aix-en-Provence after a year. I don't know if I was ready for it then. I have a certain character. I'm not the easiest, but I'm not the hardest to live with either. I've calmed down a bit with maturity, I'm a bit calmer than before. I still bleed sometimes, but much less than before, I manage to channel myself.

ASSE captain? Pride!

Saint-Étienne saw me grow up. It was a great source of pride to be the captain of ASSE. Going down with the Greens in L2 will remain a big regret for me. I don't think I'm a young football player anymore, I'm in the second phase of my career. This season I raised the level of my game, I performed better than last year. Becoming the first player in the history of Stade Brestois to score an away hat-trick, in L1? It's a small dedication.”
