“It was not an obligation for me to leave”
During an interview given to Square Posts, Mahdi Camara let go regarding his departure from theASSE. Today at Bresthe then confided: “ Was it my desire to leave my training club? It’s complicated because Sainté is my favorite club. I spent so many years there. Afterwards, I had this opportunity with Brest and I went there but it was not an easy decision to make. I really wanted to go to Sainté but I told myself that for my career, it was surely the best solution. Playing in L2 with Sainté was possible for me. But there was the Brest offer. I liked the speeches from the leaders, especially the sports director Greg Lorenzi. But it wasn’t an obligation for me to leave » .
“Batlles gave me the choice”
Mahdi Camara then added: “ Was I able to chat with Laurent Batlles? Yes, the coach and I know each other well since he had me in the youth teams. I have a very good relationship with him. We had a private discussion that I keep to myself, but basically he left me the choice. It’s true that I didn’t start with a very good memory since it was just after the 6-0 at home against Le Havre. The period was delicate for the club and for me too. Looking back, I am disappointed with this ending but I try to keep the good memories, because I had great years in Sainté ».
