These performances are due just to the application of the players in the technical staff program and in particular the head coach, Francisco Alexandre Chalo of Portugal and his assistant Abdelhakim Sabeur.
Paradou AC, the club of Algerian Football Federation (FAF) President Kheïreddine Zetchi, currently managed by his brother Hassan, is making a remarkable comeback, rising to the top of the Algerian league table, while qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Algerian Cup. These performances are worth remembering above all because they are due to the application by the players of the technical staff’s programme and in particular the head coach, Francisco Alexandre Chalo of Portugal and his assistant Abdelhakim Sabeur, which gives more foundation and consistency to the efforts deployed on the field, both by the players and their staff, the FAF President being in no way involved in this course, it should be noted.
A strong comeback
During this phase of the Algerian Ligue 1 championship and after a short home defeat in the Algerian derby against MC Algiers (1-0), the pacist team recorded no less than three good results, starting by holding CR Belouizdad in check at the stadium on August 20 (0-0) before beating ES Sétif at home (1-0) then, finally, and as recently as last weekend, the Chalo team went back with three precious points against O Médéa (1-0). This latest success shows, if need be, the “awakening” of the players of the duo Chalo-Sabeur, whose majority of players cannot stand the pressure.
This is normal, since it is a very “academic” team where only the language of the field prevails and not the results, however they may be. This precious goal scored by Hicham Boudaoui is of crucial importance for the morale of players who doubt when they play outside their bases, because they are too afraid of “pressure”. Moreover, it is the goal of the Paradou team’s first victory on the outside. In addition, the team met a Medea team that is facing the wall, playing to avoid relegation. The scorer of this match, Boudaoui, made this clear by saying, among other things: “We faced an opponent threatened by relegation, which created a lot of problems for us.
But the instructions of the coach and his assistants during the break paid off. A great away victory that must be remembered for this team of young talents. Moreover, another reference match should be mentioned for this friendly team from Paradou: it is this qualification in the quarter-finals of the Algerian Cup in front of a very good team from USM El Harrach (3-0), made up of players much more experienced than those of coach Chalo.
Only work pays off
These results are not due to any “pressure” from the FAF President, but to the good work of the staff and players, let that be clear in passing. However, it should not be forgotten that the team was even harmed by “mistakes” in refereeing which earned it precious lost points… And here, it should also be noted that it is necessary to pay attention to this good football team of the JMG Academy of Paradou for the rest of the course in this phase back of the championship, very decisive, and the continuation of the course in the Algerian cup. As for the team’s future, true to its professional principles, it must be acknowledged that it still has a long way to go and we will have to continue on this same path and achieve much better results in the future, before concluding. The team will work in serenity and can therefore achieve a perfect end of season… Notice to amateurs.
