 AFCON Winning duo find new clubs

Africa Cup of Nations winning duo of Yacine Brahimi and Mehdi Abeid have found new clubs following Algeria’s 2019 triumph in Egypt.

Brahimi has moved to Qatar with Al Rayyan acquiring his services while Mehdi Abeid has signed for Nantes in France, with both having three-year deals.

The pair were free agents, Brahimi's contract with Portugal’s Porto ended as did Abeid's at French club Dijon.

Brahimi, 29, made two appearances for Algeria at the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt, including one as a substitute as they beat Senegal 1-0 in the final and took to social media to pay tribute to Porto, where he played 148 games scoring 39 goals.

"To my Portista family, you will stay forever in my heart. In Porto, I spent five unforgettable years of my life with my family. Here I discovered a city full of life and extraordinary people.


"A big thank you to all the supporters who warmly welcomed me on my arrival and always honored and supported me, you are great.

"I would also like to thank the President, my coaches, the technical staff and my teammates. I wish with all my heart a lot of success and many more titles for FC Porto."

Abeid, who is 26, played in all three of the Algeria group games in Egypt but did not feature in the knockout phase.
