Benatia: 'If it is up to me, El Kaabi will go to Russia' (video)

In the series '100% Lions de l'Atlas' of the Moroccan medium was kicked off today with the captain of the national team, Medhi Benatia. The 30-year-old base defender of Juventus looked back on the successful qualifying series and at the same time the upcoming World Cup and the preparations for that were well over.

With his 30 years and 53 caps behind his name, Medhi Benatia is rightly one of the mainstays of this Moroccan team. The defender who now shines in the colors of Juventus in the Serie A has already been able to build up a nice football CV. Benatia played for include AS Roma, Bayern Munich, Udinese and Clermont Foot. After a somewhat less successful adventure in the Bundesliga, the strong basket man is now back in shape, in the squad of coach Massimiliano Allegri he has been able to win a place for a long time and he performs on a high level every week.

Since he has been fighting in the base of 'the Old Lady' the club is defensively in the wind, with Benatia in the center Juventus got fewer goals and therefore the number of loss points was limited. The club now only has to tolerate SSC Napoli in the competition, the points difference with the leader is currently (with one game less played by Juventus) only one point.
