Tunisia's Selim Benachour Seeking National Team Return

The midfielder would like to return to the old continent to boost his profile and earn a place in the Tunisian national team ahead of the next World Cup.
Now that his contract with Kuwait’s Al-Qadsia has run out, Selim Benachour is in France and is training with the reserves of his first club, Paris Saint-Germain, as he looks to be signed by a European team that will allow him to receive significant playing time.

Considered as one of the Tunisia’s most technical players only a few years ago, his career has not quite met the extremely high expectations that many Carthage Eagles fans had for him. Now the playmaker is looking to make up for lost time in order to potentially make a return to the Tunisian national team.

“I’d like to sign at a club where I can play regularly. Next season, I’m not forgetting that there’s the 2010 World Cup in sight. However, since I went to Al-Qadsia more than a year ago, the Tunisian Football Federation hasn’t called me up. Now I’m going to do all that is possible to return to the team in order to play in the upcoming World Cup,” he explained in an interview with francefootball.fr.

The player also indicated that he had a trial with FC Saint-Gallen in Switzerland but did not sign there because he and the club could not agree on personal terms.

Meanwhile, he also said that he’s in advanced negotiations with some second division French teams and some Turkish teams but will be taking his time in making a sound decision regarding his future destination.
