Ohani: ‘My choice was natural’
“President, I had discussions with him during the World Cup. He introduced me to the club and he explained to me that he wanted me to come to OM.

I had a discussion with Armin Harriet and he told me about the club. I The choice is natural.”
Longoria explains why Ounahi was recruited
“For us it’s important to recruit Ligue 1 players for the Championship. We’ve had his eye on him for a long time. Every time we finish a game, he’s a player I want to pay tribute to in all our opponents.” I think He’s a special player, he’s got talent, he’s off-balance. In order to strengthen the team, it is necessary to find a percussionist, ball control. He has quality. With Armin Harriet injured, we said we were looking for a player with a similar profile. He’s not exactly the same type of player, but we want to be dynamic up front. It’s necessary for the way we play.”
