Muhammed Cham stood out on Sunday in Reims, scoring a spectacular goal (his first in L1), with a left-footed curled shot from a position usually rather favored by right-handers. This had allowed Clermont, led 0-2 at the break, to pass in front of the score, before finally winning (4-2).
This technical and elegant young playmaker, Austrian international Espoirs (21 years old, 4 selections), extended this Wednesday until 2025, with an option for an additional year, his contract in favor of the Auvergne club. Then from Admira Wacker (Austrian D1), after being trained in Wolfsburg, Cham had initially signed up for four years with Clermont in October 2020.
But he was loaned to Wedyssel (Danish D2) for one season, then to Lustenau (Austrian D2, the club-subsidiary of CF63) in 2021-2022, scoring 15 goals and delivering 12 assists in 29 Championship matches. After extending, he will seek to confirm his very promising discovery of Ligue 1 from Sunday against Nice (3 p.m., 3rd day).
