The CAP, whose academy are celebrating their 12th birthday this year. The 8 years they where associated partners with JMG ACADEMY, they offered Algerian football a defender (Bensebaini), laterals (Benguit, Atal, Loucif), recuperators (Boudaoui, Benkhelifa) but also offensive midfielders (El Mouden, El Mellali, Mansousri, Zorgane etc.).
Naidji is the missing link for this team known for their high level technical quality players. But they where lacking a finisher and it is no coincidence that the Paradou is now on the podium. One of the main reason why Zakaria Naidji is top scorer is probably because he is an author of five doubled this season, the balls end up more often in the nets.

Devourer of spaces, he also knows how to put weight on the defenses in the box and is able to score with his head. But also with his skills and technique he can make his teammates play.
