“This is my neighborhood, the 20th arrondissement.
I was from the rue des Orteaux.
At the end of my street, we came across the Déjerine stadium.
For Joris Correa, FC Chambly striker, the reunion with his former club will not however be placed under the sign of nostalgia.
However, he knows what he owes to Paris FC, one of the clubs that enabled him to achieve professionalism after his arrival as a youngster, before he joined the Paris football training center (CFFP).
For three years, Joris Correa made his ranges before the big departure for Corsica.
“I spent six years there, tells the player at number 27 as his age.
I have incredible memories of it.
He almost signed pro at Paris FC
He played there in particular for a few minutes in Ligue 1 before returning to the capital. “I no longer had a club and one day Samuel Yohou asked me why I would not come to train at the PFC, explains the Camblysien. We were supposed to be in October and the coach of the Abbès Ousfane reserve immediately told me that he was interested. »In National 3, Joris Correa had a great season and scored 10 goals in 20 games. “We finished second in the championship and the first went to Ligue 2,” he says. Christophe Taine wanted me to sign pro. But there has been a change of coach. I did not want to wait for another to be appointed and I preferred to go to Sedan (N1). I lacked patience. "
In the Ardennes under the orders of a certain Roger Lemerre, the attacker does not win.
No more than in Grande-Synthe (N3).
If he got a little lost on the way, Joris Correa finds himself on the Essonne side, in Sainte-Geneviève.
“I really had a blast there.
It's probably my best football memory.
At Sainte-Gen ', we were really a bunch of friends.
Thanks to them, I rediscovered the pleasure of playing.
Saint-Gen really gave me a boost.
»Author of 13 goals in 30 games, Joris Correa and his team narrowly missed the rise in National in favor of Drancy.
Three penalties registered in the last three matches
Regardless, the door of the National opens anyway for the pocket striker with a proposal from Chambly. A first season that goes ideally with the title of top scorer of the club with 13 goals and especially a rise in Ligue 2. However, the Parisian titi of Chambly leaves for Orléans (L2). After six complicated months, he returned to the Oise in the form of a loan then in final transfer after the maintenance in L2 provided by the club of the Luzi brothers.
This Saturday, against his former club, it will still be a question of maintenance. “I hope we will win, assures Correa. In any case, there will be no draw. There will be no calculations. Before this meeting, Correa would be happy to score again from the penalty spot. As against Nancy (1-1), Le Havre (4-2) and Pau (1-0), in the last three games. “A small penalty in the 92nd minute, that sounds good to me, laughs Correa. That way, the PFC won't have time to come back. "
If this is the case, FC Chambly will be well placed to validate a maintenance, very badly embarked a few weeks ago. “Personally, I don't feel any pressure on this last game. It's just a soccer game. The only importance to me are the jobs at the club that must be saved at all costs. We, the players, have the power to save the work of many people. We don't have the right to let go. "
