Seen as one of the big prospects at Stade Rennais’ Academy, Hakim Khadrejnane never made it as a professional footballer in Brittany. This technically-gifted box-to-box midfielder failed to make his mark in the different youth team age groups between 2007-2010. His performances were noted in other countries, notably in Italy where Juventus, AC Milan and Lazio showed an interest. These overtures turned Khadrejnane’s head somewhat, and he became quite demanding with Rennes’ bosses in relation to signing his apprentice contract. After negotiations broke down with Rennes, he crossed the Alps to join Hellas Verona as a professional, despite them only playing in the Italian 3rd Division (Serie C). Khadrejnane remained a player who was watched by a number of top European clubs.
