Adil Rami Club career

In 1994, at the age of nine, Rami enrolled as a youth player with Étoile Fréjus Saint-Raphaël, then known as ES Fréjus. Rami only played the sport as a hobby and worked for city hall to support himself, despite harboring dreams of playing football professionally.

During the 2003–04 season, he made his amateur debut for the club when Fréjus was competing in the amateur Championnat de France, the fourth tier of French football. In his first season, he played in four matches. Rami played in 24 matches in the 2004–05 season as Fréjus finished mid-table.

Rami moved to playing in central defense before the 2005–06 season. Initially, he mostly played as an offensive player in the midfield, but his coaches inserted him into defense after an injury to a teammate, whom Rami described as his best friend. The move was a success, with Rami featuring for the third straight season in 30 matches with Fréjus finishing mid-table.

Rami was given a trial by Professional Club Lille halfway through the campaign. Eager to leave the amateur club, he took the opportunity and was signed to an amateur contract with Fréjus earning € 10,000 after a week of training session with Lille, which Rami described as "hard".


Rami was inserted into the club's amateur Championnat de France squad following his arrival at the club and was managed by coach Pascal Planque, who Rami said offered him the best opportunities to develop as a player.

As the team finished in third place, Rami played in 27 matches, the highest finish among the reserve team of professional clubs participating in the division. In the 2006–07 Ligue 1 season, Rami was called up by manager Claude Puel to the senior team with two months left.

He made his professional debut on 19 May 2007, starting at center-back, in a Ligue 1 match against Auxerre. Rami started again the following week, against Rennes. After agreeing to a three-year deal extending until 2010, Rami signed his first professional contract on 4 June. On a permanent basis, he was later elevated to the senior squad and given the number 23 jersey.

Rami was named a starter by Puel in the 2007-08 season and inserted at center-back alongside Captain Grégory Tafforeau. Rami played in the opening match of the season against Lorient until the 69th minute when he sustained a ligament injury to one of his knees. Because of the injury, he eventually spent three and a half months, returning in November 2007.

He scored the would-be game-winner against Bordeaux in the 57th minute on 1 February 2009. The score was, however, canceled out by Yoann Gourcuff eight minutes later to level the match at 2-2. In a 3-2 victory over Nancy on the final day of the league season, Rami's fourth and final goal of the season was the team's second goal.

The win won Lille fifth spot, contributing to the club qualifying for the newly formed

UEFA Europa League

, and the Italian club Milan. Despite the player's acceptable offers, Lille chairman Michel Seydoux announced that after a rumored move to Marseille for EUR 12 million was unexpectedly canceled in July 2009, Rami will not be leaving the club.

The declaration led to a devastated and furious Rami announcing that if he was not moved, he would see the remainder of his contract with Lille played in the reserves. He also went so far as to say that, because of the club's quick negotiations during transfers with each other, there was a plot between Lille and Lyon, as well as Seydoux's brother, Jérôme, being a Lyon shareholder.

Rami apologized for these remarks on 15 August 2009 and confirmed that he would stay in Lille.

As Lille lost early on due to its difficult schedule, in which the team faced Marseille,

Paris Saint-Germain

, and


in the first four weeks of the season, Rami started the 2009-10 season again as a starter. In the first leg of the club's third qualifying round match, he made his UEFA Europa League debut on 30 July 2009.

In the annual Derby du Nord match against Lens, Rami scored his first goal of the season on 19 September. Rami linked on a header after a corner kick in the 93rd minute with Lille down 1-0 in injury time at a hostile Stade Félix-Bollaert to level the match at 1-1, which was the final outcome.

On 28 October, after delivering a curling free-kick from almost 35 meters out, he scored his second goal against Saint-Étienne in a 4-0 win. On 25 February 2010, after connecting on a header five minutes from time, Rami scored the aggregate-winning goal in the team's round of 32-second leg tie away to Fenerbahçe.

Pamela revealed her new boyfriend to her mother in the summer and moved to Rami's residence in Marseille. She often attended matches with Adil and did not conceal her feelings from the man.

Pam shared with journalists the specifics of the romance and stressed that her age was not seen by Adil. Some thoughts, though, were disturbing: as she was getting old, Anderson did not want to see herself with a young boyfriend.

During the FIFA World Cup 2018, the player proposed to Pamela, and she said yes. When she went out, one could see the Cartier Ring with a diamond on her finger. Nevertheless, in fall 2018, the pair announced their break-up; the media attempted to learn the reasons but failed. In Spring 2019, as if nothing had happened, the celebrities were seen together.
