BiographyEdit

Remili was born in Créteil, a commune in southeastern suburbs of Paris. His father, Kamel Remili, played his entire career for US Créteil and won the LNH 1 with them in 1989.[2]

When Nedim turned 10, he began playing handball in his father club, US Créteil, where his father works as a board member.[3] Remili showed a lot of qualities while in the academy of US Créteil and reached a height of 1.95 meter at the age of 16. Remili made his debut for the first team of US Créteil on 12 October 2012, at the age of 17, during a league game against USDK Dunkerque. During the same year, Créteil were relegated to the Handball D2, the second-tier league of France. Despite interest from some of the biggest clubs in French handball, Remili signed his first professional contract in 2013 with US Créteil.

The following season (2013–14), in the Handball D2, Remili became a key player in the squad of US Créteil, and helped them to return to the LNH 1. Remili was called up to the national French youth team for the 2015 Men's Junior World Championship, but a shoulder injury forced him to watch the championship at home, as France became world champions.

During the 2015–16 season, Remili performed amazingly for US Créteil, which earned him a call-up to the All-Star Game and to the France national team squad for the 2016 European Championship.
