football player at Pôle Espoir Dijon training centre
You will have noticed that football is my passion since I was a little child when I made my first steps in this sport at the age of three and a half years. Today, from the top of my 13 years old, I played in Olympique Lyonnais club in U11, that I joined in 2014 after being spotted by the president of my former club, Jean-Luc Lascone, President of the ES Genas Azieu Football. In 2017, I join a new football training centre named Pôle Espoir in the city of Dijon. I also play in U15 Elite for the FC Bourgoin Jallieu club. All my experiences in these clubs that I joined were very rewarding both in sporting and human terms. Football is a great brotherhood, and without the support of all my coaches and my teammates, my surroundings, my friends, my family, I would not be here today.
So thank you to all those I had the chance to meet on my path who encourage me and support me every day!
