Called for the first time in selection, Youssouf Fofana joined Clairefontaine this Monday afternoon. In a press conference, the Monegasque mentioned the World Cup but also the players he admired the most.
Like his friend Benoit Badiashile, Youssouf Fofana could wear the tricolor jersey for the first time during this international break. Author of a promising start to the season with the Rock club, the 23-year-old has managed to fit into Didier Deschamps’ plans. At a press conference, the midfielder revealed the names of his models. “The players who inspired me, for the beauty of the style, are Tanguy Ndombélé and Yaya Touré”said the former Strasbourg player.
I was still quite surprised to be selected. I didn’t necessarily expect that. Compared to the World Cup, when you are selected for the last list before the World Cup, you can hope to participate. he also confessed to reporters.
