The most exportable players in the world

French Soccer methodology is recognized around the world for its proven ability to identify, prepare and develop players with what it takes to succeed at the professional level. Many of the world’s top players today, most recently Killian Mbappe, are products of the French training program.

According to a 2018 study lead by Football Expert Darko Dukic, 52 football players (almost 2 teams) participating in the 2018 World Cup were born French demonstrating that over the last two decades, French professional players are very attractive for international football clubs, way above Brazilian, Spaniards, German or British players. In total 216 French players playing at the highest level of football competition throughout the world since 2002 (against 148 for second most attractive country Brazil).

The French methodology leads to an outstanding preparation, a smart innovative vision of the game and an impeccable work-ethic.
