Following France’s success in the 2006 World Cup, Boubakary Soumare’s parents who were footballitically inspired decided they must set things formal with their son. They decided to seek for a nearby club so little Bouba could have trials.

Boubakary Soumare Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts – Early Career Life
Within seconds after it was announced he had secured a successful trial with the club, the joy of the Boubakary Soumare’s family members knew no bounds. That same world cup year (2006), little Bouba (his childhood nickname) was enrolled in the academy wings of Paris FC (NOT PSG) who laid a better foundation for his young career.
Bouba was quick to settle into the Paris FC academy. Approaching his teenage years, he was still able to do everything- always ahead of the others while he played at the Paris FC’s Déjerine stadium.
Back then, Marc Moesta- his U12 and U13 coach at Paris FC once testified that Boubakary Soumare was able to do high-level things for his little age.

Boubakary Soumare Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts – Road to Fame Story
While the rising star was in his U13, news of his skills & talent had already begun spreading across France. At that time, Boubakary Soumare’s parents decided to approve the idea of their son leaving Paris FC to PSG where he had a successful trial. Bouba continued to progress with PSG, joining the likes of Matteo Guendouzi who was one of PSG’s best youth stars at that time.
Boubakary Soumare began his U14s youth level at PSG under coach Sébastien Thierry who saw him as an extremely determined player- a warrior on the field. Despite being praised, there came a constant worry for the young lad after academy graduation. Playing with Paris Saint-Germain B meant he was under the shadows of the PSG senior team, a development that looked like a passing fantasy. Sadly, the young lad still found himself under the shadows of PSG top midfielders.
Gaining entrance into the PSG senior team means outranking any of the likes of Julian Draxler, Javier Pastore, Marco Verratti and Adrien Rabiot who were all in the peak of their powers. Growing further inpatient and having left with no options, Boubakary Soumare shockingly turned down the request to sign a professional contract with PSG. This gave many junior clubs the opportunity to prey on him and beg for his signature.
Boubakary Soumare Childhood Story Plus Untold Biography Facts – Rise to Fame Story
Among all clubs, it was Lille OSC that seized the opportunity thanks to the club’s sports adviser Luis Campo. Campo got his hands on the highly coveted talent in the summer of 2017. At first, things didn’t go as expected for Boubakary Soumare as he was frustrated seeing coach Christophe Galtier installing a 4-2-3-1 system that leaves only two places in the midfield. Having only two midfield slots called for huge competition among midfielders. Bouba was up to the task.
While the scanty mid-field issue persisted, Boubakary Soumare’s family advised him to be patient about the development and never to relent in taking opportunities that come his way. As expected, Bouba didn’t disappoint when an opportunity presented itself. He brought more impact on the field than his fellow compatriot Thiago Maia, who had previously been ahead of him in the hierarchy of midfield replacements.
But rather than crumble, the midfielder went from strength to strength, achieving a meteoric rise in his combative midfield nature. To date, one of Bouba’s key attributes is his wonderful range of passing, which allows him to dictate the tempo of the game, keep things ticking in the midfield and switch the play to set up attacks. Boubakary Soumare’s style of play reminded everyone of Paul Pogba [See Below and judge for yourself].
Comfortable with the ball at his feet, Bouba can pick a pass or dribble forward with his deceptively quick and agile body- making his opponents struggle to dispossess him. Even if they do, they then can’t overpower him. This attribute gave rise to his nickname “The New Pogba” because Bouba resembles the mold of the French footballer who helped his country win the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Without a doubt, football fans are on the verge of seeing even a better version of Paul Pogba blossoming his way into a world-class talent right in front of our very eyes. Boubakary Soumare is indeed one of the best among the endless production line of midfielders of his French generation. The rest, as they say, is history.
