Dayot Upamecano Childhood Story- Early Life:

Growing up in the French’s Évreux neighborhood was exciting for young Dayot. Early on, he lived and played football (futsal or five-a-side football complex) from morning to night. He did that with his best friend who is no other than fellow French footballer- Ousmane Dembele. Speaking about his childhood experience, Dayot once said;

“With Ousmane and others, we played football all the time. We also played futsal. Early on, We worked on our technique, aggressiveness. We played without limits. And that helped us a lot.”

As a kid, Dayot Upamecano was not the best on the pitch. Because football was a family passion, the young lad was lucky to have his family members as both advisors and helpers.

Dayot Upamecano’s dad, for instance, made him worked very hard in order to ensure he gets accepted into a decent football academy. Thankfully, he began his first footballing steps with Vaillante S. Angers (2004-2007) and FC De Prey (2008-2009).

Dayot Upamecano Childhood Story- Early Career Life:

The year 2009 was a great year for kid footballers in his neighborhood. That year saw a new club academy named “Evreux Football Club 27” beginning operations not so far away from his family home. Lucky Dayot and his best friend Ousmane Dembélé were among those who first attended and passed trials with the academy.

For Dayot, life at Evreux wasn’t easy at first. Thou he had his feet on the ground from a very young age. Dayot once claimed that he worked more than others (mostly on solo-mode) while he played there. In his words;

 “In Evreux, at the end of training, I still go to kick the ball alone. It worked for me and it was the key to my success.”

Dayot Upamecano Biography- Road to Fame Story:

Hard work at Evreux paid finally as it saw lucky Dayot getting called up by a bigger academy. He left Evreux (5th tier of the French football league system) to Valenciennes FC (2nd tier of French football league system).

While at Valenciennes FC, Dayot Upamecano felt it wasn’t about being the best but having a rage in him in every game. Sometimes he was told to play in the middle, which he did well, even scoring goals. No matter where the coach put him, he played, with all his strength and maturity. Valenciennes was indeed a very good memory for the rising defender who is pictured with his friend and academy mate.
