A PATH STREWN WITH PITFALLS…

Benoit Duval has been at the heart of soccer since he was very young. This expert in the position of goalkeeper made his debut at Boulogne-sur-Mer FC before joining the training center of R.C Lens, where he was able to play in the U15 and U17 National. After a brief stint as a professional player, Benoit was finally forced to give up his dreams. Physical problems, including several injuries, forced him to stay away from the field for a while.

But that didn’t stop him from bouncing back! Today, he has been coaching the goalkeepers of the professional team of Pau FC, which is playing in Ligue 2, for 2 years now. Beyond his journey, it is really his feedback that Benoit shares with you. This will allow you to avoid repeating the same mistakes, and thus reach the ultimate dream: to become a professional footballer one day.
