1. I’m scared of …

“Dogs. I don’t like dogs! I’m scared. I don’t like them. I don’t know what the dog is thinking. Maybe the dog will bite me.”

2. The best piece of life advice I have ever received …

“Don’t forget where you come from. Because, in France, I have my family. I have my friends. I need to keep this in my mind, because when you play football, if you forget where you come from, if you forget your family, that is not good.”

3. The coolest place I have lived …

“Maybe Minneapolis. I like! Just, the winter is very bad. But, I like it.”

4. On the significance behind my number …

“Before I picked 19, I wanted to pick 22 because it was my daughter’s birthday. When 22 was not available, I picked 19 because I have a friend from the Madagascar National Team that is the same number like me. So, I say, okay, I take the same number like you, I’ll take 19.”

5. My all-time favorite TV show …

Friends is my favorite TV show. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”

“My kids. It’s easy! My kids, and that’s it. My family. That’s it.”

8. My favorite thing to shop for is …

“Shoes. Every time I go shopping, I have to buy shoes.”

9. Something I always have with me when I travel is …

“My headphones because I listen to a lot of music. Every time, I listen to music. If I don’t have it when I travel, I am mad. I don’t have a favorite music, but I can say I listen to every music.”

10. My daily routine is …

“I wake up, and every morning I play with my kid. Because when I wake up, my kid is already awake. So I play with her before I go to training. My daughter is two and a half years old and my son is four months old.”
