Adrien Rabiot Facts
- Adrien’s youth career started in 2001 when, as a 6-year-old, he joined US Créteil-Lusitanos, a French professional club based in Créteil, a southeastern suburb of Paris. He was there until 2003 when he joined, briefly, a team named Alfortville based in the Alfortville commune in the southeastern suburbs of Paris. He returned to US Créteil-Lusitanos in 2004 and stayed there until 2008.
- In 2008, he also spent a few months in the youth system of the English behemoth Manchester City F.C. Between 2008 and 2009, for a brief spell, he joined the youth team of the French professional club Pau FC. Between 2009 and 2010, he was a part of the youth system of another French club called Pôle Espoirs.
- In 2010, Adrien joined the Paris Saint-Germain Academy, the youth system of Paris Saint-Germain F.C., a top-flight professional soccer club in France. By 2012, he began making appearances for both Paris Saint-Germain B (the reserve team of Paris Saint-Germain F.C.) and the senior-level first team of Paris Saint-Germain F.C.
- At the international level, Adrien represented France at the under-16 (2010), under-17 (2011–2012), under-18 (2012), under-19 (2012–2013), under-20 (2014), and under-21 (2013–2016) tiers before making his senior national debut in November 2016.
- He was a vital member of the French squad that finished as the runner-up at the 2013 edition of the UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) European Under-19 Championship. He was included in the ‘Team of the Tournament’ for his performances.
- Notorious for his behavior and attitude off the pitch, Adrien was sanctioned and penalized by the Fédération Française de Football (the governing body for soccer in France) in May 2018 after he refused to follow the French national team’s training program. This was after he was put on the standby/reserve list of the French squad for the 2018 edition of the FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) World Cup and controversially refused to accept this decision by the team management.
- He was also suspended by Paris Saint-Germain F.C. for about 2 weeks in mid-March 2019 for going to a nightclub after a 3–1 loss to English titans Manchester United F.C. in the pre-quarterfinal stage of the UEFA Champions League (the most prestigious club competition in European soccer).
- Representing France, Adrien won the 2020-21 edition of the UEFA Nations League, the 2nd season of a continental competition that involves the men’s national teams of the 55 members of the UEFA.
- In November 2022, he scored France’s first goal of the 2022 edition of the FIFA World Cup – in the team’s opening group-stage encounter against Australia. The team went on to reach the final of the tournament. This was the 4th occasion that France had achieved this feat. The previous 3 such occasions were in 1998 (champion), 2006 (runner-up), and 2018 (champion).
