Once again called to the Chambly group for the trip to Auxerre this Saturday (7 p.m.), he dreams of treading the lawn of the Abbé-Deschamps. The 45 minutes that Boubacari Doucouré played against Clermont (0-3), last Friday in Beauvais during the 7th day of Ligue 2, indeed opened up his appetite.
Entered into play at half-time in a role of sentry, the central defender of training has indeed disputed to play his very first minutes in Ligue 2. At 21 years old (since March 19) and a little more than three months later having signed his first pro contract on July 1.
A baptism of fire in the professional world which he had passed close by on two occasions. Last September 12, in Beauvais against Grenoble (1-2), and last season on December 20, 2019 during a trip to Le Havre (1-1) which had also earned him to know the traditional Camblysian-style hazing reserved for applicants. But each time, he had stayed on the bench. The third was therefore the right one for Gaharo’s little brother, integrated into the staff of Bruno Luzi in the summer of 2019 at the end of his career, and of the striker Lassana.
“When you’re young, obviously, you can’t claim too much, says the one everyone at the club calls Bacari or Bac. Even if in the back of my mind I wanted to play, you have to know how to be patient, to bide your time. I hope she has finally arrived. “
He ended his DUT in business and administration management in September 2019 at the end of the first year in order to devote himself to football, he is now rubbing his hands. “I’m not telling myself that it’s launched and that I’m going to impose myself as the holder, it would be pretentious on my part, indicates Boubacari Doucouré, in Chambly from the U 15. But I want to be as efficient as possible, I don’t do not hear me stop at this first entry in L 2. “
Deputy Gaharo Doucouré proud of his little brother
A new level climbed and new perspectives for the one who had made an appearance in the National, May 12, 2017. Entered into play in the 94th minute of the match against Les Herbiers, he had participated in the victory of Chambly on Vendée soil (1- 0) on Matchday 33, joining his two brothers on the pitch that day.
“He is serious, he has good sessions, he is rewarded. »The sentence is signed Gaharo Doucouré, coach version. “The goal is that he continues to have playing time,” he continues. And for that, he will not have to rest on his laurels, he will have to continue to work. »But, under his double hat, the big brother Gaharo Doucouré is not far away. “It is a pride that he plays at this level, knowing where it comes from, relishes the elder. He did not set up a training center. “
Things must therefore have jostled in the head of Boubacari Doucouré when Bruno Luzi announced the news to him, a few hours before the kick-off against Clermont. “He took me aside just before the talk and spoke to me,” remembers Boubacari Doucouré. He told me that I had made a good entry in Lens (Editor’s note: in friendly) in front of the sentry defense, that he had found me good at this position and that I would surely enter against Clermont. Playing in Ligue 2 in his training club is something special, and one that I will never forget. I measure the distance traveled. The executives encourage me to work. And I’m going to take inspiration from examples like Shaquil… ”
Turned pro in the summer of 2019, Shaquil Delos tasted six games last season, Chambly’s first in L 2, and played six of the seven games this season. There are still a few seasons, they were evolving on the same line, in defense, in youth. “We were together in U 19 Nationals, slips Boubacari Doucouré, and we find ourselves there in Ligue 2 in Chambly. We would never have thought at the time to play together in Ligue 2. We know where we come from. We savor. We laughed about it together during the warm-up against Clermont. “
“He’s making his way too,” says Shaquil Delos. He has worked a lot, he has qualities, he has a good head, can play in No.6 or central defender. It is versatile. He’s shy, but on the pitch he’s a really solid person. He’s quiet strength, and he’s a real soldier. “
