It’s what you could call a dream week. In just a few days, Mathyas Randriamamy left the PSG training center and experienced a nice boost in his young career. Aged 17, one of the under-19 goalkeepers of the capital club was summoned by Thomas Tuchel for his first professional group in Ligue 1 against Dijon (4-0) to replace Alexandre Letellier, who is Covid positive -19. Three days later, he is still in the group for the trip to Istanbul (Turkey) in the Champions League.
And it is sitting just behind Kylian Mbappé in the PSG plane that Mathyas Randriamamy made the flight to his first experience in C1. Coming from the 2003 generation, the porter from Hauts-de-Seine joined the red and blue club in 2016 after several years at Paris FC. Its progression is linear.
In 2017, he was elected best goalkeeper of an international tournament with the under 14s, beating OM on penalties in the final. From September 2018, at about 15 years and 5 months, he had his first training with the professional group at Camp des Loges during an international break.
This season, Randriamamy comes to strengthen the under-19s, behind goalkeepers Denis Franchi or Romain Sallard, after ten games played with the under-17s last season. With an aspiring contract which ends next June, Randriamamy is making the most of these moments with the first team while waiting for a pro contract proposal.
And as happiness never comes alone, Mathyas Randriamamy was called for the first time with the selection of Madagascar, the country of origin of his parents. Called by coach Nicolas Dupuis, quarter-finalist of the African Cup of Nations in 2019, Randriamamy will be in the group for a double confrontation against Côte d’Ivoire in November.
