FC Metz and Génération Foot extend the adventure

For 20 years, the Garnet club has relied on its Senegalese academy to find “nuggets”. A win-win partnership between the two clubs which will be relevant for the next ten years.

For 20 years, the Garnet club has relied on its Senegalese academy to find “nuggets”. A win-win partnership between the two clubs which will be relevant for the next ten years.

Started in 2003 under the aegis of Carlo Molinari, the partnership between Metz and Génération Foot is renewed for the next ten years. Just before the start of the match between the Grenats and Saint-Etienne, Bernard Serin, the president of FC Metz, Mady Touré, the president of Génération Foot and Olivier Perrin, general manager of the Metz training, formalized the signing of the new convention.

This is how Metz will continue to support the academy based in Deni Biram Ndao in order to help it achieve its sporting ambitions – the first team plays in Division 1 -, as social. As a reminder, it was in 2013 that the new training center was inaugurated. It has been equipped with a high school since 2019.


The Messins start their career in Ligue 1 this Sunday (3 p.m.) with the reception of Monaco. A hell of a customer for an eleven garnet not varnished by the start of the calendar. Vincent Hognon does not rule out using Habib Diallo. Denis Balbir presents the poster.


“The new convention defines sports, administrative and economic governance,” said Bernard Serin. “It also provides for the investments that will be made in the future, such as the financing of a synthetic pitch, additional apartment buildings as well as electric and water autonomy so that the center is completely independent. ”

At the origin of the founding of Generation Foot in 2000, Mady Touré indicated that “at the time, these young people were neglected in nature, I vouched for the creation of this training center. The aim is to train world-class players ”. As a reminder, this partnership notably enabled the emergence of Emmanuel Adebayor, Diafra Sakho, Papiss Cissé, Ismaïla Sarr and of course Sadio Mané.
