Adrien Rabiot is a professional footballer who plays for the French national team. Born on the 3rd of February, 1995 in Saint Maurice, Rabiot is a midfielder. The 22-year old currently plays for Paris St. Germain F.C.
Rabiot started playing football at the tender age of 6. He had two spells at US Créteil Lusitanos and a few months at Manchester City. The midfielder impressed the coaches wherever he went and in 2010 he earned a place in the youth ranks of Paris St. Germain.
Rabiot’s exploits at the junior level earned him a place in the French Youth national team. He has represented France at the U16, U17, U19, U19, U20 and U21 level. The level of accuracy in his passing made him a player to watch out for.
Adrien Rabiot made his senior debut on the 15th of November 2016 against Ivory Coast in a friendly clash. The game ended in a 0-0 draw. Rabiot did not have a great outing as he suffered a hamstring injury that forced him out of game after 78 minutes. He has played five matches for the senior team and is yet to score a goal for his country.
Rise to Glory
Rabiot was performing well for PSG in the domestic league. He looked like a seasoned campaigner right from the start. He played an integral part from 2013 to 2015 when PSG won three consecutive domestic titles.
On 13th March, 2016, Rabiot scored a goal in 9-0 routing of Troyes AC that sealed the league title with eight games remaining.
The midfielder has won Coupe De France in the 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 season. He has also won Coupe de la Ligue with PSG in the 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 season. Considering that Rabiot is only 22, he has already filled his treasury with a lot of titles and has managed to stay with PSG for more than five years.
Though Rabiot has won many titles with PSG, he has remained inconsistent. He hasn’t scored many goals for his side and hasn’t had a dominant performance on consistent basis. Rabiot has failed to garner interest from bigger clubs where he could get much more game time.
However, with age on his side, Adrien Rabiot can work on his game to become a leader at his club and take a step forward in his career.
