ABOUT

Corentin Tolisso is a french footballer who currently plays for Bundesliga club, Bayern Munich and the France national team. Born on 3rd August 1994 in Tarare, the young midfielder is known for his attacking instincts. The prodigy recently became the most expensive import in the history of Bundesliga after his move to Bayern for a whopping 41.5 million Euros.


Early Days


Footballing days began early for the Frenchman, when he joined Lyon’s academy as a thirteen year old in 2007. He was a part of local teams, Stade Amplepuisen and FC pays de l’Arbresle before his association with Lyon. Tolisso had to wait for six years before he was called for the Club’s senior team.


Debut


Corentin Tolisso made his debut for Lyon in August 2013 at the age of 20, when he came as a substitute in the 92nd minute in a match Ligue 1 match against Nice. He netted his first goal in 2014, in a Ligue 1 match against Bordeaux, carrying his team to 2-1 win.


After representing France in various youth levels including the U21 side, where he was the captain, Tolliso’s international debut came in 2017 in a 2-0 loss against Spain. He went to represent France in 5 more matches in the same year, without scoring a goal.


Rise to glory


Tolisso had a spectacular debut season with Lyon under Remi Garde, who made him play as a right-back. Tolisso made 25 appearances for the team, 14 of which came in Ligue 1 matches. The next season saw him cementing his spot in the squad by featuring in every Ligue 1 match along with netting 7 goals for his team. The 2015-2016 season saw him spending some time on the bench due to injuries but he still managed to score 5 goals from midfield.


Tolisso’s last season with Lyon was no less than a rollercoaster ride. While he got to captain’s armband in the absence of regular captain Maxime Gonalons, Tolisso also got his first red card when he was sent off for a foul on Fabien Lemoine during extra time. However his tally was still pretty impressive as he ended with 14 goals and 7 assists. He was also named in UEFA Europa League squad for the same season.


Performing brilliantly for four season, it was not surprising that Tolisso was pursued by a number of teams. However it did came as a surprise when he left Lyon as the club’s biggest transfer. He made his debut for Bayern Munich on 5th August 2017 in the supercup finals against Dortmund, where Bayern emerged as winners. Tolisso then went on to score on his Bundesliga debut against Bayer Leverkusen.


With Bayern in the Semi-finals of this year’s Champions League, it will be interesting to see how France’s newest footballing sensation fares.
