In 2006 he left the youth academy of the flagship of the Alsatian football and went into the next generation of Sporting Schiltigheim and a year later to Mars Bischheim. Strasbourg is situated on the border with Germany; on the recommendation of a friend, he went into the youth of the German amateur side Offenburger FV.[7] In a game in the A-youth-Bundesliga against SC Freiburg, he was the coach of the Freiburg side, Christian Streich, on and convinced him with his performance.[7] Finally to the 2008–09 season, he joined the youth academy of SC Freiburg and won in his first season, the DFB-Pokal in the A-youth.[7]
