Who is Julien Rivière
Julien Rivière is 28y/o Frenchman born in the outskirts of Paris. After spending all his teenage years in the Paris Saint Germain youth academy, the promising youngster had his contract terminated and fell into a deep depression.
PSG Youth Academy
Julien was always a top athlete, a tricky winger who could embarrass defenders with his quick feet and amazing pace. After the disappointment at PSG, Julien couldn't motivate himself to train and began putting on weight. He lost his pace and when he turned 21,he was turned down again by PSG at a trial.
His career finished as soon as it started, he had the potential to succeed but was not mentally strong. He officially retired at the age of 27 after failing to secure a contact at any Ligue 1 clubs after multiple trials.
Julien faced financial problems and needed some income. He had been employed in several jobs but couldn't stay at it and knew his heart was in football. After finally being convinced by his family to earn his coaching badges, Julien did just so and is looking forward to the prospect of managing his own team.
