About Samuel Umtiti

Who is Samuel Umtiti?

Samuel Umtiti is 26-years-old, born on 14 November 1993, and is a left-footed professional football player from France. Born in Yaoundé, Samuel Umtiti has also played in Coupe de France for Lyon.

Samuel Umtiti's move to Barcelona from Lyon raised some eyebrows at the time, but the French stopper has barely put a foot out of place since and looks completely at home at the Camp Nou. Lyon blooded him at centre-back at the age of just 18, and he was given the time and understanding to develop his game over four-and-a-half seasons to become equally adept at the physical side of the game as he is at playing out with the ball. Barcelona brought him and partnered him with Gerard Pique, and the two have struck an excellent understanding as Barca lost just a single league game in the entire season. But the pinnacle was Umtiti's displays with France as Les Bleus strolled to a well-deserved World Cup triumph in 2018. Umtiti has achieved so much, yet has many more years to get better. He currently plays as a Defender (Centre) in Primera Division for club Barcelona.
