Speaking to LesViolets.com, 18-year-old Cameroonian central midfielder Steve Mvoue confirmed that he is joining bottom of Ligue 1 side Toulouse FC this summer.
“I have chosen TFC, because it is a club that knows where I have come from.”
Mvoue has spent multiple stints with Les Violets on a trial basis over the last two years, with his brother Stéphane Zobo also currently at the club, who is a 19-year-old attacker currently playing for TFC’s reserve team in the French 5th division.
“I had trials with PSG, Lens, Monaco and Toulouse. Other clubs were interested in me joining you. It is my agent who dealt with all that. I chose Toulouse, because it is a bit the club that knows where I have come from. My first trial here occurred back in 2017. I came back in 2018 and 2019 where I did pre-season. Since, I have come to train here from time to time. It is a club where I feel good, where I know people. These elements motivated me to sign here.”
He also confirmed that Paul Pogba is his idol:
“My model is Paul Pogba. I am technical, I have good vision and read the game well, a strong shot and athletic capacities. My weak points? I still need to improve a lot tactically and in my concentration. The coaches who have already rubbed shoulders with me in Toulouse have been making me work on that.”
