The French football player Samuel Umtiti is a defender at Lyon.
His training began at the same club. In 2011 the player already began appearing in the professional group under the command of Claude Puel; however he could not participate in the official matches at the beginning.
On 8 January 2012 Umtiti took part in his first game as a first-team player in the 32nd final of the French cup against the team Lyon Duchere. Six days later he had his first game in the Ligue in a match against Montpellier. By the beginning of 2012 the coach had begun to select the player to appear in the team, which helped to get prize-winning places in the Cup despite certain weak points of Umtiti’s play.
On 30th March 2012 Lyon signed a professional contract with Umtiti.
