Finally ! Theo Burnouf been waiting for this moment for years. He will finally be able to find his friends from Cliff on the same football field, this Sunday, September 25, 2022. The native of the small town of 8,000 inhabitants, who still lives there like many of his friends and family, had never faced his training club since he had left him. Ten years later, the small anomaly is about to be corrected. L’ASPTT Caenwhich the center forward joined this season, caused a move to the other lands of William the Conqueror.
Party in U17 for Avranches
Théo Burnouf welcomes the draw for this fourth round of the Coupe de France with undisguised pleasure.
It’s special, I hate it! I have childhood friends, like Maxime Hengbart, with whom I was in kindergarten, who still plays at Falaise. This will be an opportunity to meet on the field of honor. The picture is beautiful.
Since his departure from Falaise, Théo Burnouf’s career has been known for many episodes. The striker had joined Avranches and had distinguished himself so much in the U17 Nationals, finishing second top scorer in the group, that he had signed an aspiring contract with Laval. Another two-year contract as a professional intern held out to him, but some difficulties at school had “pulled the rug out from under him”.
A passage through Thaon then six years in Vire
Théo Burnouf then went back to Avranches, in U19 Nationals, before completely changing course by committing to Thaon (R3). “Without a diploma, without a sports project, we had to find the basics. I passed a BPJEPS in Thaon, where I was an educator in parallel. “The formation in hand, Théo Burnouf went back to the front on the sporting level by delighting Vire. Arrived in Regional 1, he left six years later in National 3.
I think we had covered the subject, whether it is the club or me.
Real estate negotiator in Caen, Théo Burnouf quickly turned to the PTT. “I told Laurent Dufour that the day I would return to Caen, it would be to play with him. I wanted to join a playful team and an ambitious club. I also appreciate the human proximity that exists here. »
At the relaunch at the PTT
At ASPTT Caen, Théo Burnouf left behind a season complicated by injuries. “2021 was a shitty year,” he sums up. I had ankle surgery and then I had three broken ribs. In National 3, when the team is created, it’s complicated to come back. “Playing time has been largely affected.
Since then, the Falaisien has “recovered” and hopes to show it in Caen, where he scored on the first day of R1 in Verson. However, it is Nicolas Camillo the number 1 in the position in a system with a single advanced attacker.
It’s a friend in life, competition is healthy. He is coming out of a very big half-season and it is legitimate that he is ahead of me. It will come… We can also play together.
This Sunday, Théo Burnouf will have the opportunity to express himself at home and he intends to seize it. “It will be a complicated match because it is a cup team. They won’t give up. I don’t have any particular pressure, just the desire to do well, like always playing. »
