Damet : "On the bench, you don't have time to think that you're 29"

After landing in Montreal a few years ago to visit a friend, Yoann Damet never came back. Meanwhile, the Frenchman has helped to set up the Impact's pre-academy, and became, last spring, the youngest manager in the history of the MLS, at 29, at FC Cincinnati. Now an assistant-coach in the Ohio-based club, he recalls his experience in a team which had a difficult first season in the MLS.

You were born in Marseille, in the early 1990's. Did it play a part in developing your passion for football ?
I was born in Marseille, but in the end, I didn't spend a lot of time there. My father was transferred to Burgundy when I was three years old.

For me, once I started enjoying football, I couldn't get rid of it, it was like some sort of drug. It's an addictive thing.

Are there teams that you admired more than others, at the beginning ?
It happened in two phases, actually. First, there was my playing career, where sometimes, you don't take the step back which is necessary to analyse the game. And then my coaching career, where I really started to take an interest in the game itself. In the end, it happened pretty quickly because I was in charge of my first team at the age of 16. The age of 16, for me, was in the mid-2000's, so the birth of Guardiola's Barcelona, Mourinho's Chelsea, fascinating things for a teenager.
