Maxence Caqueret joined famous Olympique Lyonnais youth academy in 2012 from Chaponnay Marennes. He is a part of a very interesting generation of Lyon players born in 1999 and 2000 which includes, among others, Myziane Maolida, Amine Gouiri, Zachary Brault-Guillard, Mohamed Bahlouli, Mickael Almeida and Paul Devarrewaere. In 2016, he captained his team at the European U-17 Championship, where young “Les Bleus” made it to the quarter-final, but got knocked out by eventual champions Spain.



“He really puts a lot into it. He gets through a lot of work and he’s got a very pure technique. He scraps for the ball too and he can take out a whole defensive line with a single pass or a dribble.” 

(Gerard Bonneau, head of youth recruitment at Olympique Lyonnais)
