Lenny Lacroix moved to FC Metz academy from FC Mulhouse in 2017. Metz youth system is considered to be one of the best in France. Lacroix signed his first professional contract with Metz in December 2019 and a few days later he sat on the first-team bench for the first time in a Ligue 2 fixture against Dijon. Currently, he is a starter for the reserves team playing in National 2 but his first-team debut seems to be only a matter of time.
