On April 6, 2013, at Stadium Municipal, he collected the first red card of his career after a tackle on Cheikh M'Bengue of Toulouse FC.

On July 13, 2013, 15 years and one day after the victory of France national football team at the 1998 FIFA World Cup, he won with France national under-20 football team, 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup by defeating Istanbul, Uruguay national under-20 football team.
