Football career[edit]

Rakotoharisoa began his career, at age 6, playing for his hometown club Union Fontainaise Foot in the commune of Fontaine-la-Mallet. Union Fontainaise serves as a local feeder club for Le Havre. Following a five-year stint at the club, he transferred to Le Havre and began playing in the club's youth academy. While at the academy, Rakotoharisoa divided his time between football and education starring for Le Havre's under-16 team and also attending Jeanne d'Arc de Saint-Adresse, a high school in his hometown.[1] Rakotoharisoa excelled on the youth level for Le Havre. He was a member of both the 2007–08 and 2008–09 Le Havre under-18 sides that reached the semi-finals of the Coupe Gambardella. For the 2008–09 season, despite being only 17 years old, he was promoted to the club's Championnat de France amateur team.[2] He made 18 total appearances with the CFA team scoring no goals.

Rakotoharisoa was given the opportunity to train with the senior team for the 2009–10 season, though he was still limited to playing in the reserves. After appearing on the bench for several matches during the season, he finally made his debut on 27 November 2009 in a 1–0 victory over AC Ajaccio coming on as a substitute in the 85th minute.[3] The following week, against Caen, he appeared as a late match substitute again, though Le Havre lost the match 0–2.[4]
