The French landing in LaLiga. A matter of style

The first French player to come to Spain was Raymond Kopa. In the 1950s soccer was nowhere near the most popular sport in France. With his cuts, with his joy to play, Kopa brought football closer to a sophisticated culture, more used to celebrating art, literature, freedom, than sport. He was the creator of football champagne, bubble football, football worth celebrating. He joined Real Madrid in 1956 and won three European Cups in a row, with teammates such as Alfredo di Stéfano and Paco Gento. Without knowing it, the elusive and technical Kopa had begun to sculpt the style of French footballer who would triumph in Spain for the next 70 years: Zidane, Henry, Benzema, Griezmann ... 153 players from that country have passed through the elite of Spanish football.

⚽️ Good Morning! Today I am writing about soccer, although it is not really about soccer. Many people want to be a footballer as a child and with age they discover that it is tremendously difficult. But it is not as difficult for everyone: those born in January have twice as many options as those in December. It is a well known phenomenon.
