Adrien Truffert explains why he did not choose the Belgian selection

September 2022, then only 19 years old, Adrien Truffert is called by Didier Deschamps. The Rennes left defender must compensate for numerous injuries in this position and comes into play against Denmark. Since then, the Rennais has not played again for the A, but continues to delight the Espoirs. Called again by Thierry Henry for the next gathering, Adrien Truffert could have chosen a completely different selection. The native of Liège could have played for Belgium. The Red Devils coach at the time even contacted him.

We spoke on the phone. I’m not saying it was a difficult choice, but I feel more French than Belgian. So for me the choice of the French team was carefully considered. I made all my selections in the French teams. My whole family is French. I’m not even sure if there is a Belgian in my family. I was born there of course, but I feel much more French, he told Free Ligue 1.
