Laporte documentary: City defender’s special return to his hometown Agen

Aymeric Laporte’s hometown club have revealed how the City player has given the opportunity for young footballers to follow in his footsteps.

The defender was born in the town of Agen in south-west France and played for his local club from the age of five.

In the latest documentary to come out of City Studios – Laporte ABC, which is out now – his former coach reveals how he is having an impact on the next generation.

The town’s stadium was renamed the Aymeric Laporte Stadium while a new training pitch is helping children to flourish.

“He stayed loyal to his home club, of course,” Dominque Dumens, SU Agen assistant manager says in the documentary. “You can’t forget half of your life like this. You can’t remove it from his life, it’s not possible.

“He’s a good kid, he’s got a good heart. We’ve known that for years.”

Our cameras followed Laporte when he returned with the Premier League trophy in the summer on the Club's 2022 Trophy Tour and met supporters.

He was also awarded the town’s medal saying: “It’s always a pleasure to come back to Agen and show the Premier League trophy to all the kids. I was born in this town, and it has a special place in my heart."
