Age does not matter at Stade de Reims. A policy beneficial to many young players of the Champagne club such as Nathanael Mbuku (19 years old), El Bilal Touré (19 years old) or even Hugo Ekitike (19 years old). Since the start of the season, one of the most prominent young people on the Reims side remains Alexis Flips (21), author of an excellent start in this 2021-2022 exercise in Ligue 1. Trained in Lille and transferred to Reims to the summer of 2020 after a 19-20 season spent on loan at Ajaccio in Ligue 2, the eccentric midfielder will not have taken long to be promoted from the reserve to the pro team on the side of Auguste Delaune.

David Guion, then coach of Reims, decided to give him a chance on the lawn of Nîmes on May 2, on the occasion of the 35th day of L1 edition 20-21. A choice that paid off, because that evening, he found the net for his first appearance in the first division, and this, in the space of 17 minutes of play only allowing his people to leave with a point from Costières (2- 2). “I like his nerve, through what he shows in training. I even hesitated to have him play from the start because he shows us beautiful things. I knew that with his risk taking, he was able to try things, ”explained the former SDR coach at a press conference.
