Alphonse Areola Biography
Alphonse Areola was born on 27 February 1993, he is a French professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain. An academy graduate of PSG, he spent the early parts of his career on loan, enjoying spells with Lens, Bastia and La Liga side, Villarreal.
During his stint with the latter, Areola broke the club record for the longest period of play without conceding a goal, remaining unbeaten for a period of 620 minutes. He also represented France at every youth level and was part of the France U20 side that won the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2013.

Areola began playing football at the age of six for Entente Sportive des Petits Anges and spent seven years at his local club before signing for Ligue 1 side, Paris Saint-Germain.
When Areola was 15, and upon the advice of coaches in Paris, he enrolled at the Clairefontaine football centre in order to further his development. He returned to PSG the following year and signed his first professional contract with the Parisians in July 2009, putting pen to paper on a three-year deal.
On 18 May 2013, having progressed through the club’s academy, Areola made his senior debut for PSG, replacing first-choice goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu in the 48th minute of a 3–1 home win over Brest. PSG had been crowned Ligue 1 champions prior to the match and their opponents were already relegated.
He made his first start for the club the following weekend in a 3–1 win over Lorient, playing 61 minutes in what was the final match of the season before being substituted for fourth-choice ‘keeper Ronan Le Crom, who was sent off later in the match for a foul on Julien Quercia.
2016–present: Return to PSG
Following his successful stint in Spain, Areola returned to PSG for the 2016–17 Ligue 1 season. He began the campaign as understudy to German keeper Kevin Trapp, who had signed the season before, and was in PSG’s match-day squad for their 4–1 Trophée des Champions victory over Lyon. He made his first appearance following his return on 13 September in a 1–1 Champions League draw with Arsenal, in what was also his debut in the competition.
Following the match against Arsenal, Areola established himself as PSG’s first-choice goalkeeper and had kept four clean sheets in eight appearances by mid-October. However, he suffered a downturn in form soon after and ultimately relinquished his place to Trapp after a string of matches in December in which he conceded 10 goals from just 11 shots faced.
In April the following year, he was an unused substitute as PSG beat Monaco 4–1 to claim a record fourth straight Coupe de la Ligue title but started in a 1–0 win over Angers which saw PSG lift the Coupe de France title the following month.
The following season, on 29 July 2017, Areola earned his second Trophée des Champions medal when he started in a 2–1 win over Monaco which saw PSG claim their fifth consecutive title.
He continued the season as PSG’s undisputed goalkeeper in the league and Europe, with Trapp favoured in cup competitions, and was a regular feature in the club’s record-breaking progression through the group stages of the Champions League. With Areola in goal, PSG conceded just once in their opening five matches and scored 24 goals, the most ever by a club in the group stages of the competition.
On 31 March 2018, in a repeat of the previous seasons’s final, Areola was an unused substitute as PSG retained the Coupe de la Ligue title with a 3–0 win over Monaco. The following month, on 15 April, he started in goal as PSG again defeated Monaco, who were the reigning league champions, 7–1 to claim the Ligue 1 title.
The club completed a domestic treble on 8 May when they defeated third division side Les Herbiers to lift the Coupe de France trophy for a record fourth consecutive season; though Areola was an unused substitute in the final.
Alphonse Areola Wife – Marrion Areola
With a very discreet naturalness, Alphonse Areola is clearly in the crowd at PSG. Anxious to talk about him in the field, the young Parisian goalkeeper is not a client of interviews and other media releases. His companion, Marrion, looks like him. Very discreet, she rarely appears alongside her companion and does not make waves when she surveys the stands of Ligue 1 to follow the performances of Parisians.
Married since 2014, the couple has two children (two little girls, Ayleen-Grace born in 2015 and Aymma-Lyse born this year, January 2nd). We know very little about Marrion, if not his devouring passion for his family. The young lady, of Filipino and Lebanese origin, however, stood out once, when the newspaper L’Equipe evoked his publications on Instagram (an article supposedly nostalgic highlighting the super season of his companion, Villarreal).
Her reaction had not lacked spice but she remained, as always, very discreet. Buzzsport therefore allows you to make presentations without big sentences, just in picture …

Alphonse Areola: “It is #1 at PSG or nothing.”
Speaking in an interview with Le Parisien, PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola discussed his plans for next season.
“The next step of my career at PSG will be sorted out after the World Cup. For the moment, I have not met with the club’s representatives. I do not know what they want to do. One thing is certain: if I am offered the chance to stay at PSG, then I will accept without hesitation. I am here. PSG is my club, ever since I was a kid. But we also know that it is sometimes difficult to stay in the club where you started. All of the right criteria need to be present. Now, if I am not allowed to keep the same amount of playing time, then things will certainly be different.”
He was then asked if he would require to be the number 1 goalkeeper in order to stay at PSG:
“That’s it. Because if I do not stay on as number 1, that would mean that the season I have just had would be pointless.”

2018 World Cup has Pinoy flavor with France GK Alphonse Areola
ABS-CBN Sports – 5 Jun 2018
At 25 years old, Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Alphonse Areola is already a folk hero of sorts, especially to fans of the France U-20 team, but a missed opportunity for Philippine football.
The French keeper, whose parents are both of Filipino descent, was the hero in Les Bleus’ magical run to the title at the U-20 World Cup back in 2013.
Areola made pressure-packed stops in the penalty shootout against Uruguay to help France hoist its first-ever U-20 championship.
As far back as 2011, Dan Palami had already asked the 6’5″ keeper to consider suiting up for the Azkals.
Seven years later, Areola is now a decorated member of the French national youth squad, and is poised to make his mark in the biggest stage of international football.
Areola will be backstopping French shotstoppers like Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris and Steve Mandanda of Olympique Marseille as Les Bleus looks to capture its first World Cup title in 20 years.
