Benoît Trémoulinas

FC Girondins de Bordeaux

Often dubbed the 'new Bixente Lizarazu', FC Girondins de Bordeaux left-back Benoît Trémoulinas has developed fast under Laurent Blanc's tutelage and was an important contributor to the club's 2008/09 Ligue 1 triumph. An intelligent, adventurous full-back, he is also blessed with considerable pace.

• Born in Bordeaux to a mother from the island of Reunion, he joined Les Hommes au Scapulaire in his early teens and worked his way through the various age groups.

• Turned professional in 2006 and was handed his debut in August 2007 by newly arrived coach Blanc.

• Limited Ligue 1 outings in 2007/08 but regularly used in the UEFA Cup, making seven starts − and scoring one goal − before he was sent off in the round of 32 elimination by RSC Anderlecht.

• Replaced Franck Jurietti as Bordeaux's first-choice left-back during course of title-winning 2008/09 campaign, making 24 starts.

• Ever-present in Bordeaux's first five group games of 2009/10 UEFA Champions League.
