Bienvenue, or “Benny” as he’s more commonly known, is an exciting young forward and right winger who joined FCPS in January 2020 from Czech side MFK Vyskov. A full Burundi international, Benny made his debut in a World Cup qualifier against Tanzania in September 2019. He was first noticed after winning the Golden Boot in Aigle Noir FC’s Burundi Premier League title-winning season in 2018-19, earning him a move to Europe. Although, Benny spent most of 2019 on loan in the United States playing for Atlanta United 2 in the United Soccer League, impressing with seven goals. With such a resume at such a young age, Benni is one of the brightest talents in the FCPS squad.

About me:

“My first memory of football was watching my father play when I was a nine-year-old! In my spare time I enjoy listening to music and working out. I love living in Austria as it’s very calm and the people are very nice to me, which makes the FC Pinzgau project the ideal place for me to better myself and advance my career.”
