The Swiss Army Knife

Former Marcet player Eliott Barrois dazzles with his versatility as a winger while bringing his talent to RCD Mallorca.

Eliott Barrois has football in his blood. He has been playing since the age of five in his native Switzerland and has come a long way despite his young age. He is an agile left-winger who can cover both flanks. He stands out for his technique, spatial awareness, and vision of the game. And, when needed, he is diligent in defense too.

He began playing as a child in his hometown for US Port-Valais and at the age of 12, he joined FC Sion, a team in the Swiss second division. “During the summer of 2021, I participated in a Marcet ‘stage,’ it went very well, and they offered to stay,” recalls the winger. He adds, “I got to participate in the Virraeal Cup that we ended up winning.”

Despite being a forward, Eliott is a hardworking player in defense.

“My time at Marcet was one of constant growth. I learned a lot as a player and as a person, about the values that Marcet promotes: humility, sacrifice, and hard work. Also, about what I need to do to achieve my goal of becoming a professional footballer,” he recalls from his time at the Academy, naming games and tournaments against renowned European teams.

After his time at Marcet, he moved to the Honor Division of CF Damm, their highest youth category. “There I could compete on equal terms with teams like Barcelona, Espanyol, Zaragoza, and Girona, among others. We even won the Catalonia Cup against Espanyol and I had the luxury of scoring one of the goals,” says the excited Barrois.

At CF Damm, Eliott had the luxury of scoring a fantastic goal in the final of the Copa Cataluña.

His impressive performances, both at Marcet and Damm, caught the attention of RCD Mallorca. “It was my representative who informed me of the interest. I couldn’t believe that such a big club wanted me. The first thing I did was call my mother and tell her the news. I am proud to play for Mallorca and want to repay the trust they have placed in me,” says the Swiss forward.

Eliott aims to adapt well to his new life in Mallorca, integrate into the team, and make good friends along the way. ‘I’ll give my best in every training session and match. Work day by day to fulfill my dream of being called up to the first team” concludes the footballer.
