Prior to establishing his own agency, Mikael was head of football at a London-based firm representing a range of football stars including David Luiz, Philippe Coutinho, Willian, Richarlison, Layvin Kurzawa and Riyad Mahrez among others.
In 2015, Mikael accepted an offer to become director of football Stade Rennais FC after graduating from Limoges University with a Masters in Sports Management.
Mikael retired in 2014 after a hugely successful career as a world-class footballer and having won five Premier League titles, the UEFA Champions League, FIFA World Club Cup, FA Cup, League Cup, two Community Shields as well as two FIFA Confederations Cups.
Starting his career at Stade Rennais FC, Mikael moved to Inter Milan before spending nine seasons at Manchester United under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson. In May 2008, Mikael signed for Arsenal and played for two seasons under Arsène Wenger before moving to Germany to join SV Werder Bremen.

On the international front, Mikael was selected to represent his native France over 40 times, and was part of the team that won the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2001 and 2003, and runners up in the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany.
"Mikaël is a fantastic athlete and a great man. He went on to be a brilliant player for me and served the club for nine years. Mikaël was a consummate professional, had the respect of everyone he worked with, and was a key part of a very successful period for Manchester United.
When I heard he was setting up his own programme I was really pleased. Mikaël has a great understanding of football so I have no doubt that his project will be a success."
