Boulaye Dia Bio
From the start, there was no such thing as trying to make it as a professional soccer player. Even when he was young, only his older brothers played football. The boys knew the risks because they didn’t want to see their dad fail at soccer.
But it was God’s will for him to become a professional football player. Once upon a time, Boulaye Dia’s family got lucky when they were chosen to play in a 5-player game. We call it the tournament for the Oyonnax neighborhood.
The rest of Boulaye’s family agreed, but his father did not. Harouna, his oldest brother, says that Boulaye’s dad and four brothers joined in after convincing him to do so. They went with a friend who stayed at the goalpost. Boulaye Dia’s family won the tournament, which made everyone happy. They beat many other teams.

On July 13, 2021, Villarreal announced that they had signed Dia from Stade Reims on a five-year deal. When he played his first game for Villareal, against Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup in 2021, he got a lot of praise for how well he did.
