Lalrempuia is one of those players who consider football the most important thing in their life and want to spend every possible moment of their life in pursuit of the game they cherish.
The young Mizo-lad started playing the game at the age of eleven and fell in love with football instantly.
Encouraged by his father, he started playing the game in his village and soon was playing for his local village team, Bazarveng FC. Inspired by his mentor, Flalbiakchhunga, who was his village coach and the person to whom he looked up to for guidance, Flalrempuia’s game steadily started improving and his performances were soon a notch better than his peers.
Thereafter, he got selected on the Under 14 District and went on to peak in Under 17.
In 2010 the youngster who loves to get into forward areas to score goals, was selected in the Maomit High School team for the Subroto Cup. It was here that PFC Youth Assistant coach Gift Raikhan, recognized his talent and selected him for a trial at PFC, spotted the young midfield.
The playmaker impressed the Pune FC staff during his trial, and soon was given a chance to join the academy, an opportunity which he grabbed gleefully with both hands.
The midfielder, who considers his family, which consists of his parents, elder sister and brother, as his inspiration to do well in football, now hopes to make the most of the opportunity granted to him by Pune FC and wants to one day play for the National team.
An expert free-kick taker, Lalrempuia consider Barcelona’s Xavi and Manchester United’s Paul Scholes as his footballing idols and hopes to one day ply his trade at Old Trafford, in the same position as his idol.
Away from football, the playmaker is a big fan of hip-hop music and has also fallen in love with the city of Pune and Pune FC, where he feels he has been provided with all the facilities required to become a good footballer.
Although a football fanatic, he feels he also could have a career as a table tennis player!
