You expected we would stop with the interviews? Wrong! This week we arranged an interview with the legend Soufiane Bencok. Soufiane has some big goals in life. Curious? Read more!
Soufiane, you’re a legend in the game. What was the moment you started playing streetsoccer? What inspired you?
Oh thanks for calling me a legend! It was back in 2002, when my big brother showed me Touzani on KazaA lite. In this famous video I saw him doing Groundmoves, and I enjoyed Groundmoves more back then because I was still a soccer player back then. Right in the same year I saw Moesie Rebel, Mourad Boukhari & Jermaine Vanenburg practicing, which lead me to the park to try some tricks. The next thing I knew, I fell in love with Issy Hitman because he brings street soccer to the next level.
You won your first major price in 2009 and won a lot after it. What was your most important tournament win
I think the most important moment for me was back in 2013. I won Red Bull street style Belgium, European Street Cup Panna In Denmark, plus I won the World Footstyle Freestyle Chamionships in France. Nobody in the world wins major prices in street, as well as freestyle football. So for me: I’m proud of myself because I know it’s hard to do it again.
You’ve been mentioned as toughest opponent by players like Noah Kofi and Liicht. Who was your toughest opponent?
Haha I love those guys ♥️😍. To be honest, everybody is hard to play against, so for me, my hardest opponent is myself! Because if you believe in yourself, you can win or destroy everybody. If I have to give a name for toughest opponent I would say the stress!
