Total Player 2023 by Florian Bruzzo

November 8, 2023

The French national team had another successful summer. France continues raising the level of its performance as the Paris Games approach.

This summer, France, guided by Florian Bruzzo, won 6th place in Fukuoka, which is the best-ever result of French water polo in the World Championships.

Bruzzo, who coached the French male national team at the 2016 Olympic Games, was France’s women’s head coach for a while. He returned to the male team in 2021. Last year, France finished 4th in the World League and 6th at the European Championships.

I don’t want to pick a French player to the list, to be fair, Bruzzo underlined before voting.
