A few weeks ago, he expressed his desire to play in Haute-Garonne: “The current generation in Toulouse is exceptional, he explained.

I like to compare this team to Cristiano Ronaldo's Real Madrid.

They are titled, they win everything.

Inevitably, it makes you want to be part of it.


Born in Isère, Capuozzo was trained at FC Grenoble, with which he finished top scorer in Pro D2 during the 2020-2021 season.

This very good raiser honored his first two selections with the Italian team last March, bringing on an individual feat the test of victory in Wales (22-21) during the last day of the Tournament of the six nations.

“Like a certain Vincent Clerc, also from Grenoble, Ange has the ideal profile to play at the Toulouse stadium,” commented the president of the Rouge et Noir Didier Lacroix.

“We have already had a glimpse of his talent by following his performances in Pro D2 and we are now looking forward to seeing how he will fit into the group and the game plan established by the staff”, he added.

Despite the announced retirement of Maxime Médard, Capuozzo will face stiff competition at Toulouse next season at the back with French internationals Thomas Ramos and Melvyn Jaminet.

But he is also capable of playing on the wing, where Stade Toulousain lacked depth this season after the retirement of Yoann Huget and that of South African star Cheslin Kolbe for Toulon.
