Why is there a ‘y’ in this sentence?

Il ne joue pas souvent au foot, et toi ? -Je n'y joue pas souvent non plus.

I don’t play often either.

This is one of the examples above.

This relates to:
Ne ... pas non plus = Not ... either (negation) -

Hi Jocelyn,


The expression is 'jouer à'..., the y replaces 'au foot'.


Take a look at the following lesson for more examples.
