Sylvain N'Diaye

Date of birth25 June 1976
Place of birthParis
NationalitySenegalese
Weight81 kg
Height1.78 m
PositionMidfielder

Born in Paris he qualifies to play for Senegal via one of his grandfathers. He began his playing career at Bordeaux in the 1996-1997 season but after playing only one match he was loaned to Martigues, AA Ghent (Belgium) and Toulouse before signing for Lille at the start of the 2000-2001 season. Consistent performances in midfield led to him being noticed by Senegal coach Bruno Metsu and he was persuaded to pledge himself to play for Senegal just before the African Nations' Cup Finals. He took part in several of the matches but is an unlikely starter and may take part from the bench.
