Weight77 kg

PositionGoalkeeper

This young keeper has rarely broken through to see first-team action at Monaco apart from a spell during the 1999-2000 season when he deputised for Fabien Barthez. He broke into the national side in 1999 but did not win another cap for two seasons. He spent the whole of the 2000-01 campaign out on loan with Second Division club AC Ajaccio but since his return he has been languishing in the reserves. A second-choice to Oumar Diallo for Senegal in recent seasons, he opted out of the squad for the 2000 African Nations Cup finals but is now close to becoming number one keeper for the Lions. He was voted the best goalkeeper in the African Nations Cup Finals in 2002 and will challenge for a starting spot after playing in four of the qualifying games for the 2002 World Cup finals, keeping a clean sheet on each occasion.
