First professional contract for Mamadou Coulibaly
Mamadou Coulibaly, the talented midfielder, has been a member of the AS Monaco Academy since the summer of 2019. Born in Paris, Mamadou Coulibaly, who turned 18 years old April the 21st, has previously played for FC Sevran, FC Villepinte and the Epinay-sur-Seine Football Academy.
Already qualified for U19 championship playoffs
A member of the U19 squad, the midfielder has been selected 21 times by his coach Frédéric Barilaro this season. His ability to be decisive (9 goals and 2 assists) as well as his overall performances make him one of the pillars of the squad in the excellent season of the young Monegasque team.
Leaders of group D, and seven points ahead of their closest pursuers after 25 matches played, the Rouge et Blanc are already assured of playing in the playoffs. In addition, Mamadou Coulibaly has already been involved with the French national team, having taken part in a training session with the Tricolores’ U16s in 2019.
