Sambou YATABARE to Standard


Standard de Liège, Olympiakos Piraeus and Sambou YATABARE have reached an agreement : the French-Mainese midfielder will be on loan to our club for this season 2015-2016 with a purchase option.

Sambou, born in Beauvais (France) on the 2nd of March 1989 (26 years old), began his professional career in 2008 at SM Caen before joining AS Monaco and SC Bastia. In 2013, he was to transferred to Olympiakos Piraeus in Greece. After that, he was loaned to SC Bastia in 2014 and EA Guingamp last season.

Sambou is a Malinese international as well (21 caps/2 goals).

Axel LAWAREE : “Sambou is a player that we didn't have yet in our squad. Thanks to his length and his speed, he's able to go quickly to the other side of the field and to enter the penalty area of the opponent. He's an experienced player who will also guide our young players."

Standard de Liège would like to give a warm welcome to Sambou Yatabare and wishes him all the best at our club.
