Although there is not much information to be found, it is obvious that Aliou Coly currently is one of the hottest strikers in the local Senegalese league. Coly plays for Casa Sport, arguably the best club in Senegal, and also the club of Stéphane Badji, presented in my post from 04.11.2010, and Emile Paul Tendeng, presented in my post from 10.10.2010.

As far as I know, Coly made his debut for Casa Sport in the 2010-season, being a rather peripheral part of the team, scoring no goals in the league.

He did however make several impressive performances in other tournaments, scoring goals in the Coupe de Senegal (August 2010, against ASC La Linguère) and the Tournoi de l’Assemblée Nationale (December 2010, against ASC Niary Tally).

Coly also made his mark in the so-called WAFU Cup, scoring two goals against Togolese side AC Sèmassi Sokodé in December 2010.

Coly’s start to the 2010-2011 season has been very promising. He scored goals against Jeanne D’Arc in Round 3 and against ASC Niary Tally in Round 5. He forms a strong attacking pair together with Alouise Thiaw, who also has two league goals to his name. In Casa’s last match, against ASC Niary Tally on 16.01.2011, Emile Paul Tendeng made a return to the side as a substitute. In principle, there is only room for two of the three but Coly’s chances are good.

Little is known about his qualities as a player but Coly is a center forward and apparently a clinical finisher. His date of birth is still unknown, but he is most likely a young player.

Coly was earlier this month rewarded for his performances by being included in the Senegal U-23 national football team – a great achievement for a young player who is still in the early stages of what seems to be a promising career in football.


  1. Sweet.

    Good luck in Molde Fk, Aliou:)
