7 goals

Abdou Latif Guenoune – AS Douanes (5 of the goals are scored for ASC Dahra)

The current top goalscorer of the Ligue 1 Senegal is obviously a good candidate for the “revelation of the season-award”. Guenoune is apparently a powerful striker and started the season for the newly promoted club ASC Dahra, which he joined from ASFA Dakar. After five goals for ASC Dahra, Guenoune joined the more ambitious side AS Douanes in May 2011. Guenoune has scored two goals in his first three appearances for AS Douanes. As far as I know, this is the first season at top level for Guenoune.

6 goals

The tall, muscular striker, born 02.04.1979, is one of the stars of the Senegal Beach Soccer team. He has been fundamental to the current success of US Ouakam. Koukpaki is 193 centimeters and 84 kilos and is a handful for any defence. The picture is of a celebrating Koukpaki and is taken from

Djibril Sidibé – ASC Diaraf

Sibibé is often the captain of ASC Diaraf. The central midfielder is arguably one of the best players in the league.
