JaraafTraditionally, ASC Diaraf is one of the most powerful clubs in Senegal. The Dakar-based club, also known as “ASC Jaraaf”, has won the Senegalese championship 11 times. ASC Diaraf had a rather disappointing 2013-season, finishing at fourth place, six points behind winners Diambars.

From my point of view, the following are the most interesting players at the club:

* 21-year striker Ibrahima Diop was rather unknown before the season. At the time of writing, after nine league goals, Diop is widely considered as the hottest prospect at ASC Diaraf. According to, Diop was a trialist at French third level side US Boulogne in October. The following video shows Diop scoring a hat-trick against Yeggo on 15.08.2013:

* Another interesting player at ASC Diaraf is midfielder Alioune Badara Tendeng. Tendeng is a product of Zig-Inter FC, traditionally the second club in Ziguinchor, behind Casa Sport. Before the Ligue 1 2011-2012, Tendeng was transferred to Casa Sport. The stint at Casa Sport turned out to be a nightmare, as Tendeng was kept in the cold throughout the season, eventually being released. Somewhat surprising to me, Tendeng won a contract with ASC Diaraf, a powerhouse in Senegalese football. Tendeng has also featured for the Senegal B national football team. The petit midfielder is s a hard-working player with excellent ball-control.  Apparently, Tendeng was also a trialist at US Boulogne in October.

* Fidel Gomis, the petit playmaker, is currently part of the Senegal B national football team. On 31.10.2013, Gomis scored for Senegal B during the 2013 UEMOA tournament. Gomis, a former player of ASC Dahra, is a big fan’s favourite.

* Babacar Seck is a goalscoring left-back who was ever-present this season, scoring an amazing tally of seven goals in 30 matches. Seck is an attacking minded full-back, also effective as a left-winger.

* Idrissa Niang, a 21-year old midfielder who was signed from modest side CSS Richard-Toll, has had a wonderful season, cementing a place in the first eleven.

* The towering centre-back Lamine Bara Ndong, who is only 19 years old, has gotten rave reviews.

* Please note that attacking midfielder / left-winger Pape Macou Sarr has joined French second level side Angers SCO.

  1. I apologize you ‘re mistaken about the year of my birth is 1995 instead of 1985.s’il please changed his

  2. Vous vous êtes trompé sur mon âge c’est pas 85 mais 95, allez vérifier

  3. Désolé vous êtes trompé sur mon âge c 95 aulieu de 85

  4. I would like to get the contact details of Dairaf. I am currently in the United States and have a very talented young football player with both Gambian and Senegalese parentage living in the Gambia who would like to move to Diaraf to play his professional football but could not get a contact. He is one of The most promising offensive midfielders in the Gambia.
