ASC LA LINGUÈRE – PRESENTATION

ASC La Linguère, from Saint-Louis in the northwest of Senegal, is currently struggling in the Senegalese Ligue 1 2014-2015.

Nevertheless, ASC La Linguère is an interesting club as they have a strong tradition of player development. In this post, I will share my thoughts on the current squad.

Goalkeepers

Since Khadim Ndiaye (now with AC Horoya from Guinea) left the club after the 2011-2012 season, ASC La Linguère has struggled to find a natural first choice goalkeeper. Currently, Babacar Diaw (b. 14.07.1993) and Mamadou Kane Diouf (b. 03.10.1986) are sharing the goalkeeping responsibilities.

Defenders

ASC La Linguère has two quality full-backs. Valentin Keny, an explosive, attacking minded player, is the first-choice at right-back. Arguably, left-back Mamadou Seck (b. 15.05.1990) is one of the top left-footed players in the league. Full-back Arfang Senghor provides back-up.

New signing Matar Lika Boye is playing regularly at centre-back, often together with Ousmane Fall, signed from Stade de Thiaroye before the current season. Nigerian centre-back Emmanuel Kalu Jonathan (b. 19.09.1988) has yet to cement his place in the first team.

Midfielders

Team captain Mamadou Aly Diouf (b. 05.02.1991) is the star player at ASC La Linguère. Diouf, a skillful midfield maestro, was the club’s top scorer last season with 6 goals. He is also the current top scorer with 4 goals in 10 games.

The squad of ASC La Linguère contains several players who started up at local amateur club Ndar Gueth de Saint-Louis, including midfielders Malick Fall, Khalifa Mbaye and Serigne Souhaibou Fall. The former is playing regularly, and has developed a good understanding with Diouf.

The versatile midfielder Moustapha Diop (b. 12.03.1991) is normally one of the first names on the team sheet.

The strongman Amadou Younouss Diallo (b. 10.01.1990), and recent signings Djibril Sambou and Papa Sidya Mbengue, are all good midfield options.

Attackers

Ibrahima Ndiaye (b. 06.07.1998) is definitely a player to watch. The 16-year old striker / attacking midfielder / winger, is fondly referred to as “Messi”.

Pape Amadou Ndiaye (b. 15.12.1995) is another highly regarded teenager at the club. Standing tall at 189 centimeters, the strongman scored regularly at local amateur club Ndar Gueth de Saint-Louis, but has scored only once at ASC La Linguère.

I have a good feeling about Pape Abdou Kader Fall (b. 18.06.1995), sometimes referred to as just “Kader Fall”. The lanky support striker, 192 centimeters tall, has good technical ability, and creates opportunities for more prolific goalscorers, such as main striker Mohamed Remy Gomis (b. 24.11.1990). Gomis has just returned to Saint-Louis after a rather uneventful stint at Portimonense SC (Portugal) and ES Béni Khalled (Tunisia). The lanky striker (190 centimeters) has only scored once this season, and the club will depend on him finding his scoring boots.

The club is still waiting for lively striker Pape Ibnou Ba (b. 05.01.1993) and speedy winger Pape Kombo Koné (b. 25.01.1993) to break through at top level of Senegalese football. Powerful striker Mamady Fall (b. 16.01.1993) is primarily a substitute, but has potential.
