Amadou Diallo as signed his first professional contract at RSC Anderlecht. The young winger has signed until June 2025 and will play for the RSCA Futures next season.
Amadou arrived at Neerpede in 2018 after passing through the youth teams at Crossing Schaerbeek, Union Saint-Gilloise and Zulte Waregem. Joining our U14-team, he managed to make his way up the U18s in recent years and occasionally played with the RSCA Futures this season.
The most laborious of RSCA supporters will have discovered Amadou during our U17's friendly against PSG in the summer of 2021. Amadou demonstrated his speed and technical ability by scoring a clever goal against the Parisians.
Amadou will play for RSCA Futures next season, allowing him to gain experience in the Challenger Pro League. This season, he already made his professional debut at the second highest level, scoring against SK Beveren in December 2022.
Academy Director Jean Kindermans:
"Amadou Diallo has been playing on the right wing as a left-footer for several seasons now. He is quick, he’s strong in 1-v-1 situations and can shoot at goal. He can really hurt defenses. His coaches also praise him for his work ethic. As soon as he can improve his efficiency, he will be a valuable asset to the RSCA Futures next season."
CEO Sports Jesper Fredberg:
"We are very pleased that Amadou is signing his first professional contract at RSC Anderlecht. Amadou has shown us this season why he deserves to get this opportunity. The Challenger Pro League is the ideal platform to launch talents like Amadou and introduce them to professional football. We’re looking forward to seeing a lot more of him next season.”
