The 2021/2022 season of Amiens SC in the rear view mirror, it is now time for 11 Amiens to sift through and analyze each player’s season through individual reports. Let’s continue with Mamadou Fofana, who quickly became a sure value in the Amiens defense.
Arrived in an Amiens SC team in great difficulty, with three defeats in as many days to start the season, Mamadou Fofana is established only two days after having put down his able-bodied in Picardy, in mid-August in Guingamp. Alongside Formose Mendy, he produced an extremely encouraging first performance by bringing both the serenity and the physical impact that the Picard club had so far lacked. Enough to lay the groundwork for his first season in Amiens and above all to contribute to the first success of the season for the ASC, all thanks to a renewed defensive solidity and perfectly embodied by the Malian international.
His season in brief
With the exception of a small moment of hesitation in the heart of autumn, with physical problems pushing him to the bench against Toulouse and Dijon, Mamadou Fofana has acted as an indisputable starter throughout the season with 29 starts on 32 possible matches excluding those where he was not at the club at the start of the season and those missed during the African Cup of Nations last January. Left axial in Philippe Hinschberger’s three-man defense from October, he stood out for the cleanliness of his defensive game with only two yellow cards received throughout the season.
Among the best elements of the first part of the season, Mamadou Fofana had more difficulty ending the season by showing himself to be less sovereign in the duels and especially more in difficulty when restarting. Often targeted by opponents, he has shown unusual feverishness over the last two months of competition, whether against Toulouse, Auxerre and especially Grenoble. However, the overall results remain extremely satisfactory for a player who should be a manager next season, unless there is an exceptional offer to add his four years of contract.
His statistics with Amiens SC
