KVO reached an agreement today with attacker Mamadou Thiam (25). The Senegalese Frenchman has been training as a test player for several weeks and convinced the sporting staff of his ability. He signed a two-year contract with an option for an additional year.
Mamadou Thiam grew up in France and went through the youth ranks of Dijon FC. There he made his debut in the 2014-2015 season in the French second division. At a young age he would eventually play some 60 matches in the French second division at Dijon and his later club Clermont Foot.
In 2017 Thiam moved to FC Barnsley, where current KVO CEO Gauthier Ganaye remembered him from his time at FC Lens. At Barnsley he would eventually play almost 100 games, divided between the Championship (second division) and League One (third division). His contract ended last summer and the attacker has been without a club ever since. He had been training as a test player at KVO for several weeks and convinced the sports staff of his added value.
“I brought Thiam to Barnsley at the time, so I know him quite well,” said Gauthier Ganaye. “He is bipedal and can work deep in the striker as well as on the flank. I still remember some great goals from his time at Barnsley and I am happy to bring him to Ostend now. He didn’t play league games for about a year, so we first offered him a test to see how his physique is doing. The fact that he took that test proves that he is mentally cut out of the right wood. Of course he still misses some rhythm, but we now give him plenty of time to regain his best level. If that happens, we will still enjoy it. ”
Mamadou herself is also very happy to be able to officially start working at KVO. “I had been training for several weeks and also played in a practice match, in which I also scored. I feel good here in this young group and I absolutely wanted to prove myself to the sporting staff here. I have now succeeded and now it is up to me to work hard so that I can quickly get back to my level from Barnsley. I can’t wait to make my first few minutes for KVO. I am grateful to the club and Gauthier Ganaye for this opportunity. ”
