His teammates call him 'The Beast'. And we all know why! The ruthless defender prefers to play as a central defender, but can also play as a right back. Born in Ivory Coast, but started his professional career at Espanyol in 2011. He moved to Spain when he was only 17 years old. He was spotted by Espanyol's scout Emilio Montagut after participating in a youth tournament in Burkina Faso. He made his debut for the reservers of Espanyol in 2013-14, who play in the Segunda Division B. In October 2014 he made his debut for the first team of Espanyol in La Liga. He was immediately promoted to the main squad, but played only 5 games for them. In January 2015 the beastly defender signed a five-and-a-half-year contract at Villareal. They bought him for a 5.7 Million Euro fee, as a replacement for Gabriel Paulista (who moved to Arsenal the very same year). His star kept on rising. After only one season at Villareal it was the legendary Manchester United who showed interested and managed to buy him for 30 Million Pound. He was the first player signed by the (by then new) coach José Mourinho. Almost every match he is part of the first eleven and he already won some personal awards such as man of the match awards and the player of the month trophy (august 2016, shortly after his arrival). This man has a bright future ahead of him!
