By Samuel J. Kargbo – 23 August 2019

Abu Dumbuya fondly known as Abu Diaby is indisputably the most consistent and reliable midfielder in the country for couple of seasons now. He was part of the East End Lions squad that lifted the trophy in the just concluded national Premier League. He played a pivotal role towards the team winning such a tight race trophy.

So far he has shown great commitment and determination towards pursuing his dream in football as well as bagging so many awards in doing so.

Recently, he was awarded as the best midfielder by the Ministry of Sports in their Independence day organised Competition. The renowned footballer sustained an injury a couple of weeks ago whilst playing for E.E. Lions but he has now recovered.

He has played with F.C Kallon, Old Edwardians, F.C Johansen, Central Parade and presently he is with E.E. Lions. He has been able to accumulate a wealth of experience through mentorship by different coaches. Many that this medium came in contact with attested that his contribution to the national team will be strongly needed.

Football fans around Sierra Leone said the country is blessed with good midfielders but none can play the No. 6 role better than the way Abu Diaby does. The skills and zeal he possesses are unmatched both at home and abroad.

“We are appealing to coach Sellas Tetteh to give the young midfielder a chance as he has proven to be an asset not only to the National team but to football as a whole and when given a chance will prove it without doubt. He has been the most consistent No.6 is Sierra Leone football,” traders on Rawdon Street stated whilst arguing about football related issues.

In an exclusive brief chat Abu Diaby said: “I am determined and ready for the first time to qualify my country to the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) and World Cup. If I lose the ball I will continue to chase for it until I win it back. I am not the kind of mid-fielder to sit down on the bench too much and I want to be involved. That’s my character.”

He has won best midfielder in the 2017/2018 COFA competition when he played for Mountain City and has also played for Wusum Stars Football Club in Makeni.
