The Rise of Aboubaka Dosso: From Paris to Marseille, A Goalkeeping Sensation

The fists of victory. Yesterday, Aboubaka Dosso put on his superhero costume again to save Olympique de Marseille. Goalkeeper of the Marseille club’s U19 team, he disgusted Le Mans in the 1/8 finals of the Gambardella Cup. A competition where the 18-year-old goalkeeper shines and impresses round after round. Before arriving there, the Minot had a journey which began much further north of Marseille. In the Paris region more precisely. The native of Saint-Denis notably wore the colors of the Epinay-sur-Seine Football Academy. A 93 club that he left in 2018 to join the Stade de Reims training center with his older brother Charly (born in 2003, Sochaux player), also a goalkeeper.

Like many talents from Ile-de-France, he also defended the colors of Paris Saint-Germain. He trained there, having notably played with the U17 team. But he left the Parisians in July 2022 to join JA Drancy. He didn’t stay there long since OM flirted with him and convinced him to sign in September 2023. A choice that may be surprising coming from a former Titi. But the Phocaeans, seduced by his talent, had the right arguments to convince him to come and try the adventure, he who signed for one year. However, in the event of good performances, the residents of the Orange Vélodrome leave themselves the possibility of discussing a contract extension.

From Paris to Marseille

And they won’t have to wait long before harnessing their young talent born in 2006. The starting goalkeeper for the U19 team, he notably excelled in the Gambardella Cup. On January 14, he shined during the 1/32 final against Sporting Club de Toulon. Author of numerous decisive saves, he stopped a penalty, which contributed to his team’s 1-0 success. At the beginning of February, he was again valuable for OM during the clash against Paris Saint-Germain. Against his former club, Dosso had no qualms. Despite a goal from Gadou conceded in the first period (1-0, 10th), his team managed to equalize and had to take part in a penalty shootout. This is where the 18-year-old goalkeeper, who made some great saves during the match, entered the scene.

In fact, he stopped Sangaré’s attempt. Which allowed OM to qualify for the 1/8 finals. In full success, Dosso alternated between good and bad yesterday against Le Mans. If he was unable to do anything on 2 of the 3 goals conceded during the match (3-3), he was less inspired on the third opposing goal, he who, on a corner, let the ball slip out of his hands . Which benefited his opponents. On the other hand, he stopped a penalty during the match. He was also impressive during the penalty shootout, notably with 2 attempts rejected (6 tab to 5). A true hero, the one who embodies the future of OM brings everyone into agreement. Contacted by us, Karim Attab, journalist at Maritima and OM specialist, told us more about Dosso.

A future to settle

“At OM, we believe that it was a nice move which was achieved in September when they recovered him even though he had not been kept by PSG. For the moment, what is certain is that he is unanimous in all of Gambardella’s matches, especially the last three. In the 1/32 final, against Toulon, he was decisive by stopping a penalty in the middle of the match. Against PSG, in the 1/16 final, I think that if it’s not him, we won’t make it to the penalty shootout. And again, OM qualified with a missed shot on goal for the Parisians. Yesterday (Sunday, editor’s note), frankly, it was really exceptional because he was very good even if he made a hand mistake on the third goal at Le Mans. He saved a Le Mans penalty in the middle of the match then continued to put on his show during the penalty shootout. He made 2 decisive saves, notably the penultimate one to keep OM in the series and the one which then allowed captain Trigano to score at the end.

Karim Attab continues about it: “It’s a feline guardian, which is big. In my opinion, he will be able to continue with OM. Even if we realized, regarding the goalkeeper policy among young people, that Simon Ngapandouetnbu is at the end of his contract and never really had his chance. Jelle Van Neck is a good goalkeeper but for the moment apart from writing match sheets in the stands, he has not really done anything with OM. But it’s certain that when you see a young goalkeeper from 2006, who takes up so much space in the cage and has so much importance in the group, I think that the Gambardella and the course of OM will further put him in the spotlight. light. From that moment on, we will have to see what OM will offer him.” There is no doubt that the Marseille leaders will try to keep him, whom many fans would like to find in the first team in a few years. The future is in his gloves and the hands of OM.
