Amadou Sanyang (born August 1, 1991 in Bakau) is a Gambian soccer player who currently plays for Toronto FC in Major League Soccer.





Sanyang began his professional career with Real de Banjul of the Gambian Championnat National D1. Sanyang's time with Real de Banjul was a successful one, and in 2007 he was honoured as the best midfielder in the Gambian League.[1]

His play with the Gambian Under-20 National Team sparked interest among Major League Soccer clubs and in early 2009 he was signed by Toronto FC. Due to his age he is not eligible to join the senior squad until his 18th birthday, on August 1, 2009. He will be training with the senior team and the TFC Academy until he is eligible to join the parent club on a permanent basis.[2] Sanyang made his debut for Toronto FC on August 1, 2009 as a sub vs. New England Revolution

In September 2009, two Ligue 1 clubs sent scouts to Toronto to watch him in action. Dutch club PSV Eindhoven also requested video footage.[3]


Sanyang has represented his nation at various youth levels. He was a member of the Gambian U-17 National Team, and is currently part of the U-20 squad. In 2007, he helped lead the Gambian U-17 squad in conquering the Four Nation Tournament held in Ivory Coast. He was named the second best player in the tournament.
