Mansour Assoumani (born 30 January 1983) is a French born footballer who currently plays for Wrexham. A centre-back who can also play at right full-back, he is 6 feet 2 inches tall. His parents originate from the Comoros.



Assoumani began his career in the French First Division with Montpellier HSC on 18 August, 2001. He played 72 matches for the club (43 in D1, 29 in D2) and registered four goals (two in D1 and two in D2).[1] After five seasons he joined the German club 1. FC Saarbrücken and, subsequently, Sportfreunde Siegen.[2]. Prior to joining Leeds United, Assoumani spent time on trial at Sheffield United but failed to impress sufficiently to earn a permanent deal.[3] It has been said that he has played one game for Mali, but this is untrue.


Leeds United

On December 17, 2008, Assoumani was handed a one-month contract with Leeds United after a successful trial which also saw him score a goal in a reserve game against York City.[4] He made his debut three days later in a 3–1 defeat to Milton Keynes Dons.[5] He played the first half at right-back, but due to the substitution of Ľubomír Michalík at half-time, Assoumani played the second half in his more favoured position of centre-back.

Assoumani was unfortunate that Gary McAllister who signed him was sacked after the game after a run of 5 defeats in a row. Assoumani didn't figure at all under new manager Simon Grayson. He was released on January 18 2009.[6] On 22 January 2009 he was offered a week long trial with Crewe Alexandra however he was released without being offered a contract.


On 26 March 2009, Assoumani joined Football Conference side Wrexham,[7] making his debut on 7 April in a 0-0 draw with Histon.
