Souleymane Mamam (born 20 June 1985 in Lomé) is a Togolese footballer who plays for K.R.C. Mechelen in the Belgian Third Division A. He plays as an attacking midfielder or a winger.

Club career

Mamam was signed by Manchester United in 2003. However, work permit regulations meant that it was not possible for Mamam to play in the United Kingdom. Mamam was therefore sent on loan to play at Royal Antwerp until he was eligible for a Belgian passport. At the end of the 2006-07 season, after four seasons of playing on loan for Antwerp, Manchester United decided not to renew his contract.

Having become a free agent, Mamam then signed a new one-year permanent deal with Royal Antwerp in time for the start of the 2007-08 season. He went on trial at Motherwell and Birmingham, but failed to secure a deal due to work permit problems.[1] He has been on trial with Toronto FC in the MLS. In January 2010 Souleyman has joined K.R.C. Mechelen in Belgian Third Division A.[2]

International career

According to official FIFA records, on 6 May 2001, he became the youngest player to ever play a World Cup qualifier when he played for Togo against Zambia at the age of 13 years and 310 days.[3] This would give his birthdate as 30 June 1987. However, various websites, including the official website of Royal Antwerp, cite 20 June 1985 as Mamam's birthdate, which would mean he was in fact almost 16 when he played his first match for Togo.
