Cameroon’s Former Barcelona Star Makes Debut With Djibouti Club

Former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder, Alexandre Song has made his debut with Djibouti club, AS Arta Solar 7.

Song who made a surprising move to Djibouti last month skippered the team in a friendly game against AS Kigali at the Kigali Stadium, Rwanda. The match was in preparation for the team’s CAF Confederations Cup game against Arab Contractors on November 28.

Song, 33, left Swiss club FC Sion in March after his salary was cut as a result of the cash crunch faced by the club in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

He was unveiled by the Djibouti some weeks ago and was given his favourite #17 jersey. The former Bastia midfielder is expected to change the cause of the team for good and also steer football development in the country.
