Orlando, FL – Senegalese soccer star, Malick Mbaye, is soon to decide on accepting a spot in MLS or USL leagues. After successful stints at Toronto FC, North Carolina FC and Greenville FC the free agent has received various offers making him one of only five players from Senegal to join MLS this season. Mbaye, 25, has also been selected as one Senegal’s top international player

“I am looking to choose a team where I can significantly contribute, I like a good challenge and would like to be in a team that can present opportunity to take it the next level,” said the French and English-speaking athlete.

Mbaye has become a hot commodity given his speed, skill, and ability to stop magnificent plays from charging opponents.  He is also seen by many as a cool-headed and mature player having an affinity for serving the community which clubs also consider when making offers. 

Mbaye’s comprehensive player profile is product of the raw skill obtained as a child playing in the sandy streets of Senegal coupled with the top-class institutions he found as a student in the US.  The Senegal born, but American made defender is the product of some of the United States’ most prestigious soccer programs. His stellar amateur career started at the Soccer Institute of Montverde Academy considered by experts as the forming ground for America’s top players.  Mbaye later went to play Division 1 soccer for Clemson Tigers where he broke records and won all the awards including ACC Defensive Player of the Year and First Team All-ACC. At the professional level, Mbaye was key in helping Toronto FC became the first MLS team to clinch a playoff berth in the 2020 season.

Senegal’s qualifying to the World Cup makes Mbaye even more marketable as he looks to make his mark in the United States and on the world stage.
