Arriving from the Guinean club of the AS Kaloum of Conakry, KEUMIAN Guy Gombagui is a very experienced Ivorian striker who intends to fight to put his efficiency at the service of the ASEC Mimosas and help the club to meet its challenges of the season. Interview.
KEUMIAN, can you introduce yourself to the stockholders?
My name is KEUMIAN Guy Gombagui. I’m Ivorian. I am 29 years old and I am evolving in attack. My last club is the as Kaloum of Conakry (Ligue 1 of Guinea). I just signed at the ASEC Mimosas.
Where did you leave to sign for the ace Kaloum?
I did not play much in Ivory Coast. I only made lightning passages to FC San Pedro, in 2006, when this club was in D3, then to Seraphim FC (2015) with which I did not play. Then I moved on to Morocco, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, before I put my suitcases in the Nigerian club of Rivers United FC. It was after this club that I went to the as Kaloum of Conakry where I signed without playing.
How were the contacts that led to your coming to the ASEC Mimosas?
It’s thanks to Coach AMANI Yao. Three or four years ago, when he coached the Ace Tanda, he asked me to join him in this club. It was not done because I was under contract with Rivers United FC. When he contacted me again recently when I had just signed up to the AS Kaloum, I found an amicable arrangement with the leaders of the Guinean club to free me. When I returned to Abidjan, I went to meet Coach AMANI Yao who put me in touch with Mr. Baky Kone, the president of the Football Section of the ASEC Mimosas, with whom I exchanged. President Baky Kone introduced me to the projects of the club that seduced me and I signed.
How do you see the ASEC Mimosas?
It is the largest Ivorian club that is well known and respected in Africa. I’ve always dreamed of playing in this club. The fact that the ASEC Mimosas competes with the CAF Champions League is also an interesting challenge as is its goal of fighting to retain its title of champion of Cote d’ivoire. The ASEC Mimosas is an ambitious club.
How do you find the environment of your new club?
It’s a very professional environment. The club is very well organized with quality sports facilities that allow its teams to train in excellent conditions with blessed ground. And besides, I’m not displaced because I know several teammates like Captain KOUTOUAN Adam Arnaud, Badiee Gbagnon, WONYOU tiziee, GONAZO Bi Ya Thomas, and many others.
What are your new ambitions?
Playing the ASEC Mimosas is a new challenge. I have to give everything to adapt quickly to my new environment and play to win the title of Champion of Cote d’ivoire, the National cup and if possible the Champions League of the CAF.
What can you tell the stockholders to close this interview?
I promise to give the best of myself.
Their support will make the club stronger and stronger to be among the best on the continent.
