The Info List - Pape Diouf

--- Advertisement ---

Mababa "Pape" Diouf (born December 18, 1951 in Abéché, Chad) is a Senegalese former journalist, best known for being the president of French football club Olympique de Marseille[1] between 2005 and 2009.[2] Diouf was born in Abéché, Chad, to Senegalese parents. The family returned to their native country shortly after Diouf's birth. Career[edit] Diouf moved to Marseille at the age of eighteen. He eventually became a journalist for a city newspaper.[2] Diouf centred his work around sport, and particularly the local football club, Olympique de Marseille.[1][2] Eventually he turned his hand to being a sports agent,[2] with clients such as former French international defender Basile Boli, and Cameroonian goalkeeper Joseph-Antoine Bell playing for Marseille. He became closely linked with the Côte d'Azur side, and his intimate relationship with the club culminated in him becoming club president in 2005. Robert Louis-Dreyfus announced that Pape Diouf would leave on June 17, 2009.[3] He was replaced by Jean-Claude Dassier. References[edit]
