The Malian international, Cheick Traoré, signed a contract this Monday, June 28, 2021 with Dijon, club of the French League 2. The right-back will play in France for the 2021/2022 season, hoping that his club, Dijon, will be among the top three to join Ligue 1. In this case, the 26-year-old Malian footballer will be entitled to a three-year contract. The challenge is great but the Malian defender can count on his talent.
Cheick Traoré signed a one-year contract with Dijon on Monday 28 June. The Malian lateral who played with the RC Lens since 2019, will take up the challenge with the Ligue 2 club hoping to play in Ligue 1 the following season. With blood and gold, Cheikh Traoré played only two matches due to a rupture of the Achilles tendon. On the site of his new club, he expressed his satisfaction to be definitively restored before formulating his commitment to achieve the feat in Ligue 2. I would first of all like to thank the DFCO for the trust granted. I just got out of a big injury and I didn’t play this season. A club like the DFCO, which has just come down and knows the elite well, is a great challenge to take up. The DFCO is a family club, with values. That’s what made my choice. […] I feel mentally ready. Now it’s up to me to prove it on the ground,” he said.
Cheick Traoré was born in 1995 in Paris. He has known several French clubs including SM Caen, US Avranches, LB Châteauroux, EA Guingamp, RC Lens and now Dijon. He was also selected as a national team with Mali in 2019 with 1 goal scored.
