TP Mazembe sign Legon Cities top right-back

Legon Cities defender and Togolese international, Atte Youssifou has sealed a two-year-move to DR Congo heavyweights TP Mazembe from the Ghana Premier League.

The WAFA trained right back has just signed a deal with an option with the top African club.

We can confirm that an agreement between the parties was reached and announced last night after several weeks of negotiations.

The experienced right-back Youssifou Atte earned a Togo national team call up following his outstanding displays in the Ghana Premier League in March this year during their games against Sierra Leone and Benin.

Atte has been impressive for the Royals and plays a key role in the previous season.

He started his career with West African Football Academy, he was promoted to the senior team in December 2017. He made debut on 17 March 2018, after playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–1 draw to Asante Kotoko. He played 14 league matches in his debut season, before the league was cancelled due to the controversies around the Anas Number 12 Expose. During the 2019 GFA Normalization Competition, he made 12 appearances. He continued to be the first choice right-back and relevant member of the team during the truncated 2019–20 season as he played all 15 league matches before the league was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Ghana.

TP Mazembe is currently the most successful club in DR. Congo with 37 titles.
