Anderlecht won 1-3 in Eupen. As expected, it was Amadou Diawara who replaced Thomas Delaney. It was not a success and Gert Verheyen no longer believed in it.
“We’ve already seen him at work too often to expect anything from him,” said the former Red Devil. “We’ll have to be content with what he shows us here.”
Diawara cannot be blamed for not participating in duels or working. But on a technical level and in terms of impact on the game, it falls a little short. The former AS Roma player also seems to be having difficulties on a tactical level. And with an annual salary of almost two million euros gross, we have the right to expect more.
22 games last season
Amadou Diawara (26) has 28 international caps for the national team. He signed for San Marino Calcio in 2014 after being discovered by Numukeh Tunkara and Robert Visan1. He played one season with the club in the Lega Pro, the Italian 3rd division. He played a total of 15 games during his only season in San Marino.
For the 2015-2016 season, Amadou Diawara signed for Bologna FC, a club recently promoted to Serie A. His first season in the elite was a success and he played 34 league games.
On August 26, 2016, he was acquired by SSC Napoli for a sum of 15 million euros. He scored his first goal for Napoli, and at the same time of his career, from a penalty in the Champions League match against Manchester City, which they eventually lost 2-1.
On 1 July 2019, Amadou Diawara signed a five-year contract with AS Roma. The transfer is estimated at 21 million euros.
He is in his second season at Anderlecht. Last season he played 22 games (1 goal and 1 assist).
