Thursday, June 01, 2017

Gambian international Bakery Jatta has became the third Gambian player to play in the Germany Bundersliga after Dawda Bah and Ousman Manneh.

Former Hawks midfielder Dawda Bah was the first Gambian player to play in the Bundersliga after signing for Augsburg FC before injury led to his departure from the Bundersliga club.

Former Steve Biko talisman Ousman Manneh, alias Mamanding, was the second Gambian player to play in the Bundersliga for Werder Bremen after Dawda Bah.

Bakery Jatta was the third Gambian player to play in the Bundersliga for SV Hamburg after Ousman Manneh, alias Mamanding.

The 18-year-old Jatta made his debut for SV Hamburg in their pre-season encounter with Aljazeera last season.

Jatta scored the third goal for the Bundersliga side against the Asian side as part of preparations for the 2016-2017 league season.

Jatta replaced Kostic seven minutes before full-time in SV Hamburg’s final Bundersliga fixture against Wolfsburg.
