Former Real De Banjul prolific striker, Madi Fatty, has expressed his desire to represent The Gambia in future international football.

Fatty made this remark in an interview with Pointsports desk recently.

Fatty said his dream is always to represent The Gambia in the international arena when he was young, adding that his ambition is to play for The Gambia national team in international football.

Fatty revealed that he wants to continue his career in France or the Netherlands in future when he leaves Niarry Tally in the Senegalese premier league.

The former Gambia U-20 talisman is currently plying his trade with the Senegalese premier league side Niarry Tally.

Fatty was born in Serrekunda on 24 April 1996, and started his career with Black Pool FC youth team, now called Serrekunda United, who are currently plying their trade in the Gambian top flight league.

His brilliant performance with the Serrekunda United attracted Real De Banjul to sign him before his departure to the Senegalese premier league side.

Fatty joined Serrekunda United in 2010 scoring two goals in his first match and 8 goals respectively to help his club climb to the first division.

Madi continued his impressive goal-scoring record in the first division where he scored 9 goals for Serrekunda United and netted his first- ever hat-trick against Wallidan FC.

His remarkable performances attracted the attention of bigger clubs in the country like Real de Banjul and Gamtel to fight for his signature.

Fatty signed for Real De Banjul in the 2013-2014 season where he notched in 7 goals and 5 assists to his belt in his debut season and also inspired the city boys to the country’s domestic league title as well as the Super Cup title.

Fatty was part of the Gambia U-20 team that defeated Liberia 1-0 in the 2015 Africa U-20 Youth Championship qualifiers played on 6 April 2014, in Monrovia.

Fatty has netted 4 goals in nine games for Niary Tally in the Senegalese premier league so far this season.
