It’s official ! Demba Ba ends his professional career after 16 years of good and loyal service in Germany, Turkey, England and China.
This Monday, Demba Ba announced via his social networks that he was putting an end to his football career. A busy sixteen-year career. Indeed, the former Senegalese international (22 selections) went through various championships including the Premier League. We necessarily remember his goal at the end of the match against (87th) PSG when he was playing at Chelsea. A goal in the quarterfinals of the Champions League that crucified the Parisians, ironic for the native of Sèvres. The 36-year-old striker made a point of sending a touching message about his great career:
« What an incredible experience it has been for me to take part in this adventure. Between the laughter, the tears, the sweat,… football brought me so many emotions. From the passion of the supporters to their cries of joy at each of my goals and the bonds created with my teammates on and off the pitch, all of this will remain etched in me forever. »

Goodbye Demba Ba!
Passed by Hoffenheim (Germany), Newcastle, West Ham, Chelsea (England), Besiktas, Basaksehir (Turkey) or even Shanghai Shenhua in China, the Senegalese ended his football career at the Lugano club in Switzerland. He will leave an indelible mark in this sport both for his performances (winner of the Europa League in 2013 with Chelsea) and for his fight against racism. Good continuation Demba Ba.
