About Salif Diao
Putting the sport into support
Salif’s vision for Sport4Charity is to bring together sporting celebrities to support charities through one channel. A family man from Kedougou in Senegal, he has invested time and money into helping to improve the lives of children in Senegal and has won recognition for his charity work in France with Caap Afrika.
Diao was born in Kédougou, Tambacounda Region. He began his career in his native country before moving to France at the age of seventeen. He played for AS Monaco and with them won the French League in the 1999-2000 season. Salif also won a runner-up medal in the 2002 African Cup of Nations, where Senegal lost in extra time to Cameroon.
Diao has appeared more than 39 times for Senegal, netting 4 goals in the process, including a strike against Denmark at the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He later went on to score the goal of the tournament.
His experience will be crucial for Stoke City this season as they bid to secure a third straight campaign in the top flight.
The International Senegal midfielder was courted by a number of other clubs, both in England and abroad, in the summer but has stated that his love for Stoke has made him stay.
