Mali defender Coulibaly reunited with his former boss Carteron at Raja Casablanca

Mali defender Coulibaly reunited with his former boss Carteron at Raja Casablanca

Former Al Ahly defender Salif Coulibaly  has joined Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca on a free transfer to reunite with his former boss Patrice Carteron.

Carteron signed the Malian defender during his time in charge of the Red Devils, before mutually terminating  his contract last January.

He joined the Reds on a free transfer after playing under the leadership of Carteron at Mazembe and now he will reunite with the Frenchman for the third time at Raja Casablanca.

During his time at Al Ahly, Coulibaly made 22 appearances, while scoring three goals and providing two assists, helping Al Ahly reach the CAF Champions League final.

The 31-year-old took part in this season’s league campaign, with his last game coming in Al Ahly’s 1-0 victory over Smouha last January.

However, the arrival of Angolan winger Gerlado from CD 1º de Agosto meant that one of the foreign players must depart the club, and Coulibaly was the chosen one after the club secured the signing of Yasser Ibrahim from Smouha.

He becomes Raja Casablanca’s first summer signing as they want to strengthen the squad in order to win their first league title in seven years.
