Stoke City FC Player Profiles

AFTER JOINING from Hannover Mame Diouf became Stoke City's top scorer last season with 11 goals.

Diouf had signed a 4 year deal at the Britannia Stadium in the summer of 2014 after leaving Bundesliga side Hannover. He'd been targeted by manager Mark Hughes for some time before joining the Club.

The 26-year-old was no stranger to England however, having joined the Bundesliga outfit from Manchester United in January 2012.

In his first full season with the Bundesliga outfit, he finished as the side's top scorer with 17 goals and ended the 2013/14 campaign as second highest scorer with eight goals.

Mame became the seventh Senegalese player to represent the Potters after Salif Diao, Abdoulaye Faye, Amdy Faye, Ibrahima Sonko and Henri Camara.

He scored an impressive 45 goals in 92 appearances for Norwegian side Molde and finished his first season as top scorer with 10 goals.

After catching the eye of a number of top clubs, his rapid rise as one of Europe's hottest prospects prompted Sir Alex Ferguson to swoop for his signature in May 2009.

He scored his first goal in United colours in just his second appearance for the Red Devils in a 3-0 Premier League win over Burnley in January 2010.

After being an unused substitute in Manchester United's League Cup win over Aston Villa at Wembley in 2010, Diouf joined Blackburn Rovers on a season-long loan for 2010/11 and made an instant impact by bagging a hat-trick on his first start for Rovers against Norwich City.

During his time at Ewood Park he featured against the Potters on two occasions though City did the double over the Lancashire side.

Giving his prolific goalscoring form, it comes as no surprise that Diouf's childhood hero is Brazilian striker Ronaldo.
