According to information from Ouest-France, confirmed by the player, Touty Gandega (29 years old, 1.70 m) has extended his contract with UF Angers Basket until 2023. At the club since 2018, the Malian back is currently realizing his best season under the jersey of the Ufab, which aims to climb to the Women’s League.

She will be celebrating her 30th birthday in June. History does not yet say whether this round count will be accompanied by a return to the spotlight of the Women’s League, but what is certain is that Touty Gandega will pass this new milestone in the Angevin jersey.

Arriving in Anjou in 2018, the Malian international gave its approval to the leaders of the Ufab for two more seasons.

“I feel really good here,” she explains. David (Gautier) makes me play, he trusts me, he’s a great coach and I really thrive. I am happy to continue with him and I am happy with this stability. “

Three cruciate ligament ruptures in his career

Obviously, satisfaction is mutual as the coach is obviously working on building a team that could move upstairs. With 13 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.8 interceptions and 4 average assists per game, Touty Gandega has the profile. Still as aggressive with the ball in hand and capable of occupying position 1, the player trained at Mondeville ticks all the boxes. And while she hasn’t played in the Women’s League since 2016, it’s probably a level she would never have left if it hadn’t been for serious injuries to be the recurring drama of her career.

Needless to say, Touty Gandega has suffered three cruciate ligament ruptures in his career! With humility and character, she always stood up. In this sense, a return to the Women’s League would be a great reward:

It matters more than the level and this is the case in Angers. “[/perfectpullquote]

According to our information, she should also play with her friend Kekelly Elenga, who is playing in Chartres this season and who is about to join Ufab. A little extra sweetness for Angevine.
