Mousa Dembele Biography

Moussa Sidi Yaya Dembélé is a Belgian footballer who plays as a central midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League and the Belgium national football team where he has achieved 40 caps. He started his professional career for Germinal Beerschot, a team in the Belgian Pro League. In 2005 he signed for the youth section of Willem II and scored nine times in the very first season. In 2006, he transferred to AZ Alkmaar. On 18 August 2010, Fulham announced that Dembele had joined from AZ Alkmaar on a three-year deal for a fee of £5 million. He made his debut on 22 August 2010, coming on as a substitute against Manchester United. He then scored a great solo goal against Tottenham Hotspur, running from the halfway line before powerfully placing his shot beyond Heurelho Gomes. This was voted the Fulham goal of the season by the Fulham fans. Dembélé transferred to Tottenham Hotspur on 29 August 2012. He scored on his debut against Norwich City on 1 September in a 1–1 draw. Dembele participated in the 2008 Summer Olympics, where he put on a remarkable show, being instrumental in Belgium's 3–2 win to Italy in the quarterfinals, scoring two goals, including the defining goal of the match.
