In this exclusive interview between Serie A and André-Frank Zambo Anguissa, the defensive midfielder speaks about his career and previews Empoli vs Napoli, taking place on 24/04/2022.
André-Frank Zambo Anguissa: Career & Statistics
26-year-old Anguissa currently plays for Serie A side Napoli on loan from Fulham. So far this season, the Cameroonian has made 25 appearances in all competitions (1921 minutes played) for the Partenopei.
While the midfielder has not scored or set up a goal, what he has done is make the team tick. In his first season in Italian football, the Yaoundé-born player has become Napoli’s beating heart without being a headline act; not only does he win back possession and break the opposition lines, he demonstrates powerful running and neat footwork on a regular basis. This is why he has become a member of Luciano Spalletti‘s preferred starting eleven.
Anguissa made his first professional appearance with Marseille in Ligue 1 during the 2016/17 campaign. After three seasons – where he tallied 106 appearances for the French side – he was signed by The Cottagers; since 2018, he has made 66 appearances for the English side.
Anguissa is also a Cameroon international, having secured 41 caps with the senior team since his debut on 24 March 2017.
