Yaya Sanogo’s profile in 2011 (after starting new game, patch 12.2)

Yaya Sanogo’s scouting report from Cagigao of Arsenal

Yaya Sanogo’s profile aged 23 in the year 2016

 Yaya Sanogo’s career history until 2019

This FM 2012 player profile of Yaya Sanogo demonstrates the strikers ability. The future profile shown is new and provided by Pedro Silva. From this future profile you can see he has made drastic improvements physically and technically, he’s only 23 and looks like the complete article already. Sanogo’s asking price of just £2.5 million is an absolute bargain and he can be signed for less later in the game. We all loved him in FM 2011 and I think we can now say that Sanogo gets close to that previous standard. If you’re looking for an ox and goal machine upfront then look no further.

Best buy rating: 9.5/10

Darren, Sanogo is a monster!

I bought him with my no-transfer-budget Liverpool team after mysteriously saving up £1.1 million, with the option for a further 1.8 million after 40 games. Intended him to be a young alternative to Bellamy. Played him on a lark and he banged in two goals. He’s now my super-sub … every single time, except one, he has scored after being brought on.

This is in his first season too, I shudder to think how he’s going to develop!! :D

actually, his contract ends on june 2012, so can be free transferred on 1st of January, 2012.

Indeed jamal … In my excitement to sign him I just threw money at him to prevent the likes of Man City getting him first. Not exactly a bank breaker though, so it is okay. :)

How about Lomelu Lukaku? CAn I have his future profile? Is he a injury prompt striker?

Thanks Darren. I’m managing Chelsea currently, Drogba is getting old and Torres is not performing. I have signed Yaya Sanogo and just wondering shall I remain Lukaku? Will him be a star player? I’m just curious about his future profile stats…

awesome
Guest

I am managing chelsea I have really good strikers yaya sanogo iker hernandez and lukaku they are all for future! Torres is fantastic can not stop scoring as for drogba he gets injured. Yaya Sanogo is my super-sub!

The best thing about this guy is that he can be signed for free by a low reputation team like Pescara. I signed both Sanogo, Bertolacci & even Romario for free.

Just agreed a free for this guy with spurs. was shocked as man u, arsenal, liverpool and the like were interested.

Roll on July 2012!!

(by the way, excellent site mate!)

Sanogo is amazing! I bought him for Southampton for 2 million and he won us the championship himself. I put him in the poacher role and he dominated scoring 32 goals in 33 league games. In one year United and Barca are already interested. A must buy.

Still an excellent player despite suffering a long term injury last year, and an amazing bargain on a free transfer after 6 months of the game starting!

Collins

this guy is a beast and those physical attributes are to die for moment i saw this i signed him worth every penny

David Warner
Guest

Darren, slightly off topic but how did you rate Salomon Rondon when you were doing your Malaga story? Any chance of a scouting profile on him? :)

Chonger
Guest

Got this kid second season for free and also got raul for free just to tutor him(and replace kiebling who i made profit off)…and rooney is going to do it next…I am hoping he becomes a complete monster.

manos rizos
Guest

Jean-Armel Kana-Bi! It is my 3 season in birmingham and i never saw better physical skills in my life +remarkable 17 marking and tackling!

Nathan
Guest

Hey,

Signed Sanogo on an initial loan deal and then grabbed him on a free transfer when I could offer him a contract with 6 months left

Good way of getting him for cheap.

Heresy
Guest

Did the same. That way you can start training him 1 year earlier and give him some 1st team football as well!

manos rizos
Guest

if som1 needs a DR sign Kyle Walker!he has top speed and good techn abil!

manos rizos

i am in 3rd season and i cant decide who to sign for solo striker! Yaya sanogo or Leandro Damiao! i have 30m budget

Brandon
Guest

Darren slightly off topic but what do you think of yougn striker Artem Dzyuba? Would he be a worthwhile signing?

Marius
Guest

What about Nelson Oliveira?

James
Guest

He’s great and when you first start the game, you can loan him in on a season-long loan before getting him free in the summer of 2012! Bargain! :)

Hi Darren, i need some help here… i signed sanogo when he wasnt being used in inter and i am deeply disapointed with the perfomances…. i put him as striker or poacher and even tryed complete forward but he just cant do a good game…. Fierro is a demon compared with sanogo but the problem might be me… im also a bit sad with Hazard paid 47M for him and he is doing way less then expected, appreciate any help here thanks.

Guys i have a question: i played yaya sanogo from fm 2011 in many championships.
In these days i play with 2 more friends in lan championship in holland and he seems exactly like in his reporsts: fairly selfish player keeps the ball to much and many times loose it my game is made only by midfilders, what you think about?

If you played sanogo,what is your opionion about his behaviour in matches?

Ebonest

yellow cards can be expected commonly, he misses 2 games in league guaranteed. but red is really rare maybe 1 in two years.

Is Sanogo any good in Fm2012?Does anyone know?

I tried that player at parma and in 1st season showed me that can be a world class player. I am really impressed . can score goals from crosses of the aml/amr. what i saw that is weak point represent the places shots.if u teach him that u can make it your first team player with no doubt.

How can I get highest potential for these wonderkids?

Guest
Thanks Darren I had Sonago in FM2011 and he was outstanding. But he’s failed to delvier for me in 2012 and at about 20 y.o. in a top half team in the premiership he’s averaging only about 6.5 and once went 9 hours without a goal. Perhaps it’s my dodgy tactics! If you have a fast striker like him do you think is it reasonable to play him up front alone with 2 wingers behind him, or does he need a supporting striker, or indeed would you make sonago a supporting striker when up front on his own? Generally I… Read more »

Craig sanogo needs a good winger who will pass with him not a fairly selfish player ,because himself is a .
I use on playmaker position at parme on giovinco and he work wonderful with sanogo

look for a playmaker who have atribute

Sanogo is a beast had him for two seasons he was my starter as soon as he came wont say he played great but he got 19 goals in that season i came second after inter just get good wingers who can deliver the ball to his feet or head and you will score like crazy if you give him tons of first team football he will explode. compliment him with great partners like hazzard, pogba and mateo who can give killer through balls or passes across the goal mouth and watch him bury them in the back of the… Read more »

Bit of a problem with Sanogo, but its probably my fault. Scouted him with Parnaby (20/20) and turned out to be 4star potential, so I made an offer which Barca promptly rejected. Went for the loan option midway through first season in charge of Liverpool and got him. The problem was that he was ineligible for every single match. And I’m currently in my second season and I made sure i registered him, but he reamains ineligible for all of my games. The question: Does anyone have any idea what i did wrong?

Shriv
Guest

Oh and I forgot to mention, I tried the thing where you actually buy transfer him as opposed to loan (bought him during pre-season before second season) and barca accepted. When it comes to the contract negotiation screen, his agent says he does not wish to negotiate a contract with me. And viewing his contract info under his profile yields a blank…the area where the contract info should be is literall void of information. Hope that helps…and i hope this isnt a bug.

I wanted to give Sanogo another chance since he disappointed me in my Fulham save. He managed to play 1 cup match before getting injured for 4 months. Just great… I even bought Raul to tutor him! Well, all wasn’t lost. I could give other players a lot of first team football and concentrate on Sanogo in the second part of the season… 2 matches after returning to full fitness he got injured again for another 4 months :S It’s a safe bet he won’t reach any acceptable level after that.. Oh well, guess I’ll never know why you love… Read more »

hey darren i have a question about Sanogo, i have wingers and playmakers who provide for all my players, each wingers has at least 10 assists(in Feb) and Eriksen has 17, i have Canales and Kovacic, even Suarez has 10 assists, but Sanogo only has 5 goals from 27 apps, and way i can get him firing again? im so close to selling but he is such a talent!

im having a problem as he has 30 goals last season!

Dimas

Hi darren, in my roma, sanogo seems doesnt developes well.. i use 41212 formation, with fiero as trequartista, lamela as AM, and sanogo as poacher. instead sanogo i prefer to use paloschi. he scored in every single games. any sugestion to unleashed sanogo’s potential? i loaned him to parma n his statistic seems pretty poor too

Martin

Yaya Sanogo is a BEAST!

Picked him up for free before the 2012-13 season as a backup to Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse at Newcastle.

When Demba Ba got injured I had to start playing him – He played Ba out of the starting eleven.

His first season at Newcastle:
35 apps, 28 goals, 5 ast, 9 MoM, 7.26 avg rtg.

His second season (Dec 11 2013 as we speak):
22 apps, 25 goals, 7 ast, 9 MoM, 7.99 avg rtg.

Using him in a DLF/Poacher combo with Cisse as the DLF

Martin
Guest

Just a quick update here:

End of season stats:

46 games, 48 goals, 12 ast, 13 MoM, 7.74 avg rating.

New Premier League goal record with 36 (in 30 games!).
New Premier League average rating record with 7.83.
Won English Footballer of the year.

All in 2013/2014 season while playing for Newcastle.

He seems to go off the boil sometimes for me. I have him at Man Utd in 2015/16 – I don’t want to complain because so far he’s scored 42 goals in 36 games and it’s only february but he seems to be a little inconsistent. E.g. He’ll score 2 hat-tricks in a row then 5 goals in the next game but then go on a goal drought where he misses a massive amount of sitters. Then five games later he’ll just start banging in hat tricks again. His stats are very impressive but slightly deceptive. I’d rather win every… Read more »

I got Sanogo on a free transfer i have got a pic: http://gyazo.com/a123b8f90757e92b0d7676deff814ea2
To get him just get him on loan for the first season of the game and he rejected a contract from Auxerre because he wanted to be promised first team football. I offered him a contract and he accepted. A player of his ability for £0 is just amazing (i was Southampton so he played along side Sharp)

Hes played 17 games for me and scored 4 don’t recommend for top flight football. How can I get the best out of him

I signed him for Heart of Midlothian on a free contract after his contract ran out. 2 and a half years later (with about 3-4 months missed through injury) he’s scored over 70 goals and is currently a goal a game this season (and that is mainly in Europe, not just the sub standard Scottish teams), his Hattrick against Ajax (which is why I qualified for the group stage) is a real highlight. Only problem is that he has realised he is better than the league so has handed in a transfer request, it’ll still take a large bid for… Read more »

This man became world class in my save and scored 103 goals in one season (including a hatrick in my heartbreaking loss to Barca in the Champions Cup Semi-Final.)

Strength of an Ox, Super speedy and has great finishing and composure and is a top level Poacher. Won the European Player of the Year at just age 23 averaging 8.71 rating. Also had 28 assists which was fantastic.

Highly recommended. (I also play him alongside Carlos Fierro who is also another amazing wonderkid so who knows Sanogo’s scoring output could be even higher if he was alone!)

Have this guys in milan as a future replacement for zlatan. Hes been amazing, even tho is just 18 years hes score so far is 5(7)matches 12 goals and 4 assist. Pretty good for a 18 year old. Have bigbig hopes for thes player, have never tyred him before. do you think its a smart idea to sell zlatan in the next transver window? hes 30 years old and still wort 20mill and i dont see that lasting long

Wilson

I’m playing with LOSC, and I bought Sanogo in my first year. I play him in games where we are clear favourites, and sub him on when we’re winning. However, he is playing awfully, I’m about 2/3 of the way through the season and he’s only got 1 goal. I know he is only 18, but I’ve noticed other peoples success with the player. He is getting tutored by Jelen. Am I doing something wrong here?

Wilson
Guest

BTW, I’m very new to the game, so any advice would be great

yayy
Guest

Hes a wonderkid, only 18s year old he wont be kicking a goal a game (YET!). Give him a few years to grow into his potential then watch him style over the league and Europe.

I will say though my story was the complete opposite. I gave him a starting position when he was 18 as I had no other decent strikers (apart from R.Lambert in my Southampton save)and he kicked 20 goals in his first season. It was the Championship though so I won’t reccomend doing that for Ligue 1.
