Olympique de Marseille today announced that they have extended André-Frank Zambo Anguissa's contract until 30th June 2021.

Born on 16th November 1995 in Yaoundé, the Cameroonian midfielder joined OM in July 2015. His first League 1 match was against Olympique Lyonnais in September 2015 (1-1).
His first season with the club was impressive, with a total of 15 appearances in various tournaments. Last year, André-Frank Zambo Anguissa proved to be one of Rudi Garcia's strongest players, with appearances in 33 championship matches. A successful season meant he was selected for the Cameroonian national squad for the Confederations Cup held in Russia.
Even though the 'Les Lions Indomptables' didn't get pass the group phase, the OM player stood out thanks to a goal scored during the Cameroon-Australia match (1-1), leading him to be named Man of the Match.


Extending André-Frank Zambo Anguissa's contract until 2021 is all part of Frank Mc Court and Jacques-Henri Eyraud's current strategy. Even if the 'OM Champion project' aims to sign up experienced players, the club is also keen to keep and develop its younger talents.


"Thanks to a lot of hard work, André-Frank Zambo Anguissa has greatly improved during his time with Olympique de Marseille, meaning he is now a highly valued member of the squad. His selection for and performance in the Confederations Cup only validates the club's decision to extend his contract for three further years. He's a great example to other young players who join Marseille. We're going to continue in our mission to seek out and sign up the best young African players so that OM remains a top club." said Jacques Henri Eyraud, OM's president, in a recent statement.
