Yaya Sanogo has done it again: he’s scored a goal for Toulouse.

Until January 10, Sanogo hadn’t found the back of the net since October – three months after the 25-year-old was released by Arsenal and signed by Toulouse on a three-year deal – but now he seems to be on a roll.

Kind of.

The striker scored Toulouse’s only goal against Troyes on Saturday, earning the Ligue 1 side a much-needed three points.

The goal itself is absolutely lovely as well – what a finish.


Toulouse manager Mickaël Debève was especially pleased for the injury-prone Frenchman, who’s struggled to find form over the years.

“(The win is a) big relief; it’s an important victory that we deserve,” said Debève post-match.

“It was absolutely necessary to take these three points, we did what was necessary. It’s a big satisfaction this evening. 

“I tell myself that I have a group that is able to fight. 

“Yaya (Sanogo) has not been successful for a while but he’s a great player, I’m really happy for him because he’s come along way.”

This is Sanogo’s third goal in 17 appearances this season, which isn’t a fantastic tally, but considering two of these have come this month alone, I’d say he’s on the right track. At least I hope he is. The poor guy deserves a break.

More importantly, the striker seems to be getting proper game time in France.

During his four years as a Gunner, he only ever made 11 Premier League appearances and was sent out on three loan spells (Crystal Palace, Ajax and Charlton Athletic). None of which were particularly successful.

Hopefully, Yaya can stay fit and keep banging in the goals for Toulouse.
