The Senegalese centre-back has joined the Yellows on loan

Villarreal and Los Angeles FC have reached an agreement for the loan of defender Mamadou Fall, who will play for the B team for the rest of the 2022/23 season. The Senegalese defender joins Miguel Álvarez’s team to add physical power and defensive capacity.

Muscle and strength in defence

Mamadou Ibra Mbacke Fall (Rufisque, Senegal, 21st November 2002) is a strong and energetic defender, with a great leap and fantastic positional skills. With the American club, he has played a total of 35 matches and more than 2,706 minutes, with five goals and an assist.

The centre-back, aged just 19, came through the ranks at Montverde Academy (Florida) and was then signed by Los Angeles FC in Major League Soccer. Before making his debut for the side from LA, Fall played eight matches for Las Vegas Lights, a reserve team linked to LAFC. After this, he stepped up to the first team. The Senegalese footballer made his debut in US football on 26th June 2021 against Kansas City and bit by bit he earned his place in the squad, until he became a first-team regular.

The Senegalese centre-back joins to provide competition in defence and help the Mini Submarine to continue their good run in LaLiga SmartBank. Welcome, Mbacke!
