Career[edit]

Ibrahim, a Togolese youth international, has been watched by a number of top European clubs, including Manchester United. Unable to sign in Europe because of visa problems, he signed with the MetroStars in early 2005, after impressing in the pre-season. He was the first Togolese player in Major League Soccer.[1] While showing flashes of top speed, Abbe scored two goals and added three assists in his rookie year. After a few months, he then joined FC Café Opera.[2] His rights were traded to Toronto FC[3] on 25 January 2007, and in April 2007, he signed a senior contract with the expansion club.[4]

Ibrahim was waived by Toronto FC in late June 2007 to make space for the signing of Collin Samuel. On 21 June 2007, Ibrahim then joined Väsby United,[5] and in February 2008, signed a three year contract with FC Kharkiv in Ukraine.[6]
