Josuha Guilavogui (born 19 September 1990) is a French professional footballer who plays for Atlético Madrid, as a defensive midfielder.[1] He is a French youth international and has represented his nation at the 2009 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship, where the team reached the semi-finals.

Career[edit]

Saint-Étienne[edit]

Guilavogui has played for Saint-Étienne since 2005 after joining the Rhône-Alpes-based club from his local club Sporting Toulon. He was promoted to the senior squad following the firing of Laurent Roussey and the hiring of new manager Alain Perrin, who was looking to reshuffle Saint-Étienne's defense and fill the squad, which was decimated with injuries.[2]

Guilavogui made his professional debut on 3 January 2009 coming on as a late substitute in Saint-Étienne's 1–0 victory over Bordeaux in the Coupe de France.[3]

Atlético Madrid[edit]

On 2 September 2013, it was reported that Guilavogui had passed medical with La Liga outfit Atlético Madrid and signed a 5 year long contract in a deal worth €10 million.[4]
