Yussuf Yassin Saleh (Amharic: ዩሱፍ ያሲን ሳላህ?) (born March 22, 1984) is a Swedish-born Ethiopian footballer who currently plays for FC Tobol and the Ethiopia national football team. Yussuf was originally an attacking midfielder but also an adept left-winger which is the position he currently plays in.[better source needed] He has previously played for Hässelby SK FF, Vasalunds IF, Ciudad de Murcia and AIK.
Yussuf was playing in the Swedish third tier with Vasalunds IF when he was signed by Stockholm club AIK in the summer of 2008. He made his Allsvenskan debut against IF Elfsborg on 10 August that same year. Yussuf became Swedish champion with AIK in 2009, but the following year he was sent out on loan to nearby Superettan club Syrianska FC because he needed to play more games to continue his development. During his loan, Yussuf helped the club get promoted to Allsvenskan for the first time ever and the next year he returned on loan to play with them again, this time at the highest level of the Swedish football league system. After his contract with AIK expired he signed a one year deal with Syrianska for the 2012 season. In 2013, he completed a transfer to Kazakhstan side FC Tobol.
Yussuf was born in Sweden to Ethiopian parents and in 2012 he was called in to represent Ethiopia in the 2012 edition of CECAFA hosted in Uganda. He was named in the Ethiopian squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
