Abdoulaye (Abbe) Ibrahim (born July 25, 1986 in Lomé, Togo) is a football striker.


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. His rights were traded to Toronto FC[2] on 25 January 2007, and in April 2007, he signed a senior contract with the expansion club.[3]

Ibrahim was waived by Toronto FC in late June 2007 to make space for the signing of Collin Samuel. In February 2008, signed a three-year contract with FC Kharkiv in Ukraine.[4] In 2011, he moved to Dynamic Togolais.
