Bubacar Njie Kambi (born 14 March 1988), known as Bacari, is a Gambian footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club San Fernando CD.

Club career[edit]

Born in Mataró, Barcelona, Catalonia, to Gambian parents,[1][2] Bacari played for four clubs as a youth (all in his native region, mainly RCD Espanyol[3]), finishing his formation with CE Mataró and starting his career as a central defender, being known as Buba.[4] He made his senior debuts with CE Premià, then played two-and-a-half seasons with Real Zaragoza and Real Valladolid's reserve teams.[5]

On 20 March 2011, Bacari made his official debut with Valladolid's main squad, coming on as a substitute for Álvaro Antón for the last eight minutes of the 1–0 Segunda División home win against Girona FC.[6] He contributed with one goal[7] in 131 minutes during the campaign, as the Castile and León side finished in seventh position.

In July 2011, Bacari signed with RCD Espanyol B.[8] On 3 December he made his first La Liga appearance with the first team, replacing Álvaro Vázquez in the dying minutes of a 1–2 away defeat against Valencia CF.[9] On 20 July of the following year he joined CE L'Hospitalet, in the third level.[10]

After being Hospi's second top scorer during his only season, only behind Sergio Cirio, Bacari moved to Bulgaria with PFC Cherno More Varna.[11] On 29 May 2017, after four First Professional Football League campaigns and an average of five goals, his contract was terminated by mutual consent.[12]

International career[edit]

On 4 June 2016, Bacari made his debut for Gambia, starting in a 0–4 home loss against South Africa for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.[13]
