Djibril Sidibé (French pronunciation: ​[dʒibʁil sidibe]: born 29 July 1992) is a French professional footballer who plays as a full back for Premier League club Everton, on loan from Monaco of Ligue 1, and the France national team.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Djibril Sidibé plays as a full back, but can also be utilized in midfield. He began his career at his hometown club Troyes in 2000 at the age of eight.[3] Sidibé made his club debut during the 2009–10 season while the club was playing in the Championnat National, the third division of French football. He made his professional debut on 17 September 2010 in a league match against Grenoble.[4]

Lille[edit]

After helping earn Troyes promotion to Ligue 1, the 19-year-old signed for Lille in July 2012, as cover for Mathieu Debuchy.[5] Sidibé made his debut for Lille on 25 August 2012 against OGC Nice, the start was his first appearance in Ligue 1 and he marked it with a goal, scoring a 59' minute equalizer in a 2–2 draw.[6][7] In Lille's 2012–13 UEFA Champions League group stage matchday 5 game against BATE Borisov in Minsk on 20 November, Sidibé helped Lille avenge their 3–1 matchday 1 home defeat against BATE Borisov by scoring from a long angled strike in the first half. Sidibé was sent off in the second half, for a second bookable offense, but Lille held on for a 2–0 victory, securing their only points of their 2012–13 UEFA Champions League group stage campaign.[8]

Sidibé scored Lille's equalizing goal against Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016 Coupe de la Ligue Final; however PSG won the match 2–1.

Monaco[edit]

On 8 July 2016, Sidibé joined AS Monaco on a five-year deal.[9] On 22 November, Sidibé headed home Benjamin Mendy's cross for Monaco's first goal in the 48th minute and provided the assist for Thomas Lemar in the 53rd minute to enable Monaco to defeat Tottenham Hotspur 2–1 at home in the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League group stage Group E matchday 5 match and ensure that Monaco would finish on top of Group E at the conclusion of the group matches on 7 December.[10]

In his first season with Monaco, Sidibé played an integral role as the Principality club won the Ligue 1 title for the first time in 17 years and he was named to the UNFP Ligue 1 Team of the Year.[11]

Everton[edit]

On 7 August 2019, Sidibe joined Premier League side Everton on an initial season-long loan; the deal included an option to make the move permanent at the end of the loan.[12]
