Franck-Yves Bambock (born 7 April 1995) is a French footballer who plays for Portuguese club Marítimo as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Douala, Bambock moved to France at early age, and joined Paris Saint-Germain's youth setup in 2008 at the age of 13, after starting it out at Antony Sport.[1] He made his senior debuts with the reserves in 2013, in Championnat de France amateur.

On 16 July 2015 Bambock moved abroad for the first time in his career, signing a two-year deal with Spanish Segunda División side SD Huesca.[2][3] He made his professional debut on 22 August, coming on as a second-half substitute for Iñigo Ros in a 2–3 home loss against Deportivo Alavés.[4]

On 12 July 2017, Bambock signed a one-year deal with Eredivisie side Sparta Rotterdam.[5] After appearing rarely and mainly for the B-side, he cut ties with the club the following February.[6]

On 1 February 2018, Bambock returned to Spain and its second level after signing for Córdoba CF,[7] but registration problems meant he could not feature for the side during the remainder of the season.[8] He was finally included in the B-team in Segunda División B in April,[9] being only registered to the first-team on 16 August.[10]

On 18 January 2019, Bambock terminated his contract with the Blanquiverdes,[11] and joined Israeli side Maccabi Petah Tikva FC four days later.

On 21 June 2019, Bambock signed a contract with Marítimo.[12]
