Jean-Jacques Gosso Gosso (born 15 March 1983 in Abidjan) is an Ivorian footballer who plays as a midfielder and he is currently playing for Turkish side Göztepe.

Gosso, a defensive midfielder, has played in Côte d'Ivoire, Israel, Morocco, France and Turkey.


Stella Club[edit]

Gosso started his career at Stella Club d'Adjamé in his native Cote d'Ivoire. In 2004, he moved to Wydad Casablanca in Morocco, before travelling to Israel to discuss terms with Maccabi Tel Aviv in 2006. Due to financial constraints at the club, they were unable to come up with the transfer fee that the Moroccan club had come up with.


F.C. Ashdod[edit]

Months later Gosso's name came up again but this time word had spread that F.C. Ashdod had agreed terms with the club and player and that he was due to sign a contract. In the end, Gosso did indeed join F.C. Ashdod where he immediately received a starting position in his first league match against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

AS Monaco[edit]

On 8 July 2008, it was announced that Gosso would go on trial with French side AS Monaco FC. On 22 July 2008, it was announced that Monaco would sign Gosso after the successful trial[1] on a three-year contract.[2]


Gosso signed a three-year contract with the Turkish Süper Lig club Orduspor in July 2011. On 18 October 2012, Gosso left the club after his contract was terminated two years early by mutual consent.[3]

After finishing the 2012/2013 season at Mersin Idmanyurdu, Gosso signed a one-year contract at Ankara's Genclerbirligi.
