Lévy Clément Madinda (born 22 June 1992) is a Gabonese professional footballer who plays for Greek club Asteras Tripoli F.C. as a central midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Celta[edit]

Born in Libreville, Madinda started playing football for AS Stade Mandji. In October 2010, after having been spotted by the club during a youth tournament in Burkina Faso, the 18-year-old moved to Spain and signed a five-year contract with Celta de Vigo, going on to remain several seasons registered for the reserves.[1]

Madinda made his official debut with the Galicians' first team on 31 October 2012, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–2 away loss against UD Almería for the season's Copa del Rey.[2] He first appeared in La Liga on 30 March of the following year, coming on as a late substitute in a 2–2 home draw to FC Barcelona.[3]

On 19 January 2016, Madinda renewed his contract until 2018, being immediately loaned to Gimnàstic de Tarragona until June.[4] On 12 July, his loan was extended for a further season, now with a buyout clause.[5]

Asteras Tripoli[edit]

In June 2017, Madinda left Balaídos to join Greek side Asteras Tripoli FC.[6]

International career[edit]

Madinda made his debut for Gabon in 2011,[7] and was selected for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations squad.[8] On 14 November 2012 he scored his first goal as an international, netting the opener in a 2–2 friendly draw with Portugal played in his hometown, through a penalty kick.[9]

In December 2014, Madinda was named as part of Gabon's provisional squad for the 2015 African Cup of Nations.[10]
