Mathieu Dossevi (born 12 February 1988) is a Togolese footballer who plays for Ligue 1 side FC Toulouse and the Togo national team as a winger.



Dossevi joined Valenciennes from Le Mans in the summer of 2010 and played 110 times for them scoring eleven goals for Ligue 1. On 18 March 2014, Dossevi stated that he would leave Valenciennes at the end of the season.[1]


In July 2014, Dossevi signed for the Greek champions Olympiakos, for an undisclosed fee.[2][3]

While former manager Michel had been reluctant to play him regularly, new manager Vítor Pereira used him twice in a row in the starting line-up and Dossevi proved his quality by scoring both against Skoda Xanthi and Panetolikos in the Greek Super League.[4]

Standard Liège (loan)[edit]

On 1 September 2015, he signed a one-year contract with Standard Liège on loan from Olympiakos.[5]

In January 2016, Standard Liège exercised its option to sign Dossevi permanently until the summer of 2020, for a transfer fee of €1.3 million.[6]

FC Metz (loan)[edit]

On 31 August 2017, he signed a season-long contract with Ligue 1 club FC Metz on loan from Standard Liège while Metz was given an option to purchase the player at the end of the season,[7] and Metz definitively bought Dossevi on 30 May for a transfer fee of €3 million, even though they were relegated to French second tier.[8]


On 3 August 2018, Toulouse announced the signing of the third best passer of last season behind Neymar and Florian Thauvin. Dossevi has signed a two-year contract, for a transfer fee of €2.5 million.[9]

International career[edit]
