Mohamadou Sumareh (born 20 September 1994) is a Gambian-born Malaysian footballer who plays for Pahang in the Malaysia Super League. He is nick-named "keli boy" by Pahang FA fans because of his slimy and smooth dribbling, as well as ball trickery. He also plays for the Malaysia national team.
Steve Biko FC
After displaying some talent, Sumareh was promoted to the first squad of Steve Biko when he was 16-year-old in late 2010.
A year later, Sumareh travelled to Malaysia and signed for Malaysia Premier League club PDRM on a two-year contract. He made his first-team debut on 7 January 2013, in a match against Betaria FC, with a 5–0 win at home (Hang Jebat Stadium). In 2014, he succeeded in helping PDRM to become the 2014 Malaysia Premier League champions, thus promoted to the Super league for next season.
Sumareh signed for Perlis FA on a one-year contract after the end of the contract with PDRM. He made his Perlis debut on 15 February 2016 against UiTM FC in the Malaysia Premier League, with a 1–0 loss at home.
After helping Perlis reach in the sixth place in Premier League, Sumareh joined Pahang on a free transfer on December 2016 after signing a two-year deal with the Super League club. He made his club debut on 21 January 2017 in Super League Match against Perak away, which resulted in a 1–1 draw. His first Super League goal came on his Darul Makmur Stadium debut on 27 January 2017, in the 14th minute with a 5–0 victory against T–Team.
In October 2018, Sumareh was called up for the Malaysia national team central training from 8 October to prepare for two international friendly matches against Sri Lanka and Kyrgyzstan.
