Sylla started his career with local team Hafia Conakry, before catching the eye of Dutch side Willem II when scoring loads of goals at Gabonese league side USM Libreville. He was the first Guinean footballer to play in the Netherlands and stayed 6 years in Tilburg before moving on to the lower French leagues and short spells in Scotland and Greece. He famously scored two goals for Willem II in an away game at FC Twente, played in the snow; it is said it was the first time he ever saw snow.
Sylla played for the Guinea national football team for several years.
