Oumar Kalabane (born 8 April 1981[1] in Conakry) is a professional footballer from Guinea. He most recently played as a defender for Gabala in the Azerbaijan Premier League.

Club career[edit]

Kalabane started his career with Hirondelles de Conakry in his native Guinea, before moving to Étoile de Guinée and then Étoile Sahel of Tunisia in 2000. After five years there, Kalabane was signed by AJ Auxerre of Ligue 1 where he spent two seasons, appearing in 20 league matches.[2] He also played two seasons in the Turkish Super Lig with Manisaspor, and featured in 41 league matches.[3][4]

On 19 July, Gabala announced the signing of Kalabane on a 2-year contract.[5] Kalabane made his debut for Gabala 4 August 2012 in their 1–1 draw against Simurq.[6] Kalabane scored his first and second goals for Gabala in their 4–1 home victory over Sumgayit on 25 August 2012.[7] At the end of his first season Kalabane had played 29 games in all competitions, scoring 2 goals. After playing only 3 of the first 14 games of the 2013–14 season, Kalabane suffered a meniscus tear at his knee during training and underwent surgery at Acibadem Fulya Hospital.[8] Kalabane was told he could leave Gabala in December 2013.[9]

International career[edit]

At the international level, Kalabane has made several appearances for the full Guinea national football team, including 10 qualifying matches for various FIFA World Cups.[10] Kalabane played in four matches at the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations[11] and four matches at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations, where he scored a goal in the opening match, a 2–1 defeat to Ghana.[12]
