Parfait Mandanda (born 10 October 1989 in Nevers) is a Congolese[2] footballer. He currently plays as a goalkeeper for Charleroi in the Belgian Pro League.


Mandanda began his career at SM Caen, moving in 2001 to French Ligue 1 club Bordeaux in the youth system. He graduated to the first team in 2008. He was loaned out to AS Beauvais from Bordeaux in January 2009 for the rest of the season,[3] and in July 2009, Beauvais took up the option to make Madanda's move permanent.

International career[edit]

Mandanda was named in the Congo DR squad against France B on 5 February 2008.[4] Mandanda only played in the second half but missed out on a place in the history books as his older brother Steve Mandanda, also a goalkeeper and currently at Crystal Palace F.C., only played in the first half for France.

Officially, he gained his first cap for Congo DR national football team against Gabon on 25 March 2008.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Parfait is the younger brother of France international goalkeeper Steve Mandanda and has two younger brothers. They are all goalkeepers: Riffi and Ever.[6]
