Tiassé Koné (born 11 October 1981 in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire) is an ivorian international football goalkeeper currently playing for Issia Wazi.[1]


In 2007, Koné won the Côte d'Ivoire Premier Division with Africa Sports for the first time since 1999. In January 2008, he made the step to Spartak Nalchik. After 6 months in Russia, he moved to Belgian Second Division team UR Namur in July 2008, where he played until November. Being unable to find his way into the starting eleven, he then was released from his contract. For the 2009 season, he went back to his home squad Africa Sports,[2] where he had to compete with young keeper Okoua for the roal as main keeper. In 2010, he left Africa Sports to join Issia Wazi.

International career[edit]

He was called up to the Côte d'Ivoire national football team for the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations, being the only locally based player in the ivorian squad.
