Venance Zézé, nickname Zézéto, (born 17 June 1981 in Abidjan) is an Ivorian footballer who is currently playing for Séwé Sport.[3]

International[edit]

He has been capped by the Côte d'Ivoire national side.

Career[edit]

Like many successful Ivorian footballers, he is a product of the famed youth academy at ASEC Abidjan, where he began his career. As a 15 year-old, Zézé scored twice for ASEC Abidjan in the 1999 CAF Super Cup final against Espérance de Tunis.[4] Following this, he moved to Belgian side K.S.K. Beveren in 2001, where he starred with other Ivorians such as Yaya Touré and Gilles Yapi Yapo. He left Beveren in 2003 to join AA Gent where he spent a season before moving to Brussels. In 2005, he returned to his former club Beveren for another season, before moving to Ukrainian side FC Metalurh Donetsk in 2006. After a successful loan to Metalurh's Vyscha Liga rivals FC Metalist Kharkiv in the first half of the 2007/08 season, a permanent transfer was agreed between the clubs on December 14, 2007. His contract with FF Jaro was revoked on 22 September 2011.
