Yaya Mamadou Dissa (born 18 September 1975) is a Malian international footballer who last played for Division d'Honneur side Niort Saint-Florent.


Born in Nioro, Dissa began playing youth football for local side AS Mandé. He played as a striker and joined the senior side of AS Commune IV, before moving to Djoliba Athletic Club in 1996. Dissa led Djoliba to the Malian league title in the 1996–97 season, and led the league in goals scored.[1]

His strong performances in the Malian league led to a move to Saudi Premier League side Al-Shabab. At age 26, he moved to Greece where he would play in the Greek Superleague for Athinaikos F.C.,[1] Kerkyra F.C. and Patraikos F.C.

Dissa signed a two-year contract with French Championnat National side Chamois Niortais F.C. in 2004.[2]
