Floriana sign Christoffer Mafoumbi

Floriana FC secured the services of Congo thirty-year old international goalkeeper Christoffer Mafoumbi. This will be Mafoumbi’s second spell in Malta after playing for Mosta in seasons 2020/21 and 2021/22,

French-born Mafoumbi started his career with Lille OSC and RC Lens at youth level and also played for US Le Pontet in France before a spell with FK Vereya Stara Zagora in Bulgaria and one with Free State Stars in South Africa before moving to the UK where he played for Blackpool and Morecambe. In October 2020, he moved to Malta to join Mosta, leaving the club in summer 2022. He signed for FC Differdange 03 in Luxembourg but last summer moved to FC Noah in Armenia although he was released in January.

Christoffer Mafoumbi is the club’s first signing since the appointment of Darren Abdilla as coach. The club had earlier extended the contracts of Alexandros Kouros and Guy Serge Yameogo but released Lorenzo De Grazia, Willis Furtado and Christos Rovas while Adam Magri Overend left the club to join Sliema Wanderers.
