Aly Cissokho is a France international football player of Malian descent who currently features for Spanish giants Valencia. He plays as a left-back and is rated as one of the best players in his position in the world.
Cissokho commenced his professional club football career at the French second division club FC Gueugnon and made his debut for the club on the last match of the 2006-2007 season. He signed a three-year contract after that but at the end of the 2007-2008 season signed a three-year deal with the Portuguese first division club Vitoria de Setubal.
In January 2009 Cissokho was signed by Portuguese giants FC Porto for 300,000 euros and came into the limelight against Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League in which he negated star player Cristiano Ronaldo over both legs.
In the summer of 2009 Aly Cissokho was almost signed by Italian giants AC Milan for 15 million euros. However, a medical examination discerned that he had problems in his teeth that could cause potential spinal problems in the future. Cissokho subsequently moved to French giants Porto and became an instant hit at the Ligue 1 giants.
In August 2012 Valencia signed Cissokho from Porto for €5 million on a four-year contract.
