On 14 August, i made my Premier League debut for the Reds, scoring in a 4–3 away win against Arsenal. Having missed Liverpool's defeat at Burnley on match day two through a slight shoulder injury, i returned to the starting line-up against Burton Albion in the League Cup where i contributed two assists in a 5–0 win.

Fastest Hattrick in Premier League History

Fastest Hattrick in Premier League History

What a day

On 16 May 2015, during Southampton's final home match of the season, I scored three times in 2 minutes 56 seconds in a 6–1 win over Aston Villa to set a new Premier League record for the fastest hat-trick. The record had been held since 1994 by Robbie Fowler, who scored three against Arsenal in 4 minutes and 33 seconds.

2014-2016

On 1 September 2014, I took the next big step in my career as i finally moved to england to join the Premier League side Southampton.

I made my debut on 23 September in a 2–1 League Cup victory over Arsenal, winning the penalty for Southampton's first goal. I made my first league appearance for the club in another 2–1 victory over Queens Park Rangers four days later, starting and assisting Ryan Bertrand for the first goal of the game.

I scored my first goal for the club in a 8–0 victory over Sunderland on 18 October 2014, although this was subsequently credited as an own goal by Patrick van Aanholt. So i scored my first goal in my very next game, a 1–0 win over Stoke City a week later. In December and January he scored in three successive matches, against Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal.

2012-2014

During the olympic games with senegal in 2012 i got lucky to catch the attention of former Red Bull Salzburg Head of Sports Ralf Rangnick and was able to take the next step in my carreer. On 31 August 2012, i moved to Austrian Bundesliga side Red Bull Salzburg for the third biggest transfer fee that FC Metz had ever received. It was a pleasure and honor for me to join the current austrian champion.

I was lucky to help the team straight from the start. I scored my first hat-trick for the club on 31 October, in a 3–1 away win at Kalsdorf in the third round of the Austrian Cup. On 27 October 2013, i netted my first hat-trick in the Austrian Bundesliga, during a 3–0 win away to Grödig. I scored another treble on 7 May 2014 as Salzburg won 7–0 at Horn in the cup semi-finals. This amazing season for me and the team ended with winning a domestic double.

Senegal

I got to be part of the Senegal team at the 2012 Olympic tournament, and started every match as they advanced through Group A as runners-up to Great Britain before losing 4–2 after extra time in the quarter-finals to eventual champions Mexico.

I was ruled out of the Senegalese squad for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after suffering a calf injury in Southampton's 2–0 win against Arsenal on 1 January 2015. I finally returned to the squad, and started in our final two group matches against South Africa and Algeria in a group stage exit.

Where it all began

Born in Sédhiou, I started my career at the Académie Génération Foot, Senegalese football academy.

As I was 15 years old, I left my hometown and made a 500 mile journey with my family to the north to Dakar.

"I left my hometown, to visit my uncle. I took the opportunity to be part of a try out training." At the try out, an old man asked me what i'm up to with my shabby football shoes and pants. That was all i had at this time. But I was on the pitch and showed my skills, I could see in his eyes how impressed he was. "I take you right away he said." And so I started at the Académie Génération Foot.

For me, every game is a chance to thank all the people around me for their amazing support in the past, my host family in Dakar, my uncle and most of all my family.
