DID YOU KNOW ?

Kanouté was the first foreign-born player to win the African Footballer of the Year Award.

Kanouté has been practicing Islam since he was around the age of 20. He refused to wear a Sevilla shirt bearing the name of club sponsor 888.com, due to the fact the website is used for gambling, which is against the principles of Islam.

After scoring a goal in a January 7, 2009 Copa Del Rey match against Deportivo La Coruña, Kanouté lifted his jersey and displayed a black shirt underneath emblazoned with the word "Palestine". The action was interpreted by BBC sources as a protest against the massive Israeli army operation in the Gaza Strip ongoing at that time.
