A huge star back in his homeland, the former ASEC Mimosas prodigy has been involved in every major international tournament Côte d'Ivoire have contested since his debut against Niger in July 2000. A graduate of the Jean-Marc Guillou Academy, the Turbo d’Adjame (Adjame Turbo) nonetheless made just one appearance during the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifiers, having experienced a difficult last two years.
In May 2008, after five testing months following his return from the CAF Africa Cup of Nations, Dindane ruptured knee ligaments while representing Lens in a Ligue 1 meeting with Monaco. The injury kept him sidelined for seven months and, after finally marking his comeback in January 2009, he plundered just two goals in 12 Ligue 2 outings before the curtain fell on the 2008/09 campaign. It was his lowest total with the northern French side after notching at least six strikes in each of his previous three campaigns.
Before moving to France, Dindane made serious waves in Belgium, firing 67 goals in 174 games for Anderlecht and registering one notable effort against Real Madrid during a UEFA Champions League encounter in 2001.
Eager to experience another championship, the forward was loaned by Lens to Portsmouth last summer in a deal that included an automatic purchase clause. Contractual issues threatened to end his season in March this year, but he was able to return to action a month later and was involved in Pompey's incredible FA Cup run.
