Malick was born in Düsseldorf on 8 August 2001 to a Senegalese father and a Finnish mother. He started his career in 2009 with Fortuna Düsseldorf, before moving within the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen to Bayer Leverkusen and then Borussia Mönchengladbach. His arrival at Schalke in 2015 was the final step ahead of his move to Milan. Standing at 194cm and weighing in at 80kg, he is a physical player, perfectly suited to his role: he is headstrong, agile, tough and has a good character. It must also be said that he can play with the ball at his feet too. Thiaw certainly has the vision to pick out a pass.
