Formé au Stade Toulousain où il va évoluer pendant 13 ans, dont 11 au sein de l'Equipe Première, "Garba" compte 32 sélections en Equipe de France. Trois-quart polyvalent (centre, ailier, arrière) il fait partie de la génération dorée du Stade Toulousain. 

Il signe à l'Aviron Bayonnais en 2007 où il ne restera qu'une saison à cause d'une blessure au genou qui le forcera à mettre un terme à sa carrière de joueur. Il devient alors consultant pour Eurosport et co-entraîne l'équipe Cadets du Stade Toulousain. 

He started his career in Toulouse where he played during 13 years, including 11 in the Pro Team. "Garba" played also 32 games with the French Team. Polyvalent (centre, wing, back), he was part of the golden generation of the Club of Toulouse.

He joined Bayonne in 2007 where he only remained one season due to a knee injury that forced him to end his playing career. He then became a consultant for Eurosport (tv channel) and co-coached the U16s team of Toulouse.

He joined the Club in 2014 as assistant coach, in charge of the skills. On September 22, 2014, he became backwards coach.

In 2016, he extended his contract until 2020.
