Mohammed "Momo" Sylla (born 13 March 1977) is a Guinean footballer. Sylla has become something of a cult figure at many of his clubs.

Sylla, a Guinea international, started his football career at French Second Division club Créteil, on the outskirts of Paris, before moving on to Le Havre when he was 18. He has also played for Le Mans and St. Johnstone.

His former St. Johnstone manager, Sandy Clark had this to say about him: "He's so skilful. The thing about Momo is this - he doesn't even know what he's going to do, so how's a defender supposed to know?"

Sylla's form for St. Johnstone during the 2000 - 01 persuaded Martin O'Neill to sign him for £750,000 in August 2001. Sylla was never really a first team regular at Celtic, but he was an unused substitute in Celtic's 3 - 2 defeat against FC Porto in the 2003 UEFA Cup Final.

Celtic released Sylla in 2005 and he then signed for Leicester City at the beginning of the 2005-06 season. He then had a short stint with Scottish Premier League club Kilmarnock in early 2007.
