After successful negotiations, former Asante Kotoko midfielder Richard Senanu has officially joined Legon Cities FC.
The skillful midfielder has inked a two-year contract with Legon Cities FC, with the agreement subject to a medical examination.
Senanu’s move to Legon Cities FC comes after departing from Nations FC, a team that earned promotion to the 2023/24 season of the Ghana Premier League.
His journey to Legon Cities FC follows his stint with Nations FC, formerly known as Bekwai Youth Club, which he joined in January 2022 after his release from Asante Kotoko.
Senanu’s time at Asante Kotoko came to an end due to being deemed surplus to requirements, stemming from his recovery from a career-threatening injury.
The 27-year-old midfielder will find familiarity at Legon Cities FC as he reunites with his former coach from Asante Kotoko, Paa Kwesi Fabin.
In 2018, Senanu faced a setback when he suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury during a CAF Confederation Cup qualifier against Cameroonian giants Coton Sport. He subsequently underwent surgery in Germany and underwent nearly two years of recovery.
Following his recovery, he regained full fitness and was included in Mariano Barreto’s squad for the recently concluded season, although he was unable to participate in competitive matches.
Senanu played a pivotal role in helping Nations FC secure promotion to the top-tier league in the previous season.
