Ibou Sawaneh quits Belgium side Tubize to pen Luxembourg deal

Monday, February 04, 2019

Scorpions’ veteran striker, Ibou Sawaneh has left the Belgian second-tier side AFC Tubize to pen a deal with Luxembourg top-tier side Union Titus Pétange.

Gambia Sports reported that the striker was a free agent after quitting AFC Tubize, where he endured difficult times.

Many had viewed Sawaneh’s move as a bid to revive his career which has stalled since last April. The 32-year-old had a trial with Lierse Kempenzonen in November but the Belgian First Amateur Division club passed on the decision to sign him.

Sawaneh, who was once a sort after talent in 2012, attracting interest from St Etienne, Bayer Leverkusen and other top European clubs, will now use the short-term move to Luxembourg to revive his career.

Titus Pétange currently lies 7th on the 14-team Luxembourg National Division with 18 points after 13 outings.
