Knee injury ruins Buba’s Horsens farewell

Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Bubacarr Sanneh’s AC Horsens career has come to an abrupt end after the Gambia defender suffered a knee injury that will keep him out for up to six weeks.

The 23-year-old, who joined Horsens from local club Real de Banjul in 2014, has featured 100 times, scoring 14 goals in total for the CASA Arena Horsens side and he doesn’t look set to add up his appearance.

The defender suffered a knock in Horsens’ goalless draw with OB Odense on Sunday but further scans showed he injured his knee that will keep him out of action until the New Year.

He misses his club’s remaining two matches against HobroIK and SønderjyskE this Sunday and next Friday respectively.

The 1.83m tall sturdy centre-back will leave Horsens after four seasons to join their Superliga rivals FC Midtjylland on a four-year contract in January.

He told Horsens Folkeblad: “I will come to the last home match against SønderjyskE [on December 8] to say goodbye to my teammates and the fans.”

“AC Horsens has been like a home for me. This was where I started and the club has meant a lot to me. Maybe I will come back one day. I will always think of Horsens as the place where I developed as a football player and came to the national team.”

The club, in a statement, also said it is preparing a sending off for their rocky defender who will draw the curtain on his Horsens career next week.

“The home crowd is fortunate enough to say goodbye to Bubacarr Sanneh on Friday, December 8, when he receives flowers before the battle against SønderjyskE,” it wrote on its website.

Midtjylland, who currently lie second on the Danish league, fought off interest from rivals and league leaders Brøndby IF, to secure the signature of the former Real de Banjul defender for an undisclosed fee. Source: Gambia Sports
