Onetime Gambia’s Most Expensive Footballer Sanneh Walking His Way up in Anderlecht’s Reserves Team

Gambian defender Bubacarr Sanneh is trying to pick up playing time at Anderlecht’s reserves team after being sidelined from the first team.

The 25-year-old should have been playing in the club’s first team but is not in the immediate plans of former Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany who is the coach.

Bubacarr was loaned out to Gotzepe of the Turkish Super Lig and KV Oostende to pick regular playing time and return to Anderlcht’s A-team but all spells turned unsuccessful largely to lost of form and adaptability problem.

There have been talk of another loan spell looming with clubs in Scandinavia named as possible destination for the centre-back but nothing has come of the rumour.

The Bundung-born’s market value, who was Gambia’s most expensive player, has dropped drastically from eight million euros to a 1m euro which would represent a huge lost for Anderlecht if they should let him leave.

The Brussels outfit will have to reinvent the Gambian if they want to recoup the money spent in securing his services by urging gaffer Kompany reconsider using him in games who in fact look to have made up his mind.

Sanneh is now resorting to playing in the U-21 team to get regular games just in case of a transfer offer comes his way but his expensive wages seems to be stumbling block too.

Also called Timber, the scorpion was Denmark’s most valuable defender of all-times when he was being signed in 2018.
