“I am delighted to have signed for this great club. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Proline FC and would like to thank everyone at the club, and the fans, for their fantastic support over the past seasons. However, when Vipers SC come knocking on your door, it is an incredible opportunity.
“From my conversations with the head coach on day one in training, I am excited about the vision and plans he has for the team. It’s clear to see that Robertinho is building a team to win. I am now looking forward to more pre-season training, friendlies and getting the 2021/22 season started.”
Anukani joins the Venoms from Fufa Big league side Proline FC, a side he joined in 2017. At Proline, the 21 year old made 45 appearances and went on to score 23 goals.
