Official: Sekou Sanogo joins Al Ittihad


Now it’s official, Sekou Sanogo will not be joining Roma this January as he has snubbed the Giallorossi in favor of a move to Saudi outfit Al Ittihad. The Ivorian midfielder had been heavily linked to Roma as a potential January reinforcement to play alongside Steven Nzonzi in Eusebio Di Francesco’s 4-2-3-1 formation, however, Monchi will now have to look elsewhere.
