Franklin Sasere: NPFL Player Joins Europa League Club

Franklin Sasere has finalised his switch from Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Sunshine Stars to FC Lugano in Europe.

The striker signed for the Europa League side on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee on Thursday.

Sasere has been handed jersey No. 27 and will be battling with Mattia Bottani, Filip Holender, and Carlinhos for a place in the starting XI. 

The Nigerian is expected to make his debut statement when Lugano welcome relegation-threatened Xamas to the Cornaredo Stadium.

Lugano are placed eighth in the Swiss Super League with six points from eight outings.
