Sierra Leonean winger, Augustus Kargbo has signed a three-year contract with Italy’s Serie C side, Cesena FC. Formerly with FC Crotone, Kargbo now dons Cesena’s iconic Number 10 jersey.
Kargbo’s transition from his previous club to Cesena FC marks a pivotal juncture in his journey. His exceptional performance and growth at his former club have gained him attention, propelling him into a coveted position within Cesena’s roster.
