The King Of Benin Could Be On His Way.

The King Of Benin Could Be On His Way.

Romuald Boco captained Benin in the 2008 African Nations Cup in what was only the country's second time qualifying for the Competition. He is very popular and is commonly known as the king of Benin.

He first played in England in 2005 when he joined Accrington Stanley, he soon became a popular figure with the fans because they were 'loco for Boco. He scored their first 2 League goals in 2006 when they beat Barnet 2-1, they had won the Football Conference title the previous season, returning to the Football League after 44 years in the wilderness.

He made 71 league appearances scoring 7 goals before moving to Sligo, signing for Paul Cook in February 2008. Cook said at the time: 'I didn't think I'd get him, I thought that he would be out of our reach but, thankfully we have secured him.'

He had 2 seasons at Sligo making 55 appearance scoring 10 goals, he then left the League of Ireland club and went back to England signing for Burton Albion on 24th February 2010.

He only made 8 appearances for the brewers before joining Cook again, rejoining Sligo on 30th July 2010. He played a major part in helping Rovers win the 2010 FAI Ford Cup playing on the left and often moving to right wing. When he first signed for Sligo Rovers he was a striker that was sometimes used as a centre midfielder and then changed to right-back.

Boco again left Sligo after making 15 appearances and scoring 5 goals. He went to China and played for Shangai East Asia were he made 22 appearances scoring 1 goal.

He rejoined Sligo on 19th of December 2011, signing for Cook for the third time.

He made 11 appearances and scored 1 goal, he then followed Cook back to Accrington Stanley, signing for Cook for the fourth time on the 31st of August 2012.

He made a good start at the Crown ground, scoring vital goals helping Stanley keep their league status. He scored 2 goals for Cook when Accrington lost 4-3 at the Proact. He then scored the only goal of the game, when Stanley beat Chesterfield who dominated thee game, this time scoring against a team managed by Paul Cook.

The left Winger has built up a reputation for his tireless work rate and running. He's not afraid to shoot from distance and as scored some spectacular goals.

The 27 year old should be known as the boomerang because no matter where he goes he always comes back to Cook.

So hopefully it shouldn't belong before he links up with Cook for the fifth time, so watch this space.
