Alusine Fofanah

Born in Sierra Leone, Alusine moved to Australia as a refugee when he was a child where he began playing football for Marconi Stallions.

At only 14 years of age the midfielder trailed with Manchester City’s U18 team, scoring six goals in two matches before returning home due to visa issues.

Picked up by the Western Sydney Wanderers for the Foxtel National Youth League 2013/14 season, Alusine scored his first NYL goal against Central Coast Mariners before making his Hyundai A-League debut in Round 15 against Adelaide United.

Alusine left the Wanderers on 1 June 2016 following the end of his contract.
