Lone Star Goalkeeper Boison Wynney Joins Another Spanish Club

Liberia international goalkeeper, Boison Wynney de Souza, has joined the list of players making moves to new clubs in the 2018 summer transfer window after he signed with Mallorca B, the junior team of Spanish second tier club, Real Club Deportivo Mallorca.

The 21-year-old goalkeeper put an end to his time with the Spanish league fourth level club, Club Deportivo Binissalem, by signing a two-year deal with Mallorca B, which plays in the Tercera Division, the same division as his previous club.

Wynney’s move to Mallorca B was announced by the club via its official Twitter page. His move to Mallorca B has made it his sixth Spanish club in his professional football career. The Liberian shot-stopper has spent his entire playing career in the lower tiers of Spanish football as he’s yet to taste a top league football.

With Wynney joining Mallorca B, his hopes of playing in any of Spain’s top two divisions has gotten brighter with the senior team being a regular in the second and first tier of Spanish football. The club spent 36 years between the first and second tier of Spanish football before being relegated to the Segunda B, the third tier of Spanish football in 2017. However, they made their return to the second tier of Spanish football at the end of the 2017-18 season after just one year in the third tier.

Born to a Liberian father and a Brazilian mother, Wynney was eligible to represent either Spain, Brazil, or Liberia on the international level. With slim chances of representing Spain or Brazil at the international level, Wynney accepted the invitation from suspended national team coach, James Debbah, to represent the Lone Star of Liberia.

He made his debut on June 5, 2017 in a friendly match against Sierra Leone. He came off the bench in the second half to help Liberia grab a 1-0 win at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.

Five days after his debut against Sierra Leone, Wynney made his competitive debut for the Lone Star in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Zimbabwe. He played the entire match and made some brilliant saves but was unable to prevent the Lonestar from bowing to a 3-0 defeat away at Zimbabwe.
