Don Keana, the talented 22-year-old midfielder from the Solomon Islands, has made a surprising decision to play for Waneagu United in the upcoming season of the Telekom S-League. The move comes as a shock to many fans and pundits, as Keana was heavily linked to the reigning champions, Solomon Warriors. The player cited personal reasons to make this change.
Keana had even trained with the Solomon Warriors squad, but ultimately decided to return to Waneagu, the team he represented in the 2021/22 season. The midfielder’s decision to snub the Warriors has left many fans scratching their heads, but Keana seems to have his reasons for choosing Waneagu over the reigning champions.
The midfielder has just returned from playing in Australia for Peninsula Power, and his experience in the highly competitive Australian league will undoubtedly serve him well as he looks to make an impact in the Telekom S-League.
Keana has already represented the Solomon Islands national team, and he was part of the squad that recently competed in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. His impressive performances on the international stage have made him one of the most highly rated young talents in the Solomon Islands, and his decision to play for Waneagu will undoubtedly be a major boost for the club.
With Keana in their midfield, Waneagu will be hoping to challenge for the title this season and improve on their sixth-place finish in the 2022/23 campaign. The midfielder’s technical ability, vision, and passing range make him a valuable addition to any team, and Waneagu will be hoping that he can help them take their game to the next level.
It remains to be seen how Keana will fare in the upcoming season, but there is no doubt that he will be one of the players to watch in the Telekom S-League. His decision to join Waneagu instead of the reigning champions may have raised a few eyebrows, but if he can help his new team achieve success, then he will undoubtedly have made the right choice.
