Despite intense interest from several top European clubs, Bayer Leverkusen emerged victorious, securing the services of the coveted striker.
The 22-year-old football prodigy’s extraordinary journey began with an impressive one-season stint at Royale Union SG in Belgium.
Under the guidance of Karel Geraerts, Boniface emerged as the joint-leading scorer in the Europa League and played a pivotal role in the club’s remarkable success in the Jupiler Pro League.
Throughout the season, he displayed his immense talent, contributing to a remarkable 34 goals (22 goals and 12 assists) in 55 appearances, spanning his time at both Bodo/Glimt and Royale Union SG.
